Singing affects our bodies and our souls. A voice that we find appealing may stop the time or drive us forward; it may give us goosebumps and flood us with endorphins. Ben Dolic has such a voice. It is at once crystal clear, warm, euphoric and semi-androgynous. It is a voice unlike any other in today's pop music.

A Berliner-by-choice who grew up in Slovenia and has lived in Switzerland for years, Ben is an ideal representative of modern and cosmopolitan Germany on the Eurovision stage. Born on May 4, 1997, in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, he began to pursue his dream of music at the age of 12.

With a performance of Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror, he applied for Slovenia's Got Talent and made it to the semi-final round. He spent his youth making music, for instance as a member of rap/pop group D Base who took part in the Slovenian Eurovision national selection show EMA in 2016. At 18, Ben moved to Switzerland with his family, where he first learned the German language – and continued to advance his career. In 2017 he released his first solo single.

Then, in 2018, Ben made the most important decision in his still-growing but promising career: he applied for The Voice of Germany. Ben made it to the Blind Auditions, where he immediately enchanted both jurors and audience with his voice – one that calls to mind musical icons like Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake. Eventually, Ben reached second place in the finals and performed around Germany and Austria as part of the Voice of Germany Tour.

Lyrics of Violent Thing

  • English
Got that thing that I can't deny Killing me soft with the big brown eyes Such a violent thing, would you let me know Knockin' me down like a domino You know that I'm, right here, I'm working on love I'm waiting on something I need I think that you, you know, you know what I want You got me on the edge of my seat Oh don't tell your mama Whatchu' doin' tonight Twenty-four hours ago you got that look in your eyes Don't need your number Cus I know you'll be there Happen all night and the beat don't lie we're crystal clear Cus if I got you with me tonight Feeling like I'm feeling tonight Don't tell your mama Oooh you're such a violent thing Oooh you're such a violent thing Shooting high we're getting low Guns and roses all alone And I wanna hear what you gotta say But you won't give me no audio You know that I'm, right here, I'm working on love I'm waiting on something I need I think that you, you know, you know what I want You got me on the edge of my seat Oh don't tell your mama Whatchu' doin' tonight Twenty-four hours ago you got that look in your eyes Don't need your number Cus I know you'll be there Happen all night and the beat don't lie we're crystal clear Cus if I got you with me tonight Feeling like I'm feeling tonight Don't tell your mama Oooh you're such a violent thing Oh don't tell your mama Whatchu' doin' tonight Heyy If I got you… Cus if I got you with me tonight Feeling like I'm feeling tonight Don't tell your mama Oooh you're such a violent thing Oooh you're such a violent thing Don't tell your mama Oooh you're such a violent thing
