Sophia Ivanko had earlier won her national final and by doing so, won the right to represent Ukraine at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest later this year.
Sophia and broadcaster UA:PBC announced back then they would continue working on the entry and today is the day of the reveal, along with the music video!
As one of the writers of the song herself, Sophia says:
My song is about the incredible, magical power of music. Music helps people find their inner strength and cheer up. Whenever life difficulties happen that make you feel sad, you need to sing the melody that comes from your heart. This melody is personal and different for different people. I hope that my “hoo-oo-oo” will wake such melodies in the hearts of everyone.
Dmytro Avdieiev, well-known Ukrainian TV, film and music video director has created this video for Sophia and comments: “It is symbolic that she moves step by step ahead and upwards in our video. She is going towards her dream to become an artist and represent our country at the Junior Eurovision. And everyone around her helps and supports her.”
