Italy's Maria Iside chooses not to be afraid

Maria Iside Fiore, 13, has been dancing and singing since she was four, so she took her first steps onto the Junior Eurovision stage in Tbilisi with determination. Her performance fits the lyrics of her song, Scelgo (I Choose), where she sings "I choose not to be afraid". She was the first artist rehearsing in today's rehearsals but she will be the last participant performing on the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
