Aminata (Latvia) blew the press center away with her first rehearsal of “Love Injected.”  She has a strong voice, an excellent performing persona, and a team of talented backup singers that should give way to an atmospheric performance on the Eurovision stage.


Latvia has the longest non-qualification streak of all Eurovision countries participating this year (aside from the Czech Republic).  They have not qualified since 2008, and since then, have barely made it out of the bottom three of the semi-finals.  “Cake to Bake” made a promising step by finishing in 13th in Semi-Final 1.  Could this be Latvia’s year?

We have an interview with Aminata scheduled for Saturday.  In the meantime, please enjoy the footage from Aminata’s Press Meet and Greet.  She talks about her background as well as her upcoming album.  If you fast forward to the 8:56 mark, you can also catch an acoustic version of “Love Injected”.  She blew the press center away!
