Despite her young age of only 18 years, Natália Kelly, can already look back at more than ten years of professional experience as a singer and pianist.

Shine might be Natália Kelly‘s debut single, but it would nonetheless be hard to describe her as a newcomer: The 18-year-old from Lower Austria, who has US American and Brazilian roots, has been adding to her stage experience for the past ten years, thanks to a wide range of performances, and by participating in numerous music competitions.
Quite a few juries have been impressed by Natália Kelly’s abilities as both pianist and singer. This early success is not solely due to her unique voice: her artless and self-confident flair have also given Natália Kelly’s music an individuality that juggles playfully with contrasting elements from pop and R'n'B.
Produced by Austrian hit factory songwriter Alexander Kahr, Shine will be Natália Kelly’s musical business card, bringing together her national experiences with international elements, and thus reaching out to her promising future. She will be releasing her debut album right in time for the Eurovision Song Contest.
Talking about her participation in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, Natália says: „It is an honour and a great pleasure to be able to represent Austria. An international competition like the Eurovision Song Contest is an amazing opportunity for an artist to gather important musical experience and to develop further on a personal level.“

Lyrics

English (Original)

Shine When hurt is all you’re feeling You’re heart is slowly bleeding There’re only memories to hold on to When you almost stopped believing Cold, alone and freezing You think you’re lost but don’t know where to go Look up to the starlit sky Reignite the fire You will shine, shine And fight the shadows in the sky You will shine I see the light in your eyes You will shine, shine And fight the shadows in the sky Oh you will fly up high The light is in your eyes Trust me you will shine Time is always healing And answers are revealing Sometimes they’re simply right before your eyes But when you’re down here kneeling There is no chance to see it You can when all these dark clouds disappear Look up to the starlit sky Reignite the fire You will shine, shine And fight the shadows in the sky You will shine I see the light in your eyes You will shine, shine And fight the shadows in the sky Oh you will fly up high The light is in your eyes Trust me you will shine Still alive and breathing – 5x You will shine, shine And fight the shadows in the sky You will shine I see the light in your eyes You will shine, shine And fight the shadows in the sky Oh you will fly up high

French

Quand la blessure est tout ce que tu sens Ton coeur est lentement en train de saigner Ce ne sont que les souvenirs auxquels tu peux te raccrocher Lorsque tu as presque cessé d’y croire Froid, seul et gelé Tu te sens perdu et tu ne sais pas quoi faire Regarde vers le ciel étoilé Rallume le feu Tu vas briller, briller Et combattre les ténèbres dans le ciel Tu vas briller Je vois la lumière dans tes yeux Tu vas briller, briller Et combattre les ténèbres dans le ciel Oh tu vas voler La lumière est dans tes yeux Crois-moi, tu vas rayonner Le temps guérit toujours les douleurs Et les réponses sont révélatrices Parfois, elles sont tout simplement juste devant tes yeux Mais quand t’es à genoux Il n‘y a aucune chance de les voir Jusqu´á ce que tous ces nuages sombres disparaissent Regarde vers le ciel étoilé Rallume le feu Tu vas briller, briller Et combattre les ténèbres dans le ciel Tu vas briller Je vois la lumière dans tes yeux Tu vas briller, briller Et combattre les ténèbres dans le ciel Oh tu vas voler La lumière est dans tes yeux Crois-moi, tu vas rayonner Encore vivant et respirant 5x Tu vas briller, briller Et combattre les ténèbres dans le ciel Tu vas briller Je vois la lumière dans tes yeux Tu vas briller, briller Et combattre les ténèbres dans le ciel Oh tu vas voler La lumière est dans tes yeux Crois-moi, tu vas rayonner
