Hi, welcome! It’s a pleasure to get you know, thanks for having this interview…

Thank you the invite! It’s my pleasure.

We noticed that you just came back in Romania. How it is to be back here and to know that in a few days you will compete for Eurovision semifinal?

It’s crazy. I honestly do not know what to expect. I’m excited, scared, happy, nervous, but also enjoying everything very much. I love being here.

There has been a lot of articles that put the qualification of the “What is love” song next to the fact that is played by Carlos Santana’s niece. Did this motivated your or is motivating you right now?

I think it makes no difference who I am or who my family is. It’s all about the song, here and now.

How is Renee Santana far away from the songs which we know already?

I am a very happy person. I am very honest all the time, so I always speak what’s on my mind. I enjoy food, people, music and traveling! So I feel very lucky right now.

Maybe not everybody knows that you released another song here in Romania, “Fly”, a song that was very well received at radio. Tell us how you, an artist came from Mexic, got to collaborate with Mihai Alexandru and to launch a project that got to a really nice shape…

I’m a very lucky girl. Mihai is very talented and a great person. I don’t really know much about how things work here, but they tell me everything is going very good with “Fly”. I’m very happy!

Did you know that Mihai Alexandru labeled you as the best voice he worked with?

Uh, really? Hahaha, wonderful Mihai! (hahaha)

How did you received the offer to participate to Romania’s Selection for Eurovision?

Mihai’s idea! We had other plans. Hahaha, everything changed now! This is an adventure. And I’m very happy for the opportunity.

In the meantime, “What is love” succeeded in the competition’s semifinals, and the public’s opinion is pretty positive. What message should the listeners receive?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My heart is this right now. I’m working for the best. Like us on Facebook and tell us everything you think. Suggestions are welcome! (hahaha)

Why do you think this song is the appropriate to represent Romania at Eurovision?

I don’t know. I like the song! But only the people from Romania can decide who they want to represent their country. It would be my honor if it happens.

We already listened to a live performance that had brought you praise. What we should expect for the Sunday semifinal?

Honesty. Heart. Dancing. I hope and pray that do fall on my face!! (hahaha)

Did you receive any advice that you plan to take into consideration?

I take everything they say to me in consideration. I trust my team very much.
