Marta is from Bad Salzuflen in North Rhine-Westphalia. She loves performing and says that her role model is her singing teacher.

Viewers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland are able to vote on the artists, with the top three going forward to the televised selection show ‘Junior ESC - Who's going to Paris?’ on Friday 10 September.
One act will be crowned winner and represent Germany at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Last year, Susan performed for Germany with the song Stronger With You.
The student reminisced about her time at the Contest: 'It was a really great experience. Also, because I sang alone in a music video for the first time. I met so many new people.'
