YOU • Is an invitation for everyone to Connect, Open Up, Dance, and Celebrate the Moment. The title itself addresses another person, but also the person where it all begins – YOU, yourself. • We’ve all been there. The moment when that unexplainable thing happens and sensations take over you. The choice is yours: let go, put your dancing shoes on, celebrate, and just dance. • I can hardly wait to share my Eurovision 2020 entry “YOU” on 8th of March and officially start my journey of “YOU” with YOU. • Let’s dance! • ❤️🇲🇰 • Vasil • #OpenUp #YOUARE #You #Dance #Celebrate #BeYou #DanceForYou #DanceForLove #ESC2020 #VasilG #DanceToConnect #Eurovision
Vasil started his musical journey at age 7, performing at some of North Macedonia’s most popular children’s festivals. Soon thereafter, he moved with his family to the United States, where he continued his career as a soloist at the Chicago Children’s Choir. He continued his musical training in Toronto and Milan.
Vasil returned to North Macedonia in 2018, and launched his own pop career there with three successful singles: “Gjerdan” (Necklace), “Patuvam” (Travelling) and “Mojata Ulica” (My street). He was also a backing singer for Tamara Todevska in last year’s contest in Tel Aviv.
