Ana Soklič to perform new version of “Amen” at Eurovision 2021
Speaking to local media at a press conference organised by broadcaster RTVSLO, Ana revealed that she will be performing a slightly different version of “Amen” in Rotterdam next month. “A fragment has been added to the song, and a piece of this gospel work, which was just an addition to the recording, we then decided to place it in the song itself, in the performance itself, which will also be presented in Rotterdam, ” she says.
At the press conference, it was also confirmed that the “Voda” songstress will be joined on stage by the vocalist Karin Zemljič. This will be Karin’s fourth time at Eurovision — she has previously lent her voice to Maraaya, ManuElla and Lea Sirk.
