Catarina Sandu is competing in ‘O melodie pentru Europa 2020’ with the song “Die for You” and we had the opportunity to talk with her before the final. The National final will take place on 29 February, where 20 songs will compete to win the ticket for Rotterdam.
Hello Catarina Sandu and thank you for taking you time for ESCBubble! First of all, how was your reaction when you heard you will be at O melodie pentru Europa 2020?
Hello! Thank you for the attention! To be honest, I expected getting into the final, but I was kind of ready for everything.
What are your expectation from the contest?
The expectations are already working. All I wanted was a great song, which would help me stand out from the crowd. I guess I had the luck to find the right people at the right time.
What made you decide to enter in the contest?
The song and the fact that I knew I had nothing to lose.
Can you tell us about your song for O melodie pentru Europa, what it is about? And why do you think your song would be a good choice for Moldova?
My song “Die For You” is about the greatest love of all, the one that you could easily give up your life for. I think it would be a great choice for Moldova to go with this song because it’s catchy, it stucks in your head once you hear it, it has international vibes, a nice vocal line, upbeat tempo, nice lyrics, everything you can wish for.
How will be the staging at O melodie pentru Europa 2020? What can we expect from your performance?
The show is ready and it’s gonna be lit! Mysterious, sexy…I can’t reveal to much yet, but there’s gonna be a choreography. I’m working with Iuri Ribac, the same choreographer and creative producer that we worked with in 2017, when I was one of the back-vocalists for Sunstroke Project.
Do you follow Eurovision and have you a favorite song from the contest?
Of course I follow Eurovision every year. My favorite song of all time is “Sound Of Silence” by Dami Im. Oh, and I also love “Euphoria” by Loreen.
Any other plans for 2020? Can we expect new music from Catarina Sandu?
Sure, new music from Catarina is coming! Can’t wait!
In the end, I want to thank you for your time and please, if you have a message for your fans and our readers here on ESCBubble?
Dear readers, I hope I convinced you that this project deserves your attention! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support. I can’t believe in a month “Die For You” reached almost 50k viewers on YouTube. If I didn’t convince you yet, I invite you to watch the National Final Eurovision Moldova, on February 29th and see the show and what I prepared for you! Your support means the world to me! Thank you!
Thank you, ESCBubble!
