About Barbara Pravi
Born to a family of artists and musicians, Barbara has released three EPs to date – Barbara Pravi (2018), Reviens pour l’hiver (2020) and Les prières (2021). In addition to her own music, she has been composing and writing for other artists since 2014.
Her most notable credits to date for most Eurovision fans will be France’s recent Junior Eurovision entries. In 2019, she composed the song “Bim Bam Toi” for Carla, who ended up placing 5th in the contest before the song went viral on TikTok. Barbara went on to write “J’imagine” for Valentina, who went on to win the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Fresh of her success as a writer, she was soon announced as one of the competing contestants of Eurovision France – C’est vous qui décidez!, having been approached previously to participate in Destination Eurovision. Barbara went on to win the selection with a landslide 204 points to runner-up Juliette Moraine’s 136. In Rotterdam, she finished 2nd behind Italy’s Måneskin with 499 points. Under the pre-2016 system, she would have narrowly beat Måneskin.
