Croatia: Jacques Houdek releases official music video for ‘My Friend’

At the beginning of March, Jacques Houdek revealed his entry for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Representing Croatia, he will perform My Friend in Kyiv next month. Alongside the reveal, he uploaded the official lyric video of the song. Nevertheless, Jacques has been busy at work over the past few weeks. Therefore, he has now unveiled the official music video for his Eurovision entry.

Dare to dream and make it real!

The music video for My Friend was directed by Katja Restović, who has previously collaborated Jacques on other projects. The video intertwines various mini-stories of people who do their best, dare to dream and make it real just as the lyrics of the song say. Watch the music video below!

Jacques will perform 12th in the second semi-final on May 11th in Kyiv. He will hope to qualify Croatia for their second consecutive final which takes place two days later. Last year, Nina Kraljić placed 23rd in the final with Lighthouse. It was Croatia’s first appearance in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2013 and their first appearance in a Eurovision final since 2009.

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
