Eksenia is a finalist in the MJESC for the third consecutive year. In 2019 she participated with the song Always Remember us this way and in 2020 she formed a duo with her friend Zaira, presenting the original song ‘Only Live Once’
This year Eksenia is participating in the MJESC Final with the song Building, composed by Philippa Naudi and Bettina Muchmore from the New Victorians.
The song describes, how sometimes, what you spend a long time building can be destroyed overnight. Build anyway! This song is all about daring to hope. We’ve all experienced the hardships of COVID-19, where our expectations didn’t always match reality. We’ve felt let-down, overwhelmed and fearful to take the next step. But this track is about just that – daring to carry on even when times are hard.
