The veil has been lifted off the Belgian Eurovision 2018 entry by young SENNEK: A matter of time!
From being the first confirmed artist for Eurovision 2018 back in September to one of the final acts to reveal their entry: SENNEK, stage name of upcoming artist Laura Groeseneken, was all set to present her song for Lisbon in the radio show De Grote Peter Van De Veire Ochtendshow, hosted by Peter van de Veire, on Tuesday morning 6 March.
However, her song came up online earlier, emerging for the world to enjoy.
Her entry is titled A matter of time, a song with a mysterious note that fits SENNEK’s appearant fragile, yet powerfully warm, personality and voice. The song is reminiscent of James Bond-soundtracks and tells how people shape their own destiny, against all odds. Eventually, all will fall in place, it’s just a matter of time.
SENNEK is excited about her entry and will hopefully do her country proud on the Lisbon stage.
Enjoy the music video of A matter of time, released on the official Eurovision.tv YouTube channel!
Here are SENNEK’s first words regarding her Eurovision song and participation:
What an amazing feeling to be doing this with my own song. It’s been a fantastic experience to be able to collaborate with Alex and Maxime, two very talented artists. To get to share ideas and opinions until we finally managed to come up with a composition that everyone is proud of. The song fits me like a glove: the melancholy feeling, the vocals, the contrast between dark and light… And I think a song’s message is so important for its potential to reach people.
SENNEK will perform A matter of time in the 1st half of the dirst semi-final on 8 May.
Best of luck to SENNEK and Belgium at Eurovision 2018!
