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.

Lily Duncan recently made it all the way to the grand final of the 2018 Chwilio am Seren national selection for Wales for the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.  Lily had the great honour of singing the National Anthem at a special rugby match in respect of the Jonah Lomu Legacy.

The Welsh rugby union football club, Aberavon, made a come back for the special game. Jonah Lomu was a New Zealand All Black rugby great who sadly passed away in 2015. Jonah went to the Aberavon Naval club (who no longer exist) to host a training session later played a game that raised a lot of money for charity. The players wanted to raise money for funds for the Jonah Lomu Legacy.

There was lots of entertainment for the public besides the rugby with singing and dancing and a firework display. It took place at Harlequin Road, Port Talbot SA12 6uP, Wales.

Lily did a wonderful interpretation of the National Anthem.

Lily is a rising star with a strong and powerful voice and she impressed many with her journey on Chwilio am Seren. Her version of the 2014 Eurovision winning song, Rise Like A Phoenix, in the Welsh language was a particular highlight.

You can see her version of the Wales 2018 Junior Eurovision song Berta and also Rise Like A Phoenix below. Manw will represent Wales with Berta later this month in Minsk, Belarus.

Lily was recently one of the super finalists in the 2018 Chwilio am Seren national selection for Wales for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

Lily impressed many with her powerful voice and she got to perform live to an audience at The Quadrant Shopping Mall in Swansea. She gave an excellent performance of the 2014 Eurovision winning song by Conchita Wurst, Rise Like A Phoenix. Lily performed the song in the Welsh language. It was a charming and emotional stage presentation.

In the final of the Chwilio am Seren Lily sang a cover of Adre by Caryl Parry Jones. After a regional jury vote Lily was one of three super finalists who got to give their interpretation of the Wales Junior Eurovision song, Berta.

Eventually, Manw was crowned as the winner of the Chwilio am Seren and will represent Wales in Minsk, Belarus in November.

However, I am sure we will be hearing more of Lily in the future. In the meantime check out her performances of Rise Like A Phoenix, Berta and Adre.
