Olivia Wieczorek will represent Poland in the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song Nie zapomnij.
Olivia was born on 28th October 2002 and began singing at the age of five when she took part in a Christmas singing competition and won. Following this she competed in various contests, achieving good results. Olivia realised that music and singing were her biggest passions and her family encouraged her to pursue her dreams.
Olivia's biggest breakthrough came when she won a popular talent show for children in Poland where she met Piotr Rubik, a famous Polish composer, producer and musician. He was so amazed by her unique talent that he decided to invite Olivia to perform in his concerts as a soloist. Olivia went on to perform at many concerts in Poland and around the world with a symphony orchestra and choir, often being accompanied by more than 110 musicians on stage. In 2016 she performed on World youth Day in front of an audience of 100,000. Before the Junior Eurovision Song Contest Olivia will tour the USA and Canada performing at 10 concerts with Piotr Rubik.
Despite her success, Olivia is modest and down to earth. She also continues to participate in charity concerts and keeps in touch with her growing group of fans via her social media accounts. Olivia is looking forward to the experience of performing at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and is honoured to be representing her country.
Olivia's song for Junior Eurovision is called Nie zapomnij (Don’t forget), composed by Piotr Rubik with lyrics by famous Polish music producer, rapper Dominik "Doniu" Grabowski. It has a very straightforward and important message; in the age of the internet, smartphones and computers ,we must not forget about what’s really important: family, love, being close to each other. Simply said - to remain human. Olivia dedicates her Junior Eurovision performance to her mum.
