17 November 2017 at 14:29 CET
We are another day closer to the final of the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Today we find out more about Ana Kodra from Albania and her song with an unusual title, 'Don't Touch My Tree'.

Ana began performing at the age of eight years old when she participated in the TV show Tu Si Che Vales. This spectacle had many competitors with various talents and different ages. Ana, though eight years old, managed to go to the final and found her own fan base. 

In November 2016, Ana won third prize at the international children’s festival, Prishtina Kids Fest and represented Albania at another international festival, Tra La La, held in F.Y.R. Macedonia. In June 2017 Ana Kodra won two awards at the International Children's Festival in Shkodra, taking the prizes for the Best Vocal and Best Song. 

Ana is now 10 years old and she has been studying the piano for the last six years. She won the Albanian national selection for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and will perform her song Don’t Touch My Tree (Mos Ma Prekni Pemen).
