Well the rehearsals in Sofia get started today and Aimee Banks will make history as being the first Irish contestant to participate in the competition – so remember the date as I’m sure it will be a quiz question some day soon! She will perform in position #7 on Saturday November 21st.
Aimee is singing the enchanting song ‘Réalta na Mara’ or ‘Star Of The Sea’. The song is performed in Gaelic and many people have said that they love to hear the song in English too so they can share her emotion on stage when performing.
Fear not! Ask and you shall receive! Aimee has recorded an English version of the song just for you and we have it here! Aimee would like to dedicate the song to her Grandmother who passed away earlier this year and who was Aimee’s biggest supporter.
So we give you ‘Star of The Sea’
Aimee has her first Rehearsal today along with half of the contestants. You can follow all of the coverage LIVE here on out ROLLING BLOG
