“Breathe is originally dedicated to the most important person in my life who lost her battle against Covid…
A woman who made me who I am today and gave me all the talents I possess. This is an homage to all the victims worldwide and their families who went through HELL when their dearest fought for breath, and even today, there are still a lot of them… I can hear you, I can feel you, and I stand by you with this song! They could have lived longer, and now they are numbers, statistics 😔 We should not forget them…
Mom, I’m heartbroken that you couldn’t breathe, but I hope you will hear me and that “our souls will meet again” 🖤

Montenegro in Eurovision
Montenegro entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 2007. Previously the country entered the Eurovision Song Contest as part of Yugoslavia and as part of Serbia&Montenegro. Montenegro qualified for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 2014 and repeated this success in 2015 where the country also scored its best ever placing (13th place.)
Montenegro last participated in 2019, placing 16th in the first semi-final with D mol’s ‘Heaven’. Montenegro withdrew in 2020 due to financial issues at the broadcaster, but will be back this year and hopefully stronger than ever!
