Call Green Peace, donate some money to the World Wildlife Fund, and plant some trees while you’re at it — Sofia Rol is headed to Junior Eurovision 2016.
The Ukrainian teenager won Ukraine’s national selection on Saturday with “Planet Craves for Love”, a song about saving the earth and each other.
“The light is mesmerizing don’t let it go,” she says in the song, which includes an English-language verse at the end. “I know my way, I’ll give it all I got and more.”
Built around the theme of nature, her performance saw her transform into a wood nymph, wearing an earth tone dress, a leafy headpiece and vines around her body.
Her backing dancers were cut from a similar cloth, wearing naturalistic body suits that smacked of trees, sand and animals.
Last year Ukraine’s Anna Trincher wowed us at Junior Eurovision with her own ode to the environment “Pochny Z Sebe“.
“People are cutting the trees because they want to build a house,” she told us in Malta.
“It’s so sad. I want people to change their attitude towards nature.”
And that theme now continues with Sofia — but will it be able to slay on stage in Valletta?
