Their breakthrough in the global Internet community was a cover on the Perez Hilton's cover competition. Freaky Fortune Part Of Me (Katy Perry cover)  was announced as a brilliant work by the Greek duo and the most "deadly" blogger on earth, Perez Hilton launched their fame across the music industry. After their first success, in 2011, Freaky Fortune released three top-chart singles with top Greek artists.
RiskyKidd is a 19 years old rapper, born and raised in London, by his Jamaican mother and German father. His actual name is Shane Schuller. As growing up in a multicultural environment with many and different music influences and experimental beats, RiskyKidd developed, since his high school years, his unique way of expressing in music, lyrics and rap. The past four years he is a Greek resident and his name got well known after his co-operation with Playmen and Helena Paparizou (Greek Eurovision Winner 2005) in the international hit All Time.
Freaky Fortune and RiskyKidd teamed up when Rise Up was still on the composing process. Their creative combination heightened the outcome and Rise Up was born! Freaky Fortune, Theofilos and Nikolas, both composed and wrote the lyrics in Rise Up and RiskyKidd wrote the rap parts.
Rise Up is filled up with youth’s energy and the Greek participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 is full of positive energy. The urge to rise up above all difficulties and jump out of what keeps us down, the need to pass all over Europe the Greek spirit of never giving up, is all over this dance song!
Everyday stimuli, everyday life, every moment, everyone 's smile and positive feeling is what gave inspiration to these young artists to compose the soundtrack of the most uplifting movement, Rise Up which is spreading across Europe!
The message shall pass though out Europe, the next generation of people will Rise Up and rise on with light. The message will dance-on Europe until we all fly above the ground with our hopes and dreams for a better tomorrow.
All three artists are very keen on the Eurovision Song Contest and they watch the shows together with friends, each year. They strongly believe in this pan-European music contest's dynamics, as it gives the chance to every participant to express and communicate their love about music, holding the capital value of the country's flag.
This year’s Eurovision song contest is an opportunity for the artists to share with everyone around Europe their moto Rise Up and gather all positive energy with music and passion for a brighter future.

Lyrics of Rise Up

English (Original)

INTRO RAP I feel like rising up to the sky like I am a dove, I’m in love with this feeling… am I down or am I up? I can’t frown cause I am in luck, I’ve got the crowd and that’s enough… I’m in love.
Couple Come on and rise up rise up to the sky, Come on and rise up get up and lose your mind, Loosen up your feet and fly, Get off the ground tonight.
Refrain Come on and rise up jump out of what keeps you down, get high and rise up fly get your feet of the ground, come on and rise up rise up rise up rise up rise rise rise…
Bridge I told her rise up, come along and rise up, music makes me wanna, grab somebody rise up.
Couple Come on and rise up dance till the final day, no need to hold back drink like there is no other way, Loosen up your feet and fly, get off the ground tonight.
Refrain Come on and rise up jump out of what keeps you down, get high and Rise up fly get your feet of the ground, come on and rise up rise up rise up rise up rise rise rise…
Bridge I told her rise up, come along and rise up music makes me wanna, grab somebody rise up. I told her rise up, come along and rise up, music makes me wanna, grab somebody rise up.
Rap Yo, I am down to rise up, pour these shots like “why stop”? I see you shaking, I'm a have to smack that my god! I m blowing paper, balling call me later, balling call me later, balling call me mason. Ey, our flow is oh so freaky, I roll with it oh so cheeky, oh please girl no don’t tease me, just got here I’m not leaving.
Refrain Come on and rise up jump out of what keeps you down, get high and rise up fly get your feet of the ground, come on and rise up rise up rise up rise up rise rise rise.

SOULÈVE-TOI
Intro-rap Je ressens que je veux ''arriver'' aux nues, Comme si j'étais un pigeon, je suis amoureux avec ce sentiment. Soit malheureux, soit heureux, mon humeur ne jamais être gâché, car je suis chanceux, j'ai le public avec moi et ça suffit, je suis amoureux.
Couple Viens et arrive aux nues, Viens et soulève-toi, laisse ton esprit libre ''Relâche'' tes pieds et vole Ôte-toi du sol aujourd'hui. Refrain Viens et élève-toi, laisse en arrière ceux qu'ils te tiennent en bas, Sois en bonne humeur, soulève-toi, vole, libère tes pieds par le sol Élève-toi, soulève-toi, élève-toi, soulève toi ... Pont Je lui ai dit de venir avec moi, de se soulever elle-même, la musique me faire vouloir d'embrasser quelqu'un de me soulever avec lui.
Couple Viens et élève-toi, danse avec moi jusqu'au dernier moment, Rien ne nous retenir en bas, nous avançons comme il n'y a pas de manière différente, ''Relâche'' tes pieds et vole Ôte-toi du sol aujourd'hui. Refrain Viens et élève-toi, laisse en arrière ceux qu'ils te tiennent en bas, Sois en bonne humeur, soulève-toi, vole, libère tes pieds par le sol Élève-toi, soulève-toi, élève-toi, soulève toi ...
Pont Je lui ai dit de venir avec moi, de se soulever elle-même, la musique me faire vouloir d'embrasser quelqu'un de me soulever avec lui. Je lui ai dit de venir avec moi, de se soulever elle-même, la musique me faire vouloir d'embrasser quelqu'un de me soulever avec lui.
Rap Yo, je suis prêt de me soulever, mets de shots! Pourquoi tu t'arrêtes? Je te vois d'hésiter mais moi, mon Dieu je le perfectionnerai ... Je vole, je fais de choses ayant d'espoir, notre cours est fol, il m'entraine, s'il te plait ma fille, ne te moque pas de moi, je suis venu de commencer, je ne pars pas!
Refrain Viens et élève-toi, laisse en arrière ceux qu'ils te tiennent en bas, Sois en bonne humeur, soulève-toi, vole, libère tes pieds par le sol Élève-toi, soulève-toi, élève-toi, soulève toi ...
