Earlier this week, the Wiwi Jury reviewed Lena Stamenkovic‘s Junior Eurovision 2015 entry, “Lenina Pesma“. We didn’t 100% know what she was saying, but we still sang her praises from here to the heavens. Now the 11-year-old from Serbia has released “Lena’s Song” — the English version of her Balkan ballad — and we are totally feeling her message. It’s “Heal the World” for a new generation.
Lena sings of a world ripping at its seams and the need for people and nations to come together. “I really need you to listen,” she says. “Is this the world that we live in, if children suffer in silence, are we supposed just to give in?” It’s a timely message in light of Europe’s ongoing refugee crisis.
