Roksana, or Roxie, Węgiel is a 13-year-old vocalist who won the first season of The Voice Kids Poland. She is a girl full of energy and always does what she believes in. 

Before pursuing her career in singing, she trained acrobatics, judo and dance. But her biggest passion has always been singing and music. Roksana’s mature voice impressed her The Voice Kids Poland coach Edyta Górniak, who represented Poland at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994: “I thought she was not real. I’m not sure whether Beyonce had such a strong voice as Roksana has at her age.” This was Roxie’s real breakthrough moment.

Roksana discovered her singing talent in a very unusual way: she was participating in a judo camp karaoke contest where she received a lot of positive feedback on her voice. This encouraged her to work hard to develop her singing skills. Her first single, titled Żyj (Live), has over 8 million views on YouTube and she has over 200.000 followers on social media. Roksana’s latest single, titled Obiecuję (I promise) has shown a very different side of her and also became popular among fans. Currently Roksana Węgiel is working on her debut album.

Lyrics of Anyone I Want To Be

Used to live in the shadow
Now I’m not afraid to risk it all
I can talk a bit louder
With a power of a thunderstorm

Mam niepokorny stan
czuję coraz mocniej dzień po dniu
Kiedy moje serce złapie rytm
nie powiem stop, nie powiem stój

Chce unosić się na wietrze
Mogę być, tym kim zechce
lecę tam gdzie nieznany ląd
Sięgam gdzie nie sięga wzrok

I just wanna scream at the top of my lungs
shout it from the rooftop loud
I speak my heart and I know I can be
ANYONE I WANT TO BE

Life’s never really black or white
There’s more to it than meets the eye
I speak my mind and now I know I can be
ANYONE I WANT TO BE

minuta, dwie przede mną cel
nie wybieram dróg na skrót
trzymam z całych sił za ster
mogę zdobyć każdą z gór

mam niepokorny stan
będę sobą nawet, jeśli świat
już napisał dla mnie inny plan
ja powiem stop, ja powiem pas

Chce unosić się na wietrze
Mogę być, tym kim zechce
lecę tam gdzie nieznany ląd
Dam Daram daram daram

Świat dziś mieni się milionem barw
chowam w dłoniach najcenniejszy skarb
Nawet jeśli przyjdzie biec pod wiatr
wiem, że możesz tak jak ja

Życie to nie tylko czerń i biel
teraz chwytam każdy dzień
nawet jeśli przyjdzie biec pod wiatr
wiem, że możesz tak jak ja

jeszcze przedwczoraj niepewność
strach, który budził ze snu
wystarczy chwila by móc
zamknąć co było na klucz

jeszcze przedwczoraj niepewność
strach, który budził ze snu
wystarczy chwila by móc

oooo oooołłłł ooooo
dam daram daram daram

Life’s never really black or white
There’s more to it than meets the eye
I speak my mind and now I know I can be
ANYONE I WANT TO BE
Used to live in the shadow
Now I’m not afraid to risk it all
I can talk a bit louder
With a power of a thunderstorm

My rebellious position/status
I feel every day more and more
When my heart catch a beat
I won’t say stop I won’t say stay

I wanna float on the wind
I can be whoever I want
I am going where unknown land is
I reach where my eyes can not reach

I just wanna scream at the top of my lungs
shout it from the rooftop loud
I speak my heart and I know I can be
ANYONE I WANT TO BE

Life’s never really black or white
There’s more to it than meets the eye
I speak my mind and now I know I can be
ANYONE YOU WANT TO BE

One minute, two minutes the goal is ahead
do not choose shortcuts
I hold the rudder with all my strength
I can get any of the mountains

My rebellious position/status
I will be myself even if the world
have already written different plan for me
I will say stop, I will say no bid

I wanna float on the wind
I can be whoever I want
I am going where unknown land is
I reach where my eyes can not reach

The world today has a million colors
I hide the most precious treasure in my hands
Even if it comes to run against the wind
I know you can do as I do

Life is not just black and white
Now I’m grabbing every new day
Even if it comes to run against the wind
I know you can do as I do

the day before yesterday uncertainty
fear that wake me up from sleep
just a moment to be able to
lock what was before

I just wanna scream at the top of my lungs
shout it from the rooftop loud
I speak my heart and I know I can be
ANYONE I WANT TO BE

Life’s never really black or white
There’s more to it than meets the eye
I speak my mind and now I know I can be
ANYONE YOU WANT TO BE
