Demi

Facts about Demi

What are the favourite lyrics of your song?
"Waar we ook wonen, we kijken naar dezelfde maan." It means that no matter where we live, we’re all looking at the same moon. This is my favourite lyric in our song because the other UNITY girls and I don’t live close to each other. But despite the distance, we’re still really good friends. Just like in our song.

How and when did you start with music?
When I was 6 years old, I joined a theatre school just for fun. When I realized how much I loved it, I decided to work hard for it. And now I’m here, joining the Junior Eurovision Song Contest!

Who are your idols?
Dutch singers Maan and Davina Michelle.

How would you celebrate a Junior Eurovision victory?
I would party all day with UNITY and my other friends!

How do you 'Move The World'?
Always help other people when you’re able to.

Maud

Facts about Maud

What are the favourite lyrics of your song?
My favourite lyrics part from our song is: "Op elke afstand staan we sterk, zo klein we lijken". This means "Despite the distance, we’re strong. Even if we’re still kids." This is because we live far away from each other, across the whole country. And although we’re small girls, when we’re together, we can achieve everything we want.

How and when did you start with music?
I started singing and performing when I was very young. When I was 6 years old, I started singing lessons and I’ve never stopped doing it. Singing, dancing and acting are my greatest passions.

Who are your idols?
My idol is the Dutch artist Maan. I really love her style of music and she has an amazing voice.

How would you celebrate a Junior Eurovision victory?
I would stay up late and have a great party with the Unity-girls and our families. It would make us so proud!!

How do you 'Move The World'?
I would move the world by letting all the people do what they like to do the most. And have a free world, with equal rights and respect for everyone, because we’re all humans!

"Best Friends kunnen elke droom bereiken, ja beste vriendschap brengt ons elke grens voorbij." It means if you’re best friends you can achieve every dream. And friendship has no borders. That’s how I feel with my UNITY best friends.

Maan, and I’m inspired by many international artists.

How would you celebrate a Junior Eurovision victory?
Having a party with my girls from the band with food and fun.

Children are the new generation and they can make a change. A better, safer, cleaner earth where food, education, healthcare is available for all mankind. I want to inspire my generation. With our family, we sponsor 2 girls in Indonesia with a monthly contribution so they can have an education. We believe if everybody supports people in 3 rd world countries it can improve their opportunity for a better future.
