Monika Kuszyńska's song In The Name Of Love is her own story that she brings to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna. It is full of courage, decisiveness and willingness to change life for better, but also pain of the past and "fear about tomorrow". The car accident that changed Monika’s whole life, makes the singer look back, but her song In The Name Of Love gives a promise for future - "It’s gonna be better!" Watch Monika’s interview and find out more about this charming, strong and talented woman.
I think that every person who goes there and participates in the contest like that thinks and dreams of the winning. It’s obvious. But for me the purpose is much more important. I want to show people that even if you sometimes feel bad, weak, unworthy or different, you always can change your life and follow your dreams. And it is worth of doing it. And this is my message I want to share with people.
My song In The Name Of Love was created and dedicated to this contest. We didn’t actually think how to do it to please someone, let’s say. We create the songs in the same way; we are me and my husband Kuba Raczyński, who is a composer of the song. We just based ourselves on our feelings, and what is inside. The motto of Eurovision “Building Bridges” was inspiring to me. We can build the bridge beyond the fear because the fear is something that blocks us most. And we can just do it with love.
Of course singing while sitting is completely different. But I think if you really love to do something and if you really want to do it, you’ll find a way, your unique way to cope with that. So did I. And by now I don’t care if I stand or sit. It’s my music, my feelings and my audience.
