Aminata has been bitten by the Eurovision bug. Not satisfied with competing in Eurovision 2015, giving Latvia one of their best Eurovision results ever with song ‘Love Injected’, the singer returned to Eurovision in 2016 as a song writer, penning the Latvian entry again with song ‘Heartbeat’ sang this time by Justs. In 2017 Aminata has announced that she will enter a song to the Latvian Eurovision selection show Supernova and today has announced plans that she also wishes to submit a song for the Lithuanian selection show Eurovizjios.
Aminata will team up with singer Aiste Pilvelyte to submit an entry for the Lithuanian selection show. Aiste is no stranger to Eurovision either having competed in Eurovizijos, making it to last year’s final and finishing fifth with song ‘You Bet’ and on four other occasions between 2006-2010.
As well as submitting songs for both the Lithuanian and Latvian national final, Aminata has also been busy competing in the Russian version of the Voice where she was mentored by fellow Eurovision alum Polina Gagarina and she has also released album ‘Red Moon’ this year.
We look forward to hearing what Aminata has to offer at Eurovision 2017, and perhaps she can be the Latvian representative for the third year running!
