In this series of blogs I have been taking a look at some of the songs that will be taking part in the semi-finals of Selecția Națională 2018, and today I will be taking a look at the song “From Underneath” by Hellen!
The song “From Underneath” will be performed by Hellen, and was written by John Ballard & Magnus Hyden.
The song for me has a very strong emotional connection, which is shown through the entire lyrics of the song, and also shown in the emotional harmony of Hellen’s unique and stunning voice.
The song is a great match for Hellen as it really suits her voice perfectly, which to me is the sign of great songwriting from both John & Magnus. I honestly believe it shows a sign of a good songwriter when they are able to connect the unique emotion behind a song with a singers unique emotional vocal connection.
Overall, I honestly like this song a great deal, and believe it could do very well within the contest. Good luck Hellen!
