Klesta Qehaja will represent Albania in the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song Besoj. Earlier today the ten year old singer rehearsed for the second time and was pleased with how it all went and even treated the team to an impromptu performance of Albania's 2012 Eurovision Song Contest entry, Suus. 

Despite her young age Klesta has a powerful voice and hopes to go far in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for both her country and her fans. "I feel very relaxed because I sang very good so I feel very proud of myself", she said smiling. The optimistic young singer added "all our dreams could become true if we have the courage to pursue them".

In her spare time Klesta enjoys dancing and playing with her friends. She has many wishes and dreams for a happy life for all the children in the world and she expresses this through her music. "I feel very excited about this chance and am enjoying my time here" she said.
