Working hard since her participation at Eurovision: You Decide
Since her participation at the British National Final in 2018, RAYA has been a backing vocalist for a few productions as well as working with artists such as Cyantific, as well as Italian composer Giorgio Moroder, who is dubbed as the “Father of Disco” where she joined as one of the vocalists for his European tour in 2019.
In addition to this, she also released her debut single “Pollyanna”, which was featured in BBC Introducing earlier this year.
Raya’s Eurovision Journey
In 2018, RAYA was one of the contenders, in BBC’s Eurovision: You Decide, which was the national selection to find UK’s Eurovision representative. She participated in the competition with the song “Crazy” which was written by Emil Rosendal Lei, Greta Salóme Stefánsdóttir, and Samir Salah Elshafie.
On behalf of the “THAT Eurovision Site” team, we would like to congratulate RAYA on landing this opportunity, and we cannot wait to see the show!
