A day in the life of: Soleá19 November 2020 at 15:00 CET
Representing Spain at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is "a dream coming true", Soleá said. The multi-talented artist comes from one of the most important flamenco families in Spain: the Farruco. Let's find out what she does in a typical day!
Soleá begins her day with learning. "I'm at my school, it is called Ruemy. My father and uncles studied at this school as well, I am the third generation of my family who studies here. It is not very big but it is very familiar and they are really nice."
"I also like this school because they welcome us with music. The song they play the most is Palante. These are my classmates! After school, I do my homework at home. I like all subjects, except for one: maths."
"Together with my cousins, we follow flamenco lessons, taught by my grandmother."
Soleá's grandmother 'Mama Farruca' provided a special message just for her granddaughter: "I wish you the best. Because I love you, because you are my life. I know that you can and you fight for your studies, for your passion, the flamenco, and for everything you want. I know that you will achieve your goals."
After her flamenco lessons, Soleá goes to 'Mama Dolores' who she says "makes the best donuts in Spain."
What a delightful day full of learning, dancing, singing and spending time with family!
We then checked in with Soleá's parents who are very excited for their daughter to be taking part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Just like Mama Farruca, they also have a big message for her: "Enjoy it a lot. We will always be with you and support you. God bless you always. Do your best, my dear. For us, you are already the winner."
Thank you Soleá for giving us a sneak peek into what your day looks like! We look forward to watching your performance of Palante on Sunday 29 November!
