I’m very proud because the number of votes by the people of Estonia in Eesti Laul was amazing, and I’m really, really thankful for all this support and I hope that I can make Estonia proud – and to give a great present for our 100-year jubilee! / Sunt foarte mandra de faptul ca numarul de voturi din partea estonienilor in cadrul Eesti Laul a fost uimitor si sunt cu adevarat recunoscatoare pentru tot sprijinul lor.Sper sa pot face Estonia mandra de mine si sa-i ofer un cadou important cu ocazia jubileului nostru de 100 de ani!

“La forza” is a special song, tell us a bit more about its story, its message and its composers. / “La forza” este un cantec special. Spune-ne mai multe despre povestea, mesajul si compozitorii sai.

Last summer I met Mihkel Mattisen and Timo Vendt after they heard me singing at my friend’s wedding and they thought it might be nice to do some interesting music together. They wrote the song especially for my voice and I really liked the melody. Then me and my friend Ksenia Kuchukova wrote the lyrics and we sent the song to Eesti Laul, and you know the rest!
La Forza is about real love that enlightens our way, gives us wings, takes us to the sky and gives us a real power so that we can even move mountains. It’s about universal love – love for children, love for parents, love for nature. It’s all these kinds of love. / Vara trecuta i-am intalnit pe Mihkel Mattisen si pe Timo Vendt dupa ce m-au auzit cantand la nunta prietenei mele si au crezut ca ar fi bine sa cream impreuna o piesa interesanta. Au scris piesa in special pentru vocea mea si mi-a placut mult. Apoi eu si prietenul meu Ksenia Kuchukova am scris versurile si am trimis piesa la Eesti Laul, restul il stiti!
La Forza vorbeste despre dragostea adevarata care ne lumineaza calea, ne da aripi, ne duce spre cer si ne da o putere reala, astfel incat sa putem muta chiar si muntii. Este vorba despre iubirea universala – iubirea pentru copii, dragostea pentru parinti, iubirea pentru natura. Exista multe feluri de iubire

Aren’t you afraid of participating with this kind of song at a musical contest like Eurovision? / Ai vreo temere in a participa cu o astfel de piesa in cadrul unui concurs precum Eurovision?

I’m not worried at all about that. I hope that this kind of genre will awake interest in people for classical music and vocals and that people will discover that opera and classical music isn’t something boring – instead that it’s something really interesting and beautiful that gives a lot to our souls and hearts. I’m hoping to have an impact like that on people. / Nu sunt deloc ingrijorata. Sper ca acest tip de muzica va trezi interesul oamenilor pentru muzica si vocea clasica si ca oamenii vor descoperi ca muzica clasica nu este plictisitoare. Din contra, este cu adevarat interesanta si frumoasa, ofera multe lucruri sufletelor si inimilor noastre. Sper ca voi avea un impact similar asupra oamenilor.

How are you preparing for the big final from May? / Cum te pregatesti pentru marea finala din mai?

I’m just doing my usual things. Performing, singing and practicing. I’m also making sure to remember to rest and charge my batteries a little bit, because I tend to overwork myself. So, I need to be in balance with work and rest. / Fac doar lucrurile mele obisnuite. Performez, cant si exersez. De asemenea, ma asigur sa-mi amintesc sa ma odihnesc si sa-mi incarc bateriile putin, pentru ca am tendinta de a ma suprasolicita. Deci, trebuie sa fiu in echilibru cu munca si odihna.

This concert is going to tell about love, passion, anger – all these strong emotions that maybe we don’t feel every day.

But, I think that everything we do, we must do with our hearts and souls and if we really love what we do, it will get us somewhere. So, do everything with great love. / Sunt cantareata de opera in primul rand, iar lumea operei nu este usoara; trebuie sa lucrezi foarte mult. Si chiar si atunci cand lucrezi foarte mult, nu inseamna ca vei ajunge pe scena mare, deoarece competitia este imensa.

My message is that in our society we should talk more about real love and real feelings. We need to be here and now – not in our smart phones but really here, connecting with each other and giving love. Love is the greatest power of all. This is what La Forza is all about and I hope you enjoy my song
. / Nu am fost niciodata in Romania, dar am auzit ca aveti o cultura bogata culinara si in vinuri excelente! Deci, sper ca intr-o buna zi voi ajunge acolo si voi vedea cu ochii mei.
Mesajul meu este ca in societatea noastra ar trebui sa vorbim mai mult despre dragostea reala si sentimentele reale. Trebuie sa existam aici si acum – nu pe telefoanele noastre inteligente, ci intr-adevar aici, conectandu-ne unul cu celalalt si oferind dragoste. Dragostea este cea mai mare putere a tuturor. Despre asta este vorba in La Forza si sper ca va veti bucura de piesa mea.
