Isabella speaks up
Isabella's song for Junior Eurovision is called Speak Up! "The meaning of the song is about speaking up and voicing your opinion, believing in yourself. Especially being young women or young girls, being able to say what you want to say in life," said Isabella.
When asked about life in Australia the young singer states that she feels lucky to live there. "You can go to the beach and within a day's drive you can go to the rainforest. Everyone in Australia is so friendly, it's such a multicultural country and so diverse."
Speak Up! will be premiered in the coming weeks!
