San Marino: Valentina returns.. and she's not alone!

Valentina Monetta just can't get enough of the Eurovision Song Contest. Not happy the representing San Marino for three years in a row, she's back in 2017! Valentina will perform Spirit of the Night in Kyiv with Jimmie Wilson. The song was written by the one and only Ralph Siegel. 

Jazz singer Valentina was born in San Marino and is to date, the only artist from San Marino to qualify for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest. She represented San Marino in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and she's back again in 2017! Valentina currently performs with her band My Funky Valentine and also collaborates with a band called Live Tropical Fish.

Jimmie Wilson is a singer and songwriter, born in Detroit, Michigan. He came to Europe as the star of Michael Jackson’s musical Sisterella and now lives in Germany. In 2010, he starred as President Obama in the musical Hope. This year he joins legendary producer Ralph Siegel and Valentina Monetta as part of team San Marino. Jimmie's life’s motto is "life is a journey – enjoy the ride". Jimmie’s new album So Damn Beautiful is available online.
