The musical show The song of my life will have a special episode dedicated to Ukraine.
1+1 media, FILM.UA Group and Finnish production Yellow Film & TV are working together to develop a special episode of The song of my life project. This popular format show has become a smash hit for the Finnish public broadcaster YLE, with over 40% viewing share. So, for the first time in the history of the project, the creators of the show offered to make a special episode dedicated to Ukraine in collaboration with the largest Ukrainian media holding and production.
The release will begin with the famous Finnish TV presenter Katya Stol, and Ekaterina Osadchaya will become the host of the entire Ukrainian episode. Among the stars who will take part in the show will be the singer DOROFEEVA, 1 + 1 host Timur Miroshnichenko, the frontman of the Antitela band Taras Topolya and the spouses-athletes who are national pride – Mikhail Romanchuk and Marina Bekh. The episode will also feature songs performed by Finnish artists Diandra Flores, Arja Saijonmaa, Kasmir, Irina, Jore Marjaranta, JP Leppäluoto.
According to the rules of the format, four celebrities will talk about the song of their lives, which has a special meaning for them. For their part, the vocalists – KOLA and LAUD – will perform these songs live, and the guests, having heard this or that track, will have to guess which song belongs to a particular star member. A feature of the show is that none of the viewers, even the presenter, will know in advance about the choice of stars. The winner is the one who guesses the songs chosen by the stars the most times.
“The songs and stories in the project will be dedicated to Ukraine and the war that is still going on. These songs will inspire millions of people to hope, fight and believe in Ukraine. Now we are doing our best to make the voice of Ukraine on the cultural front sound loud and unite around us the whole world. This is our mission both as creators and as Ukrainians,” organizers from 1+1 media and FILM.UA say
“This is a very special project for us, we are all very happy to be able to express our support to the Ukrainian people. We hope that the Song of My Life, thanks to the power of music, will be able to bring some joy and comfort to Ukrainians in these difficult times. I am personally grateful for the implementation of the idea that we had with FILM.UA director Viktoria Yarmoshchuk in June in Budapest,” commented Anna-Maria Meurman, Executive Producer of Yellow Film & TV.
“Music works wonders! Well, we may not be able to stop the senseless war with this show, but since “the song of my life” is about music, history and humanity, we can at least spread a little more humanity and hope in the world. This is ours.” an ambitious goal of cooperation,” adds show host Petja Peltomaa (Yellow Film & TV).
One of these days, the Ukrainian team will go to shoot the episode, which will take place on September 27 in Finland. Thanks to Finnish partners and the Embassy of Ukraine in Finland, the hall will be attended by Ukrainian migrants who were forced to leave their homes due to the Russian war.
It is planned that the Ukrainian edition will also be shown in other European countries in order to attract the attention of the world and remind of the courageous resistance of Ukrainians in the war with the Russian Federation. In Ukraine, the episode will be broadcast in November on the TET channel, on the Kyivstar TV online television platform, and on the FILM.UA YouTube channel.
