GREECE 🇬🇷 Brand new summer hit for Elli Kokkinou released today. “Ola Lathos” (All Wrong) is penned by Doron Medalie, the composer of Golden Boy and Toy. It is not the first time Doron is penning a song for a Greek artist as Eleni Foureira already released various songs by the Israeli author such as the Greek version of “Golden Boy” and “Ti Koitas”, the last of which submitted to ERT for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest and it was rejected.
But Elli Kokkinou is not exactly unknown to the Eurovision world. She was suppose to represent Greece in the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, a year when Greece actually won the contest. She withdrawn her bid just few days before the ERT was about to announce her as Eurovision representative, leading things into appointing Helena Paparizou as the Greek artist for Kyiv, back then.
