«I wanted to write a song that could make you cry and dance at the same time», Mika says to me, «A song to make the world, in all it’s harshness, feel better. Something that will always be there to comfort you. I wrote this for you, as you listen in your room, or in a club: it doesn’t matter it’s just about you».
If you haven’t lived under a rock during this week you’ve seen he co-host the world-renowned Eurovision Song Contest.

Mika recently concluded a sold out North American Tour, which culminated on two seismic turns at Coachella.
Mika, known for his vibrant and multi-octave melodies and classically trained voice, uses music to unite a community, especially to connect with those who feel like they are outsiders. His body of work is inspired by personal experiences as coming of age and as a child, when music was his only source of hope. Last year, Mika’s viral «Grace Kelly» challenge, which has nearly 40 million views on TikTok, perfectly reflects his magical ability to create space for people to share their truth, using the power of music to evoke empathy. Mika brings himself to everything he does.
