Senhit has recorded Rise Like A Phoenix in her latest project on the way to Eurovision 2021. She has recorded an inventive and unique and slightly bizarre music video with a tribute to Freddie Mercury of Queen.
Rise Like A Phoenix was of course the winning Eurovision song for Austria in 2015 by Conchita Wurst.
Senhit was chosen to represent San Marino at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Freaky! until the show was cancelled due to the world health pandemic. She also represented them in 2011 with Stand By. However, she will get the chance again to represent San Marino at the 2021 Eurovision.
You can see the video clip of Rise Like A Phoenix below.
Markus Riva x Samanta Tina have released a brand new duet called Man Nesanāk (I can not get it). It is an uptempo electrobeat sound with an almost 80s feel.
Man Nesanāk is composed by Markus Riva and Gints Stankevičs. The track is available to purchase or stream via most digital stores.
Samanta is currently number one on the Latvian charts with her recent single Mēs vairs nē (We no longer).
Samanta Tina was chosen to represent Latvia at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Still Breathing. However, the contest was cancelled due to the virus pandemic around the world. However, she will get the chance to represent Latvia again at the 2021 Eurovision.
Markus Riva has repeatedly tried to represent Latvia at Eurovision. He has been in the Supernova national selection for the consecutive years from 2013 to 2020.

Senhit has released her version of Congratulations by Cliff Richard (1968 ESC United Kingdom). It is definitely different and maybe a little ‘eccentric’ but I guess that is the sort of spin she wanted to put on the song!
Regarding the music video for Congratulations, Senhit advised “This is the vision of what would happen if Federico Fellini and David Bowie would join my birthday party”.
Special thanks to the Electric Light artist Marco Lodola for his astonishing masterpieces Jimi, John, Ziggy and Freddie.
Senhit was selected to represent San Marino at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Freaky but due to the coronavirus mayhem, the contest was cancelled.

Senhit has released her version of the 1975 Eurovision winner by Teach In for The Netherlands. The song is Ding A Dong and she has put her own unique style to the song.
The version of Ding A Dong is very different to the original and it is soulful and retro dance oriented.
Senhit has lots of disguises in the music video including dressing as Wonder Woman!
Senhit was chosen to represent San Marino again at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Freaky! Sadly the contest was cancelled because of the Covid-19 crisis. However, she will get the chance again to represent San Marino at the 2021 Eurovision! She also took part in the 2011 ESC.

The Executive Producer, Sietse Bakker, advised – “The music, the artists, the fans, the competition and the international character combined is what makes the Eurovision Song Contest so special. We now have a year to explore all scenarios in detail with the parties involved and to make the shows happen regardless of the circumstances, with adjustments if necessary. We still aim high!”
During the broadcast of the special Eurovision: Shine A Light show this evening it was announced that Rotterdam will be the host city of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.
An entertaining show gave all 41 songs from the 2020 Eurovision a 30 second slot to celebrate their selections. There were many special guests and emotional times such as Björn Ulvaeus from ABBA making an heart warming speech and all 41 acts from this year singing the 1997 United Kingdom Eurovision winning song Love Shine A Light by Katrina & The Waves, with an appearance at the end of the song by Katrina herself.
Tonight the slogan for the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest was also revealed – #Move The World. It is hoped the contest will take place in November in Warsaw in Poland.
