Joana Almeida is RTP's choice to represent Portugal at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Gliwice-Silesia, Poland!
The 10-year-old Joana was invited by RTP after winning a popular singing contest for children in Portugal; Gala Internacional dos Pequenos Cantores da Figueira da Foz.
Joana's song, Vem Comigo (Come With Me), was composed by João Pedro Coimbra, a Portuguese musician and composer. He was invited by RTP to write and produce this year's entry. The song talks about the environment and the awareness that children and teenagers have about the danger that Earth is in. Vem Comigo (Come With Me) is a message of hope that youth can make the difference and be the generation that will make a positive impact on the health of our planet.
