Going For The Gusto: “Lights On” by @MarkusRiva

MARKUS RIVA, “Lights On”

“Lights On” is a big powerhouse of a song that should take its positive message around the world, courtesy of Latvian singer Markus Riva.  Readers of this blog already know the talented singer/producer/model/DJ from his BILLCS Top 30 Top 10’s “How It Feels To Be A Man” and “We Dance 4 Reason”, and his gritty vocal captures the presence of the underdog rising to the top.  It’s a very different follow up to his last single/video for “Fire”, which I wrote about recently.  I learned last night that “Lights On” is a contender to represent Latvia at Eurovision.  Don’t be surprised – songs with big choruses and inspirational lyrics go over big with judges.  Side note: He’s competing against his “We Dance 4 Reason” buddy Ralph Eilands! If “Lights On” gets to Eurovision, it has a real shot at winning.  If not, then no time should be wasted in marketing it globally.  I sense that it will also be played at soccer/football games 😉
