Who is Kejsi Tola?
Kejsi Tola has won a lot of competitions in spite of her young age. Her career started already when she was eleven, winning the Young Voices of Albanian Festival Song Contest. “I love singing and this is very important for me. Music gives me an inner strength, which I sometimes don’t show up in my daily life, but that comes out when on stage.” That's what she said before this year's Eurovision Song Contest.
A fan from France loved Kejsi's song: "I like this song very much. Kejsi has a great voice and a beatiful song. Go Albania! My vote will go for you." "Kejsi you're absolutely great and you have an amazing song. You're going to shine in Moscow and you're going to make us proud," her Albanian supporter said.
And she did make Albania proud - collected 48 points and finished seventeenth in the Final of Europe's favourite TV-show with Carry Me In Your Dreams. Check out who exactly is Kejsi Tola by clicking on her Artist Profile.
