The WIMBO MUSIC AND VIDEO AWARDS took place yearly in the Ukraine. 2020 was the first year ESC Covers started also taking part with entries from South Africa. During December people could vote and there were 22 categories. In category 18 NADINE from South Africa won over several Eurovision artists like Luca Hanni, Ani Lorak, Victoria and Emmelie de Forest.
Inis Neziri was a special guest at the Selecţia Naţională 2019 final together with Netta (2018 ESC Israel – Winner) and Emmelie de Forest (2013 ESC Denmark – Winner).
All the guests performed a couple of songs each but it was Inis who shined with her performances of Piedestal (from Festivali i Këngës #56 Albania national selection) and also Man’s World (the soul classic).
This was a triumphant return to Romania for Inis after her big success in 2018 where she won the Cerbul de Aur – Golden Stag festival.
Emmelie performed Sanctuary and Only Teardrops and Netta performed her new single Bassa Sababa and Toy.
You can see Inis perform her two songs below as well the performances by Netta and Emmelie.
Emmelie De Forest returns to the spotlight with her brand new single entitled Sanctuary. It is a great pop song that has a strong production and it suits Emmelie’s clear and charming vocals perfectly.
Emmelie spoke about Sanctuary by saying “A Sanctuary could be many different things. To me, it’s all the ideas that pop up in your head and then suddenly you see them transform from a feather in your mind to actual wings. It’s really the feeling of creating something, weather it be a song, a story or a painting. So to me a sanctuary is not just a place to hide from danger, but a place away from the world and the daily life where you can dream and create”.
Sanctuary is available from most digital platforms for download such as iTunes and Google Play.
Emmelie won the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest for Denmark with Only Teardrops and this year she showed her songwriting prowess by composing jointly the United Kingdom Eurovision song by Lucie Jones, Never Give Up On You.
We look forward to hearing more of Emmelie’s new songs in the future and wish her success with this comeback single.
