MARIA OLAFS

She has had more stage experience than most of her friends. In 2007 she had a small role in a play, which was staged by The National Theatre in Reykjav├şk. She played the role of Louisa von Trapp in the Sound of Music in the Municipal Theatre in Reykjav├şk in 2009 ÔÇô the original movie of the show is one of her all-time favourites.

She started working with the StopWaitGo songwriting team in 2012 when still a student at Verzlunarsk├│li ├Źslands high school. When the StopWaitGo threesome wrote the song Unbroken for this yearÔÇśs S├Ângvakeppnin the guys had Maria in mind and the song perfectly fits her vocal range. She agreed to sing the song but did not expect to win the contest, so the victory came as a total surprise.

One step at a time
out of the darkness
one foot in front of the other.

One step at a time
into the distance
a new path I need to uncover.

IÔÇśm letting go.
Go.

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.
One step at a time
I pick up the pieces
try putting them back together
till IÔÇśm unbroken.
Unbroken.
One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.

One step at a time
and I got a feeling
itÔÇśs either now or never.

IÔÇśm letting go.
Go.

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.
One step at a time
I pick up the pieces
try putting them back together
till IÔÇśm unbroken.
Unbroken

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.

IÔÇśm letting gon.
Go.

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.
One step at a time
I pick up the pieces
try putting them back together
till IÔÇśm unbroken.
Unbroken.

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.

IÔÇśm letting go.
Go.

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.
One step at a time
I pick up the pieces
try putting them back together
ÔÇÖtil IÔÇśm unbroken.
Unbroken.

One step at a time
get out of the darkness
and into the light forever.
