– I have always admired female artists with a powerful voice and this has greatly influenced my own singing style.
Eternity, the song performed by Catharina Zühlke, tells about the power of love.
– When this song was born, all the pieces just fell into place. I got a strong feeling that this song has a greater meaning, Zühlke explains.

“A touching story, a dynamic song and a great interpretation by Catharina all make this a potential world-beater at the Eurovision Song Contest.
