Bulgaria’s Eurovision 2020 singer VICTORIA isn’t just a talented singer and songwriter. She’s also an animal lover who is doing good this Christmas season by raising awareness about stray cats and dogs in need of a home.
Her Christmas cover song “Come Out And Play” was recorded in support of organizations in Bulgaria that find home for stray dogs and cats and to inspire more people to adopt homeless animals.
The video stars several animals who have moved from the streets into the hearts (and homes) of their human companions. They gather around a cozy scene singing an acoustic cover as people pet their furry friends. `the video ends with the written message, “Come out and save a life.”
“I have five dogs, two rabbits and one parrot,” VICTORIA says in a statement sent to wiwibloggs.
“All my dogs have been adopted and I love them so much! Animal adoption is a cause really close to my heart and with this project I want to raise awareness in Bulgaria about the amazing people who give their time to help homeless dogs and cats find their new home.”
Among the organisations that are benefitting from VICTORIA’s work is Bulgarian NGO Animal Rescue Sofia.
Her team explains their impact: “With the help of thousands of people through private donations they created their own shelter, where 200 animals find treatment and care 365 days in a year. The organization finds homes for 70 dogs every month. One of VICTORIA’s five dogs is adopted from the Animal Rescue shelter.”
Ligna Studios and Four Elementz produced the project. The video was directed by Victoria Karakoleva and filmed by Rosen Savkov.
