Her song was written by Martin Kavulič, who’s a famous composer in Slovakia. He specialises in pop and dance music, but he likes other genres too. Apart from producing he also plays guitar and piano. His co-operation with Kristina began a couple of years ago.

  1. SLOVAKIA GO!
    Awesome song and singer, I’m crossing fingers for her!

    BTW, it’s not a tribute for Hron, but for Horehronie, which is a region upon the river.

  2. Beautiful – my personal fav. ( which means it won’t win but hope dies last – would be a deserved victory! ).

  3. It’s a shame it didn’t make it to the final. Beautiful song sung by a very talented and gorgeous young lady. She has a big future ahead of her 🙂
