After the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, San Marino’s Eurovision 2011, 2020 and 2021 representative launched her #FreakyTripToRotterdam where she releases a cover of a famous Eurovision Song every Month. After the fabulous covers of Theo’s Cheesecake (Belarus 2014) and Sertab Erener’s Everyway That I Can (Turkey 2003), Senhit has now released her cover of Teach In’s Ding-A-Dong (The Netherlands 1975).
In her video Senhit honours Dragqueens, which accompany her in the video and transform into different superheroes. Senhit Transforms into Wonder Sista, a brave heroine ready to conquer the stage. Ultimately the cover is a call for everyone to be themselves, and not to be afraid of what others could think. The Video also ends with a quote from Patrick Kenzie: ‘I always believed it was the things you don’t choose that makes you who you are.’
For Eurovision 2020 Senhit launched a digital battle between two songs, Obsessed and Freaky, which was ultimately won by Freaky. Senhit was due to sing it in Rotterdam before the contest got cancelled. You can watch Andy’s reaction to Senhit’s song Freaky!
