She’s a mother, a teacher, and a winner of The Voice of Greece. But now Maria Elena Kyriakou is also a Eurovision 2015 contender! The Greek diva, who really knows how to honour the birthplace of drama, recently visited the UK for the London Eurovision Party. Before the show we caught up with the “One Last Breath” singer and discovered a calm but confident contestant.
She appeared relaxed but enthused, and shared her feelings about her Eurovision experience so far. Maria Elena appears to believe in herself. We ask, “Who did you think would win the Greek national selection?” and she speaks the truth.
The MEK has strength and courage, and seems sure that her lovely ballad will finish higher than last year’s “Rise Up”. Her children won’t be able to join her in Vienna, but she assures us that she’ll contact them on a regular basis. She’s a really down-to-earth person, y’all.
