In 2011 a beautiful Italian singer of Eritrean descent took the stage in the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany, representing the microstate of San Marino at Eurovision.
Senit didn’t make it to the final with her sweet love song “Stand By”, finishing sixteenth out of nineteen countries with just 34 points. But her career certainly didn’t stop there.
She has collected important experiences since then. Browsing YouTube we discover that she’s released tons of singles, performed in the prestigious Arena di Verona, as well as other Italian festivals, and become something of a club maven. If there’s a stage, our queen will sing and turn heads in the process.
Recently she’s turned her attention to TV. Senhit was among the hundred judges on the giant wall of the talent show “All Together Now” on Canale 5. (You may remember that the winner of the first British version was Eurovision 2019 act Michael Rice).
Nine years have passed and our ice-eyed curly girl has really stepped up her game. So maybe it’s time for her to return to Eurovision? San Marino RTV, she’s been stood up too long, so let’s do this!
Why Senhit should sing at Eurovision 2020
There are several reasons why choosing Senhit Zadik Zadik would be a wonderful idea. Since 2011 she’s decided to use her first name as her stage name, acquiring an “H”, thereby putting the previously missing hit in Senhit!
Take a listen to her recent tracks. The ballads are a distant memory — now she is ready to shake Europe with rhythm.
Our girl is FREAKY FREAKY. She knows how to perform and her videos are just wow!
In her latest single “HEART ACHE”, the English version of the song “Dark Room“, Senhit is serving Milan Fashion Week with her looks. She’s as elegant and mysterious as Cleopatra. We can’t sit in ‘da Nile: her class is second to none.
Luca Tommassini, one of the most influential Italian choreographers and artistic directors, directed the video. She could take him with her to the Netherlands to give her staging that is as explosive as it gets.
Italian or English? Senhit is strong in both languages.
Senhit is all about the ESC 2020 theme #OpenUp. From Bologna, where she was born, to Hamburg, Rome, New York and London, other cities where she has lived, Senhit builds bridges and opens up to the world.
To shoot the video for “Un bel niente”, she took her talent to Berlin. San Marino has the right star to shine in Rotterdam, there’s no room for na na na, we say yay yay yay!
