Few days to go for the national final in Georgia. Today we had time to talk to Tornike Kipiani who will participate with the entry “You are my sunshine”
First of all thank you for your time talking to us. How are you ? Can you introduce yourself ? What can you tell us about yourself?
Hello! My name is Tornike Kipiani. I’m fine and hope you are so too… ☺Well I am 29 years old and I live in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. In 2014, I have won the X-Factor in Georgia. Currently I am busy with the rehearsals for the upcoming national final here in Georgia.
Your song that you will be presenting for the national final in Georgia is “You are my Sunshine”. What can you tell us about the song?
Well, I made a mixture of electronic and rock music but the song also Asian and American singing techniques so that I managed to give the song a different flavour. Through this I wanted to pass on the message that,we are nothing without each other and everything together.
What was the inspiration for the song, and did you write it specifically for the national final in Georgia and Eurovision?
Actually I wrote this song 2 years ago for Eurovision , but at that time, I’ve decided to keep it on the shelf until it was the right time, and this year I felt it’s the right time to do this and I’ve submitted the song in our national finals.
It’s hard to say what was the inspiration , it’s just life. I think it comes natural to me since I am a musician and a composer.
What is your impression of the Eurovision Song Contest in general? Do you watch it every year?
I think, it is one of the greatest competition in the world. And it will be big challenge and step through success for me. I’ve watched Eurovision every year and I think European people will love my song.
Apart from the Eurovision Song Contest , where would you dream to do a performance?
My biggest dream is to perform in Tomorrowland.
Has being on tv made you more self-conscious?
Not at all 🙂
What ís the best bit of advice you have ever been given?
I believe that everyone should trust and believe in love.
What’s your biggest fear?
I don’t have any fears
What is a typical day like for you?
For me there is no typical day, cause every day is another , that’s the great creature of nature.
