Lighthouse X is a pop group with a mission: Making the world a slightly better place through the power of music. They will represent Denmark in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Soldiers Of Love.

Lighthouse X consists of three artists who have come together in a strong fellowship. They believe it is possible to create a band that thinks differently. A band that takes social responsibility through music in a new and innovative way.

Lighthouse X represents a whole-hearted attempt at making a positive difference in the world, at inspiring attentive conversations in which we truly listen to one another and in establishing dialogue that makes us open up for all the things that excite us and scare us.

The goal is to harvest the power of music to make us all talk through our hearts, to make sure we share our thoughts and to create space and respect for each other. As the name suggests, Søren, Johannes and Martin wish to be a lighthouse that others can use for navigation – by being the change that they themselves wish to see in the world, while also inspiring and supporting other people who serve as guiding lights.

What you should know about Lighthouse X

What are the three most interesting aspects about your entry?

1. All three members work as actors and singers, and they have all performed in award-winning musicals.

2. All three members were close friends before Lighthouse X became a reality

3. When the clock hit midnight on New Year's Eve 2015, Lighthouse X performed on national TV, singing at the Opera House with the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir

Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?

We gather together, look at each other, deeply in the eyes, as we agree to have fun and to sing from the heart.

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?

It’s a platform of people coming together across all ages, genders, ethnicities and religious backgrounds, and along with this year’s theme, Come Together, it corresponds perfectly with the core message of Soldiers of Love.

Lyrics of Soldiers Of Love

Tell me why we always fuel the fire Why we tend to close our eyes What’s the reason that we keep on hiding We can make it if we try I don’t know Why we don’t care There’s nothing to fear When I know you are there So let’s not wait For someone else to Make it right Make it right Take my hand And never let go Side by side We walk an open road Unbreakable With hope in our hearts Step by step We’ll make a new start Let’s be soldiers of love soldiers of love soldiers of love For life Take my hand And never let go Never let go And let’s be soldiers of love What’s the meaning of a world on fire And a heart without a soul I believe that we can shine a light on What we already ought to know So let’s not wait For someone else to Make it right Make it right Take my hand And never let go Side by side We walk an open road Unbreakable With hope in our hearts Step by step We’ll make a new start Let’s be soldiers of love soldiers of love soldiers of love For life Take my hand And never let go Never let go And let’s be soldiers of love Unbreakable Don’t let it go It’s an open road Time to let it show Invincible Gonna climb the wall Take my hand And never let go Never let go Take my hand And never let go Side by side We walk an open road Unbreakable With hope in our hearts Step by step We’ll make a new start Let’s be soldiers of love soldiers of love soldiers of love For life Take my hand And never let go Never let go And let’s be soldiers of love
