ERT broadcaster has finally confirmed that Greek-Canadian singer Katerina Duska will be flying the Greek flag in Tel Aviv, Israel this May at the 2019 Eurovision contest.
Dimitrios Papadimitriou, President of ERT’s Eurovision committee selection contacted Duska’s record company and Katerine immediately accepted.
Katerine's song for Eurovision has already been recorded in a studio in London. It has not been revealed yet but is expected to be released in the coming weeks. The song will be in English and is written by Katerine herself together with Leon of Athens.
ERT also revealed that Yorgos Kapoutzidis and Maria Kozakou return as Eurovision commentators. Last year, they were replaced by Alexandros Lizardos and Dafni Skalioni.
Katerine Duska is a Greek singer who was born in Montreal, Canada. Her parents lived there until they moved to Greece when Katerine was a teenager. She was first influenced by classical music but later decided to work with more modern sounds, however before music took over too much, she studied law in Athens.
Back in 2013, Duska released her first single One In A Million, which became a great hit in Greece. Two years later, she recorded her first album “Embodiment”. Katerine writes music and lyrics herself, but it is yet unknown if she has also be involved in penning this year’s Greek entry.
Good luck Katerine!
