Madalina Lefter and Andrada Popa are two environmentally conscientious young ladies and good friends, who want to send a message to the world with their song Save The Planet, or Salvaţi Planeta.
Madalina says: “After seeing how many disasters there are in our country and all over the world, melting icebergs, the cutting down of trees and the effects of global warming, we wanted to send a message to everybody to somehow make these disasters stop. We would like to tell the people that together we can make a difference.”
The lyrics of the song show how beautiful the nature is, while the girls are dressed so that they symbolize the four seasons and the blue sky, surrounding our planet, the Earth.
Madalina is 10 years old and lives in Iasi in Romania. She is already an accomplished performer and has won over 40 trophies and taken part in various musical contests in her country and abroad.
Last year, Madalina sang a duet with Mihai Traistariu (who represented Romania at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest), while this summer she met Ruslana (the winner of the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest) who was really impressed by Madalina’s voice.
Andrada Popa is also 10 years old and lives in Bucharest, Romania. She has also taken part in different contests and has won special awards. She was nicknamed “little Helena Paparizou” after performing some of Helena’s songs on a TVR show in Romania.
At the beginning of this July, Andrada won the first place (in her age category) in the most important Romanian National Festival for Children: Mamaia Copiilor 2008.
Joining the girls at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest stage are three dancers: Luana Marin, Andreea Munteanu and Andreea Stefan, all from Bucharest and have practiced dancing for three years by now.
