CBBC alongside BBC Studios’ entertainment and music division has made an internal selection of the singer and song that will travel to Yerevan a. The announcement to Freya was made as a surprise at a London Theatre, where the UK’s representative at Eurovision 2017 broke the news to the young performer:

Freya says: ‘I couldn’t believe it when I found out. I was not expecting it at all, it still doesn’t feel real that I’m going to be representing the UK. I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to be a part of something so exciting. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity so I’m going to go and give it my everything and I hope to do the UK proud.’

Director of BBC Children’s and Education, Patricia Hidalgo, said:

“Freya is an amazing talent and she immediately stood out. Her voice is incredible, so we knew she would be able to showcase such a big song. She’s also a very special, self-effacing young lady who will be a great ambassador for the UK.”

Freya Skye started singing at the age of 5 when she was given a karaoke machine as a present. During the lockdown, she released her first single ‘I Love The Way’, which featured on BBC Introducing, and wrote a few songs. In her free time, Freya likes spending time with her dog Ruby, watching movies, teaching herself piano, and watching football matches with her favorite team, Tottenham Hotspur.
