Kerrie-Anne is a former teacher who used to live in Dubai and is now competing in Eurovision: You Decide 2019 with the uptempo dance anthem ”Sweet Lies”.
Recently Kerrie-Anne met our William Lee Adams and told him about her song:
”My song is about blissful ignorance. It is about not wanting to know the things that are wrong with your relationship, just wanting to stay in the dark because you love that person so much. You don’t want it to end.”
Kerrie-Anne says the song can be about anything, not just a relationship.
”You just, you love something so much that you don’t want to know the truth, whether it is an outfit. You know you love that green jacket but the truth is…Do you know what I mean? It is a song that a lot people can relate to and it can be about relationships or anything really.” she says.
The artist becomes emotional as she reveals having experienced blissful ignorance herself.
”I have. Yes, I don’t want to talk about it though, cause I don’t want to cry. But yeah, I think it is something I think everybody has experienced at some point in their life.”
”I need to be able to feel it”
Kerrie-Anne says the song wasn’t chosen by her but she got the chance to change it into her style:
”The song was assigned to me but I was told that I can put my own spin on it which is the most important thing for me because if it’s a song that someone else has written, I need to be able to feel it. I need to be able to put my own spin on it and I think if the team didn’t give me that room to be so creative, I would have had to turn it down but luckily they’ve said do what you want.”
She has given the song a sensual feel, which is an important theme to her:
”With all of my songs, with all of my performances, sensuality is a big part of it. I’m a huge advocate in just celebrating sexuality, celebrating love and I think that’s what this song helps me to do.”
Kerrie-Anne also hints that we might see few dance moves in her upcoming performance:
”There’s going to be couple of pops and couple of locks. But we’ll just have to wait and see if there’s going to be full-on performance. It’s going to be fabulous.”
