The representative of Iceland at Eurovision Song contest 2016, Greta Salóme, has put up for sale her Eurovision dress to help spread awareness about negativity and bullying and help Speak UP!
Greta Salóme´s song “Hear Them Calling” from the Eurovision Song Contest is all about the voices we are exposed to every day, negative and positive. The song and its message have touched people all over the world.
Greta Salóme says: “Since the release of the song I have recieved so many messages from people all over the world that have been touched by the song. I´ve also been approached by a lot of people that have a personal experience with negative voices it´s safe to say that the spreading of the message has surpassed all expectations. To hear people say that my music has helped them makes everything I do worth while and I want to continue to spread a positive message with my music. I believe that bullying and cyber bullying is a global issue and something that is growing to be a huge proplem especially for the younger generation. Therefore I´m giving the dress that I wore on the stage at Eurovision to Speak UP. I hope the auction can help spread awareness about negativity and bullying and help Speak UP continue their fantastic work against bullying. I´m honored to be able to help!
