Queensland songbird and Australia’s next Eurovision Song Contest entrant Dami Im has revealed the song she’ll be performing: a midtempo power ballad titled “Sound of Silence”.
“The first time I heard ‘Sound of Silence’ I knew it was the perfect song for me to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest,” the former X-Factor champ recalled.
“There are many ways to interpret the meaning around a song, but one theme that I relate to in ‘Sound of Silence’ is that of disconnection and being away from the people in my life that I love.
“We live in a world where it is easy to be connected every minute of the day but along with this connection you can feel alone and isolated.
“I can’t wait to perform it live in Stockholm and connect with a whole new audience.”
Earlier this month, 2014 Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst announced Dami would represent us at this year’s Eurovision, to be held in Stockholm, Sweden in May.
