Reprezentanta Ungariei la Eurovisionul din acest an, Wolf Kati, se numara deja printre cele mai bine cotate si cele mai asteptate aparitii de la Dusseldorf.What about my dreams“, vorbeste despre visele pe care inca ne permitem sa le avem in lumea in care traim.
Cu un nume ce inspira putere, o piesa la fel de puternica si o voce speciala, Wolf Kati spera sa aduca in acest an, dupa o pauza de ceva timp in care Ungaria nu a mai participat la Eurovision, trofeul acestui concurs in tara sa natala.
Nu puteam sa nu o remarcam pe Kati si sa nu ii luam un interviu, in exclusivitate pentru Star Gossip. Iata ce ne-a declarat:

1. For those who do not know you, tell us more about the artist and the woman Wolf Kati.

Music has been my life since my childhood. I’m a mother and a singer at the same time. I couldn’t live without being the one or the other. I think that my way of singing tells a lot about me. People love those who sing naturally. I consider myself as a natural person without any artificial mannerism.

2. We know that you have taken part in the Hungarian version of the show X Factor. Do you think that this kind of musical competitions can really represent a breakthrough for a future artist nowadays?

Absolutely, the participants of this show are the best examples. I have been singing for years but I could only reach the level of popularity I always dreamt of after the show. To perform in the most viewed programmes on the most viewed tv channels cannot be compared to anything.

3. Who or what had the most influence on you on deciding to take part in this year’s Eurovision?

The feedback from my audience and my fans.

4. Why did you choose to present your song in both hungarian and english? Do you consider having a greater impact on public if you sing in English?

My song could reach a lot more people if I sing it English but still I didn’t want to miss to have at least a little part of it kept in my mother tongue. At the part where I sing in Hungarian, the backing music fades out which accentuates the verse in Hungarian.

5. The English version of the Hungarian representative song is What about my dream. Tell us about your biggest dream throughout years.

I won’t tell you until it becomes true! 🙂

6. Have you listened to the other countries’ songs? Which is your favourite and of which are you most afraid of?

Although I am a big fan of Eurovision it will be the first year when I won’t listen to any Eurovision songs before the contest. It’s my superstition, because I want to build my opinion based on what I hear live on stage in Düsseldorf. Just as my song will of course not sound exactly the way it does in the video. The contest is all about the performance in the very moment you go on stage. I’m sure that everyone will give their best just like in the previous years.

7. How will your show on the Düsseldorf stage look like?

I will focus on singing because in my opinion you can only amaze the audience if the singing comes from the heart. Of course I will have dancers and vocalists on stage but let it be a surprise how our show will look like.

8. What advice would you give to someone who wants to participate next year in Eurovision?

Well, I think I will be able to give advice upon my personal experiences when I returned home from the song contest. 🙂

9. Share a message with our readers and all your Romanian fans!

Thanks a lot for your good thoughts and keep believing in your dreams! Thank you for how well you have received me durring my staying in Romania! You have a beautiful country and a lot of beautiful people fur sure!

Iata si traducerea in romana a interviului:

1. Pentru cei ce nu te cunosc, spune-ne mai multe despre artista si femeia Wolf Kati.

Muzica a fost viata mea inca din copilarie. Sunt mama si cantareata in acelasi timp. Nu as putea trai fara una din aceste ipostaze din viata mea. Cred ca modul meu de a canta spune multe despre mine ca persoana. Oamenii ii indragesc pe cei ce canta natural. Ma consider o persoana naturala fara alte “artificii”.

2. Stim ca ai luat parte la versiunea ungureasca a show-ului X Factor. Consideri ca acest tip de concursuri pot reprezenta un adevarat start pentru un artist debutant in ziua de astazi?

Absolut. Participantii din cadrul acestui show sunt cel mai bun exemplu. Cant de ani buni, insa nu am putut atinge nivelul de popularitate dorit dintotdeauna decat dupa acest show. Sa canti in cadrul celui mai urmarit program la cel mai urmarit post tv, nu poate fi comparat cu nimic altceva.

3. Ce sau cine a avut cea mai mare influenta asupra ta in privinta participarii la Eurovisionul din acest an?

Feddback-ul din partea publicului si fanilor mei.

4. De ce ai decis sa prezinti piesa ta in engleza si maghiara? Consideri ca ai un mai mare impact asupra publicului cantand in engleza?

Piesa mea poate atinge mai multi oameni fiind interpretata in engleza, insa nu vreau sa ratez sansa de a avea o parte din ea, macar, in limba mea materna. Partea pe care o cant in maghiara, muzica de backing se estompeaza, ceea ce accentueaza mai bine versurile in maghiara.

5. Varianta in engleza a piesei poarta titlul “What about my dream”. Care a fost cel mai mare vis al tau de-a lungul anilor?

Nu pot sa vi-l spun decat atunci cand se va implini!:)

6. Ai ascultat piesele celorlalte tari participante? Care din ele iti place cel mai mult si de care iti e teama?

Desi sunt mare fana a Eurovisionului, acesta este primul an in care nu voi asculta nici o piesa inainte de concurs. Este superstitia mea, pentru ca vreau sa imi formez propria parere pe baza a ceea ce voi asculta la Dusseldorf. Asa cum piesa mea, fireste, nu va suna ca in videoclip. Eurovisionul se bazeaza strict pe prestatia scenica. Sunt convinsa ca toti vor da tot ce au mai bun, la fel ca in anii precedenti.

7. Cum va arata show-ul tau pe scena de la Dusseldorf?

Ma voi concentra asupra interpretarii, pentru ca, in opinia mea, poti surprinde publicul doar daca canti cu tot sufletul. Desigur ca voi avea dansatori si backing vocals insa prefer ca show-ul total sa ramana o surpriza.

8. Ce sfat ai da unui viitor participant la Eurovision?

Cred ca voi putea da acest sfat, bazandu-ma pe experienta mea personala dupa ce ma voi intoarce acasa de la Dussedorf.

9. Lasa un mesaj pentru toti cititorii nostri si toti sustinatorii tai din Romania!

Multumesc mult pentru gandurile voastre de bine si continuati sa credeti in visele voastre!Multumesc pentru primirea calduroasa de care am avut parte in decursul sederii mele in Romania! Aveti o tara frumoasa cu oameni minunati!

We thank you Wolf Kati, for sharing with us this interview and we keep our fingers crossed for you on 12 May!
