We are thrilled to announce that the first act confirmed for this year’s London Eurovision Party is Germany’s Levina!
25-year-old Isabella “Levina” Lueen was born in Bonn. Already at the age of nine, she started her classical vocal education at the city music school in Chemnitz. Soon, she performed in several children’s musicals, carried off the first prize at Germany’s acclaimed regional, federal, and national music competition for children and adolescents “Jugend musiziert”, received an educational grant, and started writing her own songs at the age of twelve. After garnering the first prize at the German Federal Agency for Civic Education student contest, her desired career was clear: “I’m going to be a singer!” Determined to reach her goal, she studied vocals and songwriting at the London Tech Music School, won the award for “Best Vocal Performer”, and secured the highest award in the competition of the university music league 2012 with her band “Miss Terry Blue”, while studying at King’s College in London. Levina lives in Berlin and London.
Her winning song “Perfect Life” was written by a US songwriting team led by ‘hit machine’ Lindy Robbins. The multi-platinum-awarded American has been writing chart hits since 1998 including songs for stars like Jason Derulo, David Guetta, Olly Murs, and Demi Lovato. Already in her early days as a songwriter, Robbins provided successes for Anastacia, the Backstreet Boys, Faith Hill, and Shaggy.
We look forward to hearing her perform the song LIVE at the Cafe De Paris on Sunday 2nd April. Stay tuned to escXtra.com and www.londoneurovision.com for more artist announcements!
