Official #JoinUs song launched, penned by Emmelie25 February 2014 at 14:11 CET
Emmelie de Forest, the ruling champion of the Eurovision Song Contest, is the artist behind the song Rainmaker.
"It is about a tribe joining together to call upon the rainmaker to make their land blossom again. But on a more general level the rainmaker can be anything or anyone – it is about coming together and helping each other out," Emmelie explains.
The song will be performed during the Final on the 10th of May in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Living her dream
But she’s not only been busy with this, but has been enjoying success after her victory last year.
"I’ve been performing my music around Europe, released my debut album and written a lot of new songs – to be honest, I’m living my dream!" Emmelie adds.
Her winning song Only Teardrops won the hearts of Europe last May and went on to become a number one hit in 12 countries in Europe. During the last year, Emmelie has been performing all over Europe, amongst others in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Malta, Albania, Belarus and Ukraine.
Her victory in Malmö brought the Danish broadcaster, DR, the right to host the contest in Denmark. A challenge they took up and thus the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will take place on the 6th, 8th and 10th of May in Copenhagen.
