Kazakhstan are in for the second year in a row and this year they are sending Yerzhan Maksim to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest!
Yerzhan Maksim is the lucky one!
He is 12 years old and comes from Oral in Kazakhstan.
He has been singing from the early age of five years old already and has been taking music classes since 2012.
Khabar Agency, the Kazakhstani broadcaster, have selected him internally, after him being a known profile in children’s singing competitions!
Yerzhan won Batumi Dolphin Fest 2016, took second place in Slavianski Bazaar 2017, was a finalist in San Remo Junior 2017 and actually came 2nd in Kazakhstan’s national final for Junior Eurovision last year, right after Daneliya Tulesheva!
Earlier today they proudly presented him:
To see what Yerzhan can do, look at this video in which he shows his vocal capacity in Golos Deti (The Voice Kids) in Russia earlier this year, where he reached the final as a contestant!
Yerzhan’s song will be released at a later date.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 itself will take place on Sunday the 24th of November in Gliwice-Silesia, Poland!
