Panik Records are reported to be ready to submit its proposal to ERT to send American-Greek singer Evangelia to Eurovision 2022.
On September 7th, Greek public broadcaster ERT launched an open invitation for record companies to submit songs. Evangelia joins other rumored artists such as Marina Satti and Kalomira (3rd at Eurovision 2008). Now more details have emerged that Panik Record is ready to submit its proposal to ERT that includes sending Evangelia to Eurovision 2022.
It is reported that Panik’s proposal includes three songs that have already been completed with music video clips along with ideas for staging. A creative and support team has already been formed should Evangelia be selected by ERT. The proposed songs are reported to contain both Greek and English lyrics with the songs being a combination of traditional Greek sounds mixed with modern pop.
While Evangelia is also set to be in the running to represent Greece in Italy, Evangelia has also been reported to be looking at representing Cyprus at Eurovision 2022.
Evangelia Psarakis, commonly known as Evangelia, is a famous American-Greek singer. She was born in New Jersey in 1991. Evangelia grew up commuting between her grandmother’s small farm on the Greek island of Crete and her parent’s home in the US on the American East Coast, consequently meaning two completely different musical worlds, both of which influenced her style. Among Evangelia’s hits, we can find singles such as “Pamé Pamé” or “Diving” and her most recent single, “Fotiá“.

Greece debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 when they were represented by Marinella and the song “Krasi, thalassa kai t’agori mou” which finished in 11th place with 7 points. Three years later Greece earned their first top 5 finish with Paschalis, Marianna, Robert, and Bessy who finished in 5th place with “Mathima solfege”. In 2001 Greece achieved their first top 3 result with Antique and the song “I Would Die For You”. The song became a European hit and charted across the continent. In 2005 Helena Paparizou returned to the Eurovision stage as a solo artist and brought Greece their first, and to date only, victory. Her song “My Number One” won with 230 points, beating runners-up Malta by 38 points
