Entrant: Sofi Marinova
Sofi Marinova (36) is one of Bulgaria’s most popular performers. Devoted to arts since her childhood, Sofi established herself little by little as a top vocalist in Bulgaria.
Coached by her mother in singing and dancing, Sofi excelled at school in Etropole while impressing musicians from a local band with her beautiful voice. Soon after, granting permission from her parents, she started singing covers at weddings and christenings; Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson’s hits were part of her repertoire as well as gypsy songs from her cultural heritage.
Then her participation in many festivals, where she became victorious, followed and led Sofi to the release of her first album Old Wounds alongside the band Super Express which, according to numerous producers, is the best selling album in the country. Some solo albums followed until she began working with Sunny Music in 2004 and the producer Krum Krumov, a collaboration which continues succesfully to date.
Entry: Love Unlimited
Love Unlimited was not specifically produced for Eurovision. Sofi Marinova had a version of the song in her cell phone for 6–7 months before she came up with the idea to participate with it in Eurovision.
The lyrics of the song are by Doni Vasileva, who came up with the idea of using the words “I love you” in multiple languages.
- Seviyorum seni — Turkish
- Σ’ αγαπάω πολύ /sagapao poli/ (“I love you a lot”) — Greek
- Yo te quiero a ti (“I love you“) — Spanish
- Volim te — Serbo-Croatian
- Теб обичам (“I love you“) — Bulgarian
- But dehaftu mange — Romani
- Voglio bene a te — Italian
- Mən səni sevirəm — Azerbaijani
- Je t’aime — French
- I love you so much — words in English, with which the song ends.
