🇪🇸 María Isabel leaves music industry

"I suffer from anxiety and it is difficult to deal with it daily and more in this world."

María Isabel, the winner of the second Junior Eurovision Song Contest, has announced via her Instagram that she is leaving the music industry. She cited her ongoing struggle with anxiety as the reason behind her decision and thanked her followers for their years of support.

Her statement was as follows:

My people…I have made this decision.
I’m leaving, I’m leaving music, I’m leaving everything that I once loved but that today being in the industry is very difficult for me! And it is hard, and it makes me angry…and more so than I have never stopped fighting!
But for other issues I see myself in the obligation of having to take a breath…time to think, meditate, and know the way forward.
I could say that I will return…but that will only happen if I finish understanding how this works!
I suffer from anxiety and it is difficult to deal with it daily and more in this world.
I will tell you about this in more detail…but now with tears in my eyes I can only tell you thank you…thank you to all the people who have not left me alone on this path for 17 years here! I feel fortunate for all the blessings that God has given me and continues to give.
You are the best followers that I have been able to have since I was little, you have always taken yourself to the top!
And that is the most incredible thing that can happen to a person who has always fought for their dreams…to be valued and recognized!
But it’s time to meditate, to think, to work hard…and may God decide the way!
I love you so much

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
