Georgia - Keep the faith - Tamara Gachechiladze

11 - 99 pts in semi 1
Tamara (Tako) Gachechiladze (თაკო გაჩეჩილაძე) is the winner of the Georgian national final.
Her song is titled Keep The Faith and it was written by Tamara herself (at first).
Listen to the original studio version here at Soundcloud.
A second version was recorded for Eurovision with a little help of Anri Jokhadze of I'm A Joker fame (Georgia's song in 2012).
Jokhadze is now listed as the composer (also on the promo), so I don't know what happened there...

The ESC version was released to Spotify on March 29 and through digital stores on April 8.
She decided to use her name Tamara instead of Tako (the name she won the NF with).

A promo dvd-r is in gatefold sleeve is issued. It features the video in 4k picture quality.
(So no audio, it won't play in your CD player)

Tamara Gachechiladze is one of the 3 G as in Stephane & 3G, the band that won the 2009 Georgian final with their We Don't Wanna Put In. You know the story, they didn't go. (All about that here)

Georgia's National Final had 25 artists lined up, and not one of them named Sopho!. 25 songs in one night, jus' sayin' ! You can listen to the songs here at Eurovision Georgia.
