SAN MARINO 2012, 2013 & 2014
Maybe she has a story to tell... Yes, its the queen of the San Marino music scene, the beautiful Valentina Monetta!
Since her early childhood, Valentina Monetta discovered a love for music, listening tirelessly to various musical styles, creating and forming a specific taste over time.
Amazingly, Valentina is self taught and learned the art of singing and playing the piano through studing by herself, reaching the same professional high quality as many other contemporary artists today.
In 1995, worked with the best local musicians, becoming a versatile singer with a great talent for improvisation; her voice is both colorful and versatile, ranging from jazz to melodic Italian, from soul to R&B and pop.
Valentina's artistic versatility has allowed her to deal with varied work experience as a singer, actor and presenter, and she even composed the music and wrote lyrics to her first solo album, a celebratory work of personal and professional balance, releasing the CD, Il Mio Gioco Preferito, recorded with the trio My Funky Valentine (Simone Migani on piano, Massimiliano Castri on drums, Alex Gorbi on bass).
Valentina started an adventure with her first band Tiberio, and soon thereafter formed the Parafunky. She was also part of the group 2Black, as well as forming the female vocal duo Harem'B
It was in 2012 that Valentina first represented her country for Eurovision where she took part in the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan, on behalf of San Marino with the Social Network Song.
Valentinas popularity in San Marino was such that she was invited back to represent her country again the following year, where she sang Crisalide (Vola) when Sweden hosted the competition in Malmo in 2013.
Once again in 2014, she came back for San Marino with Maybe in an unforgettable dress with beautiful staging.
Valentina still continues to perform today and we are priviledged to have her as part of EuroStarz!
The Social Network Song
(Oh Oh – Uh - Oh Oh)
Are you ready for a little chat
And a song about the Internet
It's a story ‘bout a social door
You’ve never seen before
If you wanna be seen by everyone
Wanna be in the dream and have some fun
If you wanna be on the hook
Then simply take a look
Oh Oh Uh Oh Oh
Everybody loves you so
Oh Oh Uh Oh Oh
Everybody that you know
Do you wanna be more than just a friend
Do you wanna play cyber sex again
If you wanna come to my house
Then click me with your mouse...
Certe volte dentro me
Ho sentito un vuoto che
Mi chiamava dentro di sé
Vieni ora a vedere la verità
C'è un ponte sull'immensità
Cosa sono in fondo io
Sogno fragile di dio
Con un corpo fatto così
Grandi occhi colore
Vivendo si muore
Rinnovati per l'eternità
Che la forza arriverà
Verso un'altra libertà
La farfalla nuova lascia sempre giù
La crisalide che eri tu
Vuota senza me...
Maybe there's a pearl in the shell
Maybe there's a story to tell
Maybe we can not live in peace cos we're under a spell
Maybe there’s a light from above
Maybe there’s a flight of a dove
When it's time
To open the heart of love
Maybe we can try
Maybe you and I
Are finding pain to overcome
Maybe then one day
Every soul heals and will find a way...
