THE ROOP’s Open Statement about Their Eurovision Song

The first to announce their participation in the Lithuanian National Eurovision selection, THE ROOP are finally introducing their dedicated song “Yes, I Do”.

The band’s voice and soul Vaidotas Valiukevičius shares his story behind the song. “Yes, I Do” is about me. More than a year ago I was diagnosed with depression. It has been a rough period. Every night the mood would go down massively, however every morning would bring hope, albeit small. I would feel much better in the morning. The morning, to me, symbolizes life and hope – that’s why in the chorus we sing “Every morning, World, I still love you” – Openly says Vaidotas.

With this song THE ROOP sends a message to all who feel sad, disappointed, depressed or lost – they should know that there is a way out and you can live on. The morning is a magical time which really heals.

“I am already healthy and continue walking my path in life. I decided to be brave and talk about this openly. I am sure that anyone can stumble or feel down – the main thing is to get up and move on.” – Smiles Vaidotas

THE ROOP‘s appearance in the National Eurovision selection is on 3rd of February on
