SLOVENIA – “Amen”, the song that will represent Slovenia in the upcoming Eurovision, with singer Ana Soklič, now has an official music video and you can watch it here.
The video clips were shot in the Julian Alps and Lake Bled. Lake Bled is on the list of the most photographed places in the world.
It is located in the centre of the lake, it has rich vegetation, but what stands out on the island is the church of the Assumption of the Virgin.

AN EXTRAORDINARY COLLABORATION
A few days ago, it was announced that there will be another special version of AMEN in collaboration with Perpetuum Jazzile, a worldwide-know Slovenian choir and they will perform the Eurovision 2021 alongside Ana.
Ana says: We also wanted to present the song ‘Amen’ a little differently than the Eurovision audience knows it. When preparing the EP, where you will find several versions of the song, we also wanted to make the choir sound even more expressive. Since I have always admired the members of the group Perpetuum Jazzile for their diversity and excellence, and of course let’s not forget their successes outside Slovenia, there was no doubt about whether they would participate in this song.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ana Soklič started her music career early; as a young person, she studied with Alenka Dernač Bunta, a solo opera teacher, the acclaimed Slovenian musician Darja Švajger (two-time Slovenian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest) and singing coach Nataša Nahtigal.
In 2018, Ana undertook further vocal training with Dileesa Archer (a professional in the soul, gospel, R&B) in the United States. At 18, she set foot on her path as a songwriter as well. As a songwriter, she wants to take people to an unexpected place. For Ana, music is a way of life.
Ana competed twice at EMA, the Slovenian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, and 3 times at the Slovenian Song Festival, where, in 2019, she won 2 jury awards for best interpretation and the best song overall.
She often performs her songs with symphony orchestras at festivals and on television, including the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra and often sings with smaller ensembles, as well. These are her favourite concerts because she feels the connection with the audience is at its most genuine and intimate.
