With simple staging accented by swirling smoke behind her, 13-year-old 'The Spirit of Music' singer Sophia kicked off Day 2 on the Arena Gliwice stage. Her song 'The Spirit of Music' tells a message of finding inner strength with the help of music which she demonstrates with a powerful performance alone on stage. As Sophia says: "Music has incredible transforming power".
