Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Bulgaria 2015

Junior Eurovision Song Contest

San Marino partecipa allo Junior Eurovision Song Contest con la bambina russa Camilla Ismailova 11 anni e con un brano che si chiama 'Mirror', di Andrelli / Josefin Glenmark / Piero Romitelli / Kamilla Ismailova. L'Eurovision Junior si svolgerà all'Arena Armeec di Sofia il 21 Novembre.

Camilla Ismailova, 11 years old

11-year old Kamilla Ismailova is a young singer, actress, and TV presenter from Moscow – but music is her true love!

Despite being born and raised in Russia, Kamilla will represent the Republic of San Marino in Junior Eurovision 2015 - and this did not come about purely by chance! Kamilla visited San Marino in her early childhood, and since then this small country has taken a place in her heart. The language, the feeling, the people and their pace of life, and the traditions of the country all made a big impression on Kamilla, who promised herself that someday she would be connected with the country again.

While she took interest in the culture of San Marino and its history, Kamilla also always dreamed of performing at Junior Eurovision. Having watched the qualifying rounds and the live final, she wondered how children of her age could get to such a "wonderful" content - and then the idea hit her. Why not send a recording of her new song to the television station in San Marino? And so she did, plucking up the courage, Kamilla send the song and crossed her fingers!

When the producers contacted her parents and informed them that she was approved by the channel management to represent San Marino at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Kamilla was filled with delight and surprise! From then on, the hard work started - translating the song into Italian, and further learning the language; having vocal lessons and choreography classes; creating ideas for the performance and shooting the video. Her life changed incredibly from that moment on.

Aside from Junior Eurovision, Kamilla and her friends from the "S. T. A. R. S" Academy of cinema and show-business host a music chart called "Kids' Top 10 with Yana Rudkovskaya", and also present a fashion/music program called "TrYnd-Fashion". She is also a lover of horses, and enjoys racing with them.

Kamilla enjoys getting into the world behind the looking glass, and behind the camera lens - so it's no surprise that her song is called "The Mirror". Her motto in life is simple: "Never give up, and chase your dreams. Don't pay attention to obstacles, they'll go away". Considering where that approach has got her already, it seems like Kamilla's way of thinking is one to take note of!

What are the highest achievements in your career as an artist?

It seems, I haven’t had too many remarkable achievements in my career so far, but obviously, this counts as the biggest achievement of all; - getting to the finals of the Junior Eurovision!

2. Could you please tell us about your song, - what makes it interesting and remarkable?

My song has a very deep meaning. It is about a girl who has managed to overcome her fears, meet herself; has learnt how to live in harmony with her own reflection – her alter ego.

3. What do you want to achieve by taking part in the Junior Eurovision?

As for me, participating in the Junior Eurovision is a great achievement in itself, - my childhood dream come true! But still, I want as many people as possible to listen to my song and fall in love with it, and certainly I want to win!

4. From what do you draw inspiration?

I get inspiration from people who listen to my songs and who like them, who start smiling or begin to think while listening, - I get the greatest inspiration from them, - my viewers and listeners.

5. What would you say to your fans?
Never give up and go for your dream! Don’t let obstacles get in your way.

6. Tell me something else interesting about yourself or your song (your performance/routine (номер)), something that we have not asked you yet?

Originally the song was written in English. After the song was chosen to represent the wonderful state of San Marino at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, we urgently had to write the lyrics in Italian, - this is because of the contest’s strict rules; - not less than 75 % of the words must be written in the language of the participating country. I had to start taking Italian classes immediately, and to be honest, I have fallen in love with the language! But generally speaking, a great deal of people are working with me - voice coaches, choreographers, record producers and many others. I am very thankful to all my team and I am sure things will turn out exactly as planned!

7. Your personal attitude to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest? What does it mean to you?

"The Junior Eurovision" has always been something special to me, something which I could only dream of. Every time watching the contest I was wondering how kids of my age could perform there? But today I realize, if you wish for something so strong and you work hard, anything is impossible, even flying to the moon!

Камилла Исмаилова, 11 лет
22 июля 2004 года, Москва, Россия

Юная певица, актриса, телеведущая из России.
Любит лошадей, занимается конным спортом.

В раннем детстве Камилла побывала вСан Марино. И уже тогда эта небольшая страна запала ей в душу. Язык, атмосфера, люди со своим ритмом жизни, своими традициями. И тогда Камилла пообещала себе, что когда-нибудь она обязательно свяжет с ней свою судьбу. Как? Жизнь покажет! Она стала интересоваться культурой страны, её историей.
А еще она всегда мечтала попасть на Детское Евровидение - смотрела отборочные туры, финал и удивлялась: как дети моего возраста попадают на этот чудесный конкурс?
И в какой-то момент ей в голову пришла странная мысль — я не отправить ли запись её новой песни на телевидение Сан Марино? Набралась смелости и отправила!
Когда с её родителями связались продюсеры и сообщили, что она утверждена руководством телеканала представлять Республику Сан Марино на Детском Евровидении, её восторгу и удивлению не было предела.
Но она даже не предполагала, какая сложная работа ждет её впереди — перевод песни на итальянский, изучение итальянского языка, ежедневные занятия с педагогов по вокалу и хореографом, генерация идей, постановка номера, съемка клипа! Это перевернуло всю её жизнь!
Она словно попала в Зазеркалье — ведь неспроста её песня называется «Зеркало».

Девиз Камиллы в жизни: Никогда не сдавайся и иди к своей мечте! Помни, что если на препятствия не обращать внимание, то они обидятся и уйдут!

Ответы Камиллы на вопросы для EBU Intravet:

Какие твои наивысшие достижения в творческой карьере?
Серьезных творческих достижений, как мне кажется, я пока имею не так много. И, безусловно, самым большим своим достижением считаю выход в финал «Детского Евровидения»

Расскажи о своей песне - что в ней интересного, особенного?
В моей песне очень глубокий смысл. В ней поётся о том, как девочка поборола свои страхи, саму себя, научилась жить с гармонии со своим отражением — вторым «я».

Чего ты хочешь достигнуть, выступая на Детском Евровидении?
Для меня само участие в финале «Детского Евровидения» - уже большое достижение, реализация своей большой мечты из детства. Но мне бы хотелось, чтобы мою песню услышали и полюбили как можно больше людей и, конечно, очень хотелось бы победить!

В чём ты черпаешь вдохновение?
Я черпаю вдохновение в тех людях, которые слушают мои песни, которым они нравятся,которых они заставляют улыбнуться или задуматься — в своих зрителях и слушателях.

Что бы ты хотела сказать своим поклонникам?
Никогда не сдавайтесь и идите к своей мечте. Помните, что если на препятствия не обращать внимание, то они обидятся и уйдут.
Расскажи еще что-нибудь интересное о себе и своей песне (своем номере), о чем мы тебя еще не спросили
Первоначально песня была написана на английском языке. После того, как её выбрали представлять замечательное государство Сан Марино на Д»етском Евровидении», пришлось срочно писать итальянский текст, ведь по строгим правилам этого конкурса не менее 75% текста должно быть на языке страны-участниц. Мне срочно пришлось брать уроки итальянского языка. И, честно скажу, я в него практически влюбилась!
А вообще со мной работает очень много людей - преподаватели по вокалу, хореографы, постановщики, продюсеры и многие другие. Я очень благодарна всей своей команде и уверена, что у нас все получится именно так, как задумано!

Твое личное отношение к Детскому Евровидению? Что оно для тебя значит?
«Детское Евровидение» для меня всегда было чем-то особенным, о чем я могла только мечтать. Каждый раз я смотрела этот конкурс и удивлялась, как дети моего возраста там выступают? Но сегодня я поняла, что если сильно захотеть и упорно трудиться, то все возможно, даже на Луну полететь!
