Another of the vast amount of television singing contest alums Gabriela Gunčíková, winner of the second series of the Czech Republic’s SuperStar, has one whopping big task ahead of her.
The Central European nation of Czech Republic has never qualified for the Eurovision Grand Final and Gabriela’s “I Stand” is potentially their best chance at fighting their way out of the semi-final forest.
If the Czech’s can replicate some of the dramatic and arresting imagery from the “I Stand” supporting videoclip then we may see a debutante finalist in 2016. Good luck Gabriela.
