Roksana Węgiel, who won the first Polish edition of 'The Voice Kids' will represent Poland at the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest on 25 November in Minsk.

Roksana is happy to represent Poland: "Winning 'The Voice Kids' was a great honour and a dream come true for me, but the opportunity to represent our country at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is an even bigger honour! It is worth dreaming and striving for your goals. Thank you for believing in me."

Roksana 'Roxie' Węgiel is 13 years old and besides singing, she practices acrobatics, judo, hip-hop and ballroom dancing. Fun fact: Roksana discovered her talent for singing during a karaoke competition at judo camp.

With her mature sounding voice, Roksana surprised coach and singer Edyta Górniak at 'The Voice Kids': "I thought you were unreal. Beyoncé certainly did not have such a voice at your age." Winning the show caused her to break through in Poland. The music video for her single Żyj has been watched over 8 million times and she is currently performing a lot and working on her debut album.

Her song for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be released on a later date.
