On the 18th of Septmber 2023, Germany revealed the results of the online selection for Junior Eurovision 2023.
Fia won the online national final organized by NDR with her song “Ohne Worte”. Here is the snippet that was released back then:
And now, we finally can listen to the full version:
Fia is no stranger to competitive singing. She was, after all, a finalist in The Voice Kids Germany’s 11th season under the team of Eurovision 2010 winner Lena Meyer-Landrut.
Fia was born in Shanghai and was raised in Germany after the birth of her younger sister. She currently lives in Berlin and has two pet rabbits named Simba and Puschel. When asked about her hobbies, Fia states that it is “performing” and a press release described her as the “entertainer in her family.” Besides performing, Fia enjoys climbing and swimming in her free time.
One signature characteristic of Fia’s performances is being able to sing in sign language while singing with vocals at the same time (as seen in her national final performance). Her ability to sing in sign language came from her desire to not have her sister (who is non-hearing) be left out when watching her performances.
