A letter from Eliias to the fans of Junior Eurovision

"I still miss the week in Kyiv. I had so much fun and met so many nice people, some of them I’m still in contact with. I had a bit of bad luck that puberty decided to change my voice just weeks before the contest, and it was a bit of a struggle to learn how to sing with this ‘new’ voice. But as I said, I still had a really great time.

It’s amazing to find out that there’s a small but beautiful fan-base around the world. I get a lot of messages and I try to answer them all but some think that I don’t answer fast enough, so I want to say ‘Please don't be sad or angry, it's nothing personal and I’m so grateful for your messages.’ And to all people that call themselves my fans I want to say, ‘You are all so awesome! Many hugs!’

I haven't done that many performances after Junior Eurovision, but did take part in a charity event (World AIDS day) together with a lot of Swedish artists, like Alcazar and others. That was a lot of fun and I had two women signing the lyrics of my song in sign language while I performed which was a really cool thing.

During Christmas and until the end of January I was in a musical based on Astrid Lindgren’s books called ‘Emil I Lönneberga.’ I was part of the ensemble (not the main part of Emil as I’m too old for that), which meant a lot of singing and dancing. We did a lot of shows and it was a lot of fun. Some of the cast and crew were the same that did the Musical about ‘Pippi Longstocking’ in 2012 so it was just like hanging out and having fun with friends.

I got a contract with a small label that also released 'Det är dit vi ska'. I work with the two awesome producers Quiz and Larossi who have worked with a lot of great international artists. There are plans to release a new single soon, so I have been in the studio doing some vocals on one of my songs which we hope to release sometime in April. I have also made a lot of demos of my own songs and hope to be able to share them with you in the future.

Also I have visited some schools after being invited to talk about my music and how I write my songs. Besides this it's school as usual: so much homework, so little time."
