You are one of the participants of DMGP 2016. How did it all begin?
I moved from the Faroe Islands to Denmark in 2012 where I competed in the danish X factor. I got some good contacts through X factor and two months ago I got a call if I would like to try out for the song "Who needs a Heart".
Photo: Jesper Bang-p Thortzen“Who needs a heart” is the title of your song, what’s the story behind it?
The story behind the song is about how it feels after a bad break-up, which I think a lot of people can relate to. Also I think the song is about going for your dreams, instead of just dreaming and doing nothing about it, where the lyrics says "Im gonna dream wide awake"
Powerful, Touching, Catchy, Unique
