Ana Soklič

Ana Soklič began her music career at an early age; studying with Alenka Dernač-Bunta, the acclaimed Slovenian musician Darja Švajger (two-time Slovenian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest) and singing coach Nataša Nahtigal.

Soklič has competed twice at EMA (Slovenia's national selection show) and 3 times at the Slovenian Song Festival, where, in 2019, she won 2 jury awards for best interpretation and best song overall.

The Savica-born songstress has often performed her tracks with the backing of a symphony orchestra, including the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra. However, her favourite gigs are when she’s working with smaller ensembles as she feels the connection with the audience is at its most genuine and intimate.

Ana had been due to perform Voda (Water) at the 2020 Contest, and was invited back by RTV to compete with a brand new track.

Lyrics of Amen

Hey child,
Why ya hiding from the light?
Why ya cowering in fright?

Don't tell yourself
The heavens cast you out
And you've fallen from grace.

You'll get beaten and bruised,
You'll be scarred unto your core,
But it's gonna make you who you are.


When ya learn to heal,
When ya learn to rise again,
You can tell the sun amen.

Hallelujah,
We're glorious!
Hallelujah,
The day is dawning!
The storm's relentless,
But everybody knows,
Everybody knows
We're born to the fight.


Hey child,
The fear’ll never go away;
Might as well accept it now.

Learn to persevere,
Learn to count your blessings down…
Greet the future with amen.


Hallelujah,
We're glorious!
Hallelujah,
The day is dawning!
The storm's relentless,
But everybody knows,
Everybody knows
We're born to the fight.

Not until the rain has stopped,
Not until the thunder's hushed
Are we at rest, are we at peace… just imagine it.
Not until the storm has passed,
Not until it's quiet,
Can the heart that's broken cry.


Hallelujah,
We're glorious!
Hallelujah,
The day is dawning!
The storm's relentless,
But everybody knows,
Everybody knows
We're born to the fight.


Hey child,
Why ya hiding from the light?
