Efi Gjika returns with her brand new uplifting song entitled Take My Hand. It is a contemporary and anthemic pop track that showcases Efi’s increasingly mature and clear vocal talent.

Take My Hand is composed by Devox @VOX Production and Jenny Jonnas.

Efi says there is a strong youth message in the lyrics of Take Your Hand – “This is a strong message that comes from deep within my heart and I hope all of my supporters feel the same way. Bullying is an issue that is spread all around the globe. At some point in our life, we have all been affected by it. It breaks my heart that there are people who would intentionally cause discomfort to other people. It breaks my heart that people become bystanders, out of fear of becoming the victim of bullying.. I am using my voice for all the kids, teenagers, people who can’t speak up. When you feel like no one understands and no one is there for you, I will be there for you. And when you feel like there is no hope for tomorrow and things are never going to change, know that everything will be okay”.

Efi represented Albania at the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with Barbie and she has since gone on to release several hit songs and music videos such as Stand UpHappy BirthdaySummer Days and Cool Kids.
