Slovenian broadcaster RTVSLO has just revealed their artist for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 – it is Raiven, who is described as a ‘musical alchemist’. Raiven fuses the disciplines of pop and opera, showcasing her artistic versatility she thrives as a mezzo-soprano singer, author, songwriter, and harpist. 

RTVSLO received around 100 entries to choose from, and an internal jury of experts selected Raiven for Eurovision 2024. The announcement took place at a press conference held at the Ljubljana Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet.

The Slovenian broadcaster initially planned to hold a national selection, “Misija Malmö,” for the Slovenian artist and song for Eurovision 2024, but they later decided to cancel Misija Malmö and go on with an internal selection instead.

The song that Raiven will sing on the Eurovision stage is titled “Veronika” and will be released on 20 January.

The story of Veronika Deseniška and her supposed witchcraft are well known in Slovenia, and this song continues Raiven’s quest to explore the stories of iconic women from various historical eras.

‘Representing Slovenia at Eurovision is a stepping stone I envision for my career’s progression. When I told my mother I was going to Eurovision, she said she knew I would be standing on that stage one day. She knew it since the first time we were watching this music spectacle together – I was five years old.’
