Two days ago, Joana Almeida was pointed to have been selected to represent Portugal at Junior Eurovision 2019. RTP has now confirmed the news, she will perform on the big stage.
Joana will sing “Vem Comigo” (Come With Me), composed by João Pedro Coimbra, who was asked to write the Portuguese entry for this year’s Junior Eurovision. Just like the Serbian and Spanish songs, the song talks about the environment and the need to raise awareness about the earth’s situation within the young population. Together, we can make a difference and revert this devastating trend.
