Sydney singer Silia Kapsis will represent Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden.
It marks the second year in a row an Aussie will represent Cyprus at Eurovision, following Sydney’s Andrew Lambrou.
Her song has been written by Greek composer Dimitris Kontopoulos but details are yet to be released by broadcaster CyBC.
In July she asked Facebook fans to support her chances of representing Greece.
According to a bio: “Silia is a singer of Cypriot and Greek descent, born and raised in Sydney, Australia. She has been performing since the age of 4, and has had extensive training with elite artists at the top of their respective fields.
“Silia has been awarded numerous accolades, including the Bobby McCloughan Creative Arts Award (130 Anniversary Award) at Claremont College, The St Vincent’s College Madame Christian Scholarship for Singing and more recently, been a recipient of the Village Nation Performing Arts College Scholarship for an all-round triple threat performer.
“As a Singer Silia has been the lead singer for the Australian Youth Performing Arts Company (AYPAC) and recurrent lead singer at numerous high-profile events worldwide, including being the solo performer for Hollywood Star, Alex Russell at his exclusive 30th Birthday Event in Los Angeles.
“Performing however, was just the beginning. Her love for music flourished into releasing her debut song, Who Am I?, which she primarily wrote and composed at the age of 12. Silia then went on to release her second song, No Boys Allowed in March 2023 with her latest song, Disco Dancer being released in May 2023. Her next single is set to be released in late 2023.”
SBS is yet to confirm if Australia will participate in Eurovision 2024.
