Krisia, Hasan and Ibrahim's 'beautiful dream'

24 October 2014 at 12:02 CEST

At 10 years old, Krisia Marinova Todorova is one of the youngest singers taking part in this year’s competition. However, despite her tender age she has a staggeringly long list of achievements in Bulgaria already – including singing her country’s national anthem to over 40,000 people at the national stadium in Sofia. Brothers Hasan and Ibrahim Ignatov are also 10 years old, although they will turn 11 before the end of their year, and are both exceptional pianists despite their young ages.

Krisia, Hasan and Ibrahim's Road to Malta

Krisia, Hasan and Ibrahim all gained popularity throughout Bulgaria through their participation in “Slavi’s Show”on bTV. For Junior Eurovision 2014, national broadcaster BNT and commercial station bTV have united to represent Bulgaria in the best possible way. Krisia, Hasan, and Ibrahim were therefore selected internally, through a partnership between the two channels.

About the song

“Planet of the children”, which will be sung entirely in Bulgarian, is about a fairy that wants to wake the child inside everyone. The fairy believes that wars, fear and famine do not exist on the children's planet, only goodness. In English, the chorus reads:

It will be a planet of children,

without hunger and fear, and war.

It will be a planet of children,

our Earth.

On stage

The three children will be the only people on stage for Bulgaria’s entry, which will see them all doing what they do best – Krisia singing, and Hasan and Ibrahim playing pianos around her. Dry ice was included as part of the preview video, and is expected to be a feature on stage in Malta.

Video Greeting

Krisia, Hasan, and Ibrahim took some time to send us a video greeting, which you can watch below!
