“Singing for – and creating a track with – Armin van Buuren is a dream come true for me. The lyrics of ‘Cosmos’ are in my own language, Romanian, and I feel that only strengthens the belief that music is a universal language, as ‘Cosmos’ is all about sharing pure emotion. I am so honored to work with [him] and deeply grateful for all the amazing people in my life who keep supporting me!”
