Champion - Jael

The ABC is thrilled to announce that Jael will sing Champion at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC). Champion is an uplifting pop-power anthem that delivers an empowering message – that there’s a bold and brave champion inside of us all! Held on Sunday 25th November at the Minsk Arena, Belarus, ABC ME will broadcast all the incredible performances of the 16th JESC competition during a very special family television event on Monday 26th November at 6pm.

Hailing from Melbourne Victoria, 12-year-old Jael is the singing superstar chosen to represent Australia at JESC 2018. She began singing and wrote her first song at the age of four, and by the time she was nine she was already recording in her dad’s studio. Interested in a wide range of music genres, including pop, hip-hop, contemporary and gospel music – Jael won the top award at the Fast Track Talent Showcase for three years running, and aims to inspire others through her positive uplifting music and attitude.

“I am so happy to be representing Australia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. This is a dream come true for me and something I could never have imagined. I am so excited and can’t wait to represent Australia and make my family and the country proud!” said Jael.

Redefining what it means to be a champion, this inspirational song celebrates those who stand up for what they believe in, overcoming adversity, are a great friend, are true to themselves, and have the courage to speak their truth. One of the song’s lyrics ‘shining your light’ is also a nod to this year’s theme – Light Up! The song was composed and written by Michael Paynter, Michael Delorenzis and Grace Laing from MSquared Productions. Jael is represented by ABC Music, and Champion is released worldwide today on all major digital music services. https://abcmusic.lnk.to/Jael

ABC ME invited a group of young champions to join Jael in her music video. The music video for Champion was filmed at ABC Southbank and includes Jael and the children celebrating the various ways to be a champion.

“This beautifully uplifting anthem conveys an important message to children - you don’t need to win first on a sporting field to be a champion. We can all be champions if we strive to do better and be better in everything we do. This song also enables Jael’s powerhouse voice to shine and we think it will be an instant hit with the ABC ME audience, JESC judges and fans,” said Libbie Doherty, Acting Head of ABC Children’s Television.

Director of Blink TV and Australia’s Head of Delegation for Eurovision, Paul Clarke said: “From first listen, we knew this was the perfect song for Jael, it really shows off her emotive soul voice. Jael will make everyone who hears the song in Europe and Australia feel like a champion! Well done to Australian songwriting team MSquared, this song is a ripper and it maintains our strong standard at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.”

Natalie Waller, Head of ABC Music and Events, said: “We are thrilled to be working with the extraordinarily talented Jael, and are excited to share her journey through the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. We look forward to watching her flourish as an artist and performer.”

Once again Australians will also be able to vote online for their favourite JESC 2018performer including Australia! ABC ME is rallying all Australians to get behind JESC 2018and celebrate not only Jael, but all the young performers competing. Information on how to vote will be available shortly on the ABC ME website.

ABC ME, the ABC ME app and ABC iview will broadcast the JESC 2018 on Monday 26th November at 6.00pm.

The Academy of Ancient Music is an orchestra and choir that performs music from the baroque and classical era, in the way it was first intended. This means taking inspiration from the composers themselves; through careful research and using first edition scores as often as possible. This historically-informed approach was ground-breaking when the orchestra was founded in 1973 by scholar and conductor Christopher Hogwood and the AAM remains at the forefront of the scene today, under the leadership of Music Director Richard Egarr. Originally established as a recording orchestra, the AAM has an incredible catalogue of more than 300 CDs which have won numerous accolades, including Brit, Gramophone, Edison and MIDEM awards. Sonate Concertate In Stil Moderno, Libro Primo is the fifth release on our own label, AAM Records. Previous recordings include the original 1727 version of JS Bach’s St Matthew Passion, which was dubbed “a triumph” by Gramophone magazine. AAMplify, the AAM’s education programme, was launched in 2010 to develop the next generation of young artists and audiences. Working with partners around the country, the AAM delivers workshops, master-classes and other innovative projects for young people.
