About the artist
Mikhail Smirnov is 12 years old and was born in Moscow. Coming from a family of mathematicians, he started to sing at the age of 3. At the age of 8 he started to compete and he has won several prizes both in Russia and abroad. His biggest success was taking part in The Voice Kids in Russia (like last year's Russian representative Alisa Kozhikina) and making it to the final.
Apart from singing, Mikhail likes to play football, write poetry and shoot videos. He has also taken part in musical theatre, like for instance in 'Treasury Island'.
Mikhail won the Russian National Final, which took place at the Luzhniki Arena, on the 25th September 2015.
About the song
And you will take me to the blue skies
And we will sing about the place,
Where the wind plays with the sunlight,
Touching my hair and my face.
'Мечта' (Dream) is a ballad about freedom and love, and the joy of being with the person you love. During the Russian Final, we could see Mikhail performing in a blue stage and a ballerina dancing while he was singing, which gives us some hints about his performance in Sofia.
