Germany’s 2017 Eurovision representative Levina recently gave an interview in which she talks about Eurovision, her current life, and her musical future.
In an interview with Eurovision.de, Levina, who represented Germany at Eurovision 2017 with her song Perfect life, speaks about the Eurovision Song Contest and her career.
Work and study
Levina starts off on a very happy note, as she recently starred as the opening act for German star Johannes Oerding:
Ah, that was beautiful, that really made me very happy – and it even was on my old home soil in Saxony.
Levina currently lives in London, where she is studying Music Industry Management & Artist Development, besides her musical career. How is she doing?:
I’m very well, thank you for asking. I’m making a lot of music in London, and in January I’ll start getting my Master ready. I’m not entirely sure about the title of the thesis yet, but it’s very well possible that I’ll make the experiences I gathered at the ESC the systematic theme.
I am studying what’s going on behind the scenes and what questions are relevant there.
Looking back on Eurovision
Despite an enthralling performance on the stage in Kyiv, Levina unfortunately reached a 25th place out of 26 contestants in the Grand Final. Is she disappointed about this?
No, and there was, and is, no reason for that. The ESC incited me, one always needs new impulses to motivate oneself. The ESC motivated me anew.
Club Tour 2018 and future plans
Levina is planning to go on a club tour in 2018, performing at smaller, intimate venues. She will perform songs from her album Unexpected and new material, as she is currently working on musical compositions.
What is Levina’s motivation now?
I would like to share my music with even more people, I want to feel how the people react to my songs. It always goes on.
Levina (born Isabella Levina Lueen, Bonn, 1991) is a German singer-songwriter and television host.
