Marea Britanie a fost dintotdeauna o forta, din toate punctele de vedere, insa, in primul rand, pe plan artistic.
In acest an, la Eurovision, Surie va canta la Lisabona despre optimismul si forta de a lupta impotriva oricaror furtuni pentru ca niciuna din ele nu este permanenta in viata noastra. “Storm” va aduce, de asemenea, si un sound fresh si joyful ce completeaza perfect mesajul piesei.

United Kingdom has always been a force, in all respects, but first of all, artistically.
This year, at Eurovision, Surie will sing in Lisbon about optimism and the power to fight against any storms because none of them is permanent in our lives. “Storm” will also bring a fresh and joyful sound that perfectly complements the message of the song.

Hello, SuRie and thanks for sharing with us this interview! First, tell us what feelings gives you your immediate future participation to this year’s Eurovision? / Buna, Surie, si multumim pentru acest interviu. Mai intai, spune-ne ce sentimente iti da participarea ta din viitorul apropiat la Eurovisionul din acest an?

Hi! Thanks for having me! I’m so excited to participate this year, I really can’t wait to get to Lisbon. It’s going to be another amazing Eurovision Song Contest and it’s a real honour to be a part of it./ Buna! Multumesc pentru propunerea voastra! Sunt foarte incantata sa particip in acest an la Eurovision, de abia astept sa ajung la Lisabona. Va fi un alt an impresionant al acestei competitii si este o reala onoare sa fac parte din acest fenomen.

Tell us a bit about the story and the the message of your song and whether do you consider to find yourself in it. / Spune-ne mai multe despre povestea si mesajul piesei tale si cat de mult te regasesti in ea.

Storm has a really hopeful message that I think we all need to hear sometimes. The lyrics ‘Storms don’t last forever’ can remind us that our problems won’t last forever and, if we all unite, we can get through them together. It also has lovely family connections in the verses, talking to siblings and parents, and that’s very special to me as I’m very fortunate to have a really supportive, loving family./ Storm are un mesaj cu adevarat plin de speranta, pe care cred ca trebuie sa-l ascultam cu totii uneori. Versurile “Furtunile nu dureaza pentru totdeauna” ne pot reaminti ca problemele noastre nu vor dura pentru totdeauna si, daca suntem uniti, le putem depasi impreuna. De asemenea, versurile se raporteaza la familie, vorbeste despre fratii si parintii nostri, si acest lucru este foarte special pentru mine, deoarece sunt foarte norocoasa sa am o familie ce ma sustine si ma iubeste cu adevarat.

This is your third time participation to Eurovision. What have you personally learnt from the experience within this competition? / Aceasta este a treia ta participare la Eurovision. Ce ai invatat pe plan personal din intreaga experienta in cadrul acestei competitii?

I was so lucky to work with the Belgian artists, Loic Nottet and Blanche and I have the fondest memories of our time together. There is nothing in the world like Eurovision! It is such a joyous coming together of nations and cultures, with a wonderful audience who celebrate diversity, equality, positivity and, above all, a real love of music from all over the world! It might just be the happiness night on earth! / Am fost foarte norocoasa sa lucrez cu artistii belgieni, Loic Nottet si Blanche, si am cele mai frumoase amintiri din timpul petrecut impreuna. Nu exista nimic in lume ce se poate compara cu Eurovisionul! Este bucuria reuniunii natiunilor si culturilor, cu un public minunat care sarbatoreste diversitatea, egalitatea, pozitivitatea si, mai presus de toate, o adevarata dragoste a muzicii in toata lumea! Ar putea fi noaptea de fericire pe pamant!

Which songs do you like the most from this year’s Eurovision? / Ce piese iti plac cel mai mult din cadrul Eurovision 2018?

I do often love what the Belgians put forward, they have such style and class. Sennek seems wonderful and I’m enjoying listening to her soothing voice. She performed a beautiful cover of last year’s winning song and I love that. / Mi-a placut deseori ceea ce au prezentat belgienii, au stil si clasa. Sennek este minunata si ma bucur sa-i ascult vocea linistitoare. A realizat un cover frumos al cantecului castigator de anul trecut, care mi-a placut foarte mult.

You are a reknown actress, too. If you were to choose, what would it be between music and acting? / Esti si o actrita de succes. Daca ar fi sa alegi intre muzica si actorie, ce ar fi?

I live for music, but luckily we are in a time where we no longer have to choose! We can try it all! I love so many aspects of the arts and am grateful for the opportunities I get in the recording studio and also on stage and I can’t wait to keep up that variety going forwards. / Traiesc pentru muzica, dar din fericire, ne aflam intr-o perioada in care nu mai trebuie sa alegem! Putem incerca totul! Imi plac mai multe forme ale artei si sunt recunoscatoare pentru oportunitatile ce mi se ofera atat in studioul de inregistrare, cat si pe scena si vreau sa avansez in aceasta varietate.

What do you know by far about Romania and our musical culture? Which is your opinion about our song this year’s Eurovision? / Ce lucruri cunosti despre Romania si despre cultura noastra muzicala? Care este opinia ta despre piesa noastra de la Eurovision 2018?

I’d love to learn more about Romanian culture and music! I really enjoy the use of piano and cello in ‘Goodbye’ and I’m so looking forward to meeting The Humans at the Eurovision Village in Lisbon, I know we’re going to have so much fun together. It’s impossible not to have the best time at Eurovision! / Mi-ar placea sa aflu mai multe despre cultura si muzica romaneasca!

Stiu ca ne vom distra de minune impreuna. Este imposibil sa nu ai parte de cele mai bune momente la Eurovision!

Tell us a bit about SuRie – the woman behind the stage. / Cum este Surie – femeia din spatele scenei?

I’ve often been described as small, but mighty! People are sometimes surprised at how a big voice can come out of a surprisingly short person! I’m a trained classical musician, in piano, oboe and voice, before moving more into theatre, jazz, singer songwriter pop and now Eurovision! / Am fost deseori descrisa ca fiind mica de inaltime, dar puternica! Oamenii sunt uneori surprinsi de modul in care o voce mare poate veni dintr-o persoana surprinzator de scunda! Sunt un muzician clasic, cu formare in pian, oboi si voce, inainte de a ma indrepta mai mult spre teatru si jazz. Sunt cantareata, compozitoare si acum sunt la Eurovision!

Share a message for our readers and all your Romanian admirers! / Ce mesaj doresti sa transmiti cititorilor nostri si tuturor admiratorilor tai din Romania?
