Dalal Midhat has chosen to auction off clothing and other memorabilia of her time in the Eurovision Song Contest last year for charity.
The auction which is currently taking place online has been set up in order to support funding for a bone marrow transplant for a one-year-old girl also named Dalal.
Items on auction include a rare limited edition promotional CD of last year’s Bosnian entry. Also on sale at the auction are items of clothing worn by Dalal both in the music video of their entry and on stage at Stockholm last year. Items that Dalal wore at the Bosnian-Herzegovinian embassy in Stockholm are also included in the auction.
Clothing items at the auction include a pair of red pumps, goatskin belt, tribal necklace, a unique Adela Hodzic vest, a pair of earrings and ring sold together, a sweater and finally a Madam Jolie purse.
Dalal Midhat represented Bosnia and Herzegovina in Stockholm last year alongside Deen, Ana Rucner, and Jala. Their song “Ljubav je” finished in 11th place in the first semi-final in 2016, therefore narrowly missing the grand final. This marked the first time that Bosnia and Herzegovina had failed to qualify.
