MARAAYA – HERE FOR YOU
Composers: Raay, Marjetka Vovk, Charlie Mason
In late 2014, RTVSLO confirmed that EMA would take place in order to find their next Eurovision representative. Submission period was open until December 21st and 145 submissions were received on time. Eventually eight acts made it to the national final. Some of them were chosen from among the submissions and some were invited to enter the race. The final was held on February 28th and it consisted of two voting rounds. In the first round only the jurors voted and their two favorites made it to the superfinal where the winner was chosen by the audience.
Maraaya is a duo, consisting of Marjetka and Raay. They met when they both studied at the same school and soon fell in love. Now they are a married couple and making music together. Their first single ‘Lovin’ Me’ was a huge hit in Slovenia. Raaya has co-composed both, the 2014 Junior Eurovision as well as their 2014 Eurovision entry.
The duo may be best known by now for their trademark – the headphones. According to Marjetka, she feels much more comfortable on stage when she has the headphones, just like in a recording studio.
