BUDAPEST, HUNGARY – Boglárka Csemer a.k.a “Boggie” will represent Hungary at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna with her song „Wars for Nothing”.
Before the Hungarian national final she gained a lot of attention with an organizing an extraordinary event: she invited people to do a flashmob on one of Budapest’s most beautiful squares, in front of the St Stephen’s Basilica. In February, hundreds of participants joined Boggie and her band to sing her song together.
Driven by her flashmob’s success in Budapest, Boggie came up with a brave idea. She wants to bring this experience to other big cities of Europe and invites everyone to join in. Between 17 April and 5 May she visited Amsterdam, London, Berlin, followed now by Paris (May 2) and Rome (May 5), in the hope that as many followers as possible will sing Wars for Nothing together with her. Of course she will also do a flashmob in the host city of the Eurovision Song Contest, Vienna as well.
“It is a very exciting mission and of course great fun to play music on the most beautiful squares of Europe together with my friend Milán Szakonyi who will also stand on stage with me in Vienna. Nevertheless, this action also has a deeper meaning. While I sing this song, I sing it for and in the name of many of us. To perform it together with strangers and the fact that people are willing to become part of it, is a great symbol of the need for unity and of course for the power of music. I cannot wait to stand on the Eurovision stage in Vienna but until then I want to spread my song and its message as far as I can.”
