Aistė Pilvelytė has been singing about love on the Lithuanian stage for many years, so she will sing the ballad "I'll Never Love Again" in the project "Dream Duets". She says that although she is familiar with the feelings expressed in the song, she herself has the attitude that moving forward and pursuing what makes her happy is a must.
Pilvelytė says that when she was in her twenties, she had to make a difficult decision - to choose between a relationship and her career. She says she chose music then, but today she understands that these things have to be compatible and that there should be no such dilemma in a relationship: "I am well aware that love is freedom. When you love, you give someone the freedom to choose what they want in life, what they want to do."
For her dream duet, A. Pilvelytė chose Lady Gaga's "I'll Never Love Again" as a challenge: "For me all songs are a challenge. It's a challenge if I can sing it the way she did. Because the song is insanely difficult. When I listen to it, I think: I might not be able to do these places if I wasn't stubborn."
Four other participants of the show have also chosen songs for their duets, and LRT TELEVISION viewers will be able to see their performances and hear their life stories already this Saturday. Gytis Ivanauskas will be the first to talk about his chosen song - viewers will hear about the first time he saw his goddess Džordana Butkutė and will move on to the performance of the song "I like".
Next up is "I Will Always Love You", a song that has topped the charts twice in its history, first with Dolly Parton and then Withney Houston. The song will be performed by Monika Marija, one of the biggest creative influences on the song with its first female artist, D. Parton, and one of the biggest creative influences on the song, the US singer country Music.
Augustė Vedrickytė will make her childhood dream come true in the project: she will appear in the video together with Robbie Williams, performing the song "Let Me Enterntain You", and will talk about her childhood room, which is decorated with posters of the band "Take That".
The audience will also see the actor and singer Marius Jampolskis, who will perform the song "I Call the Nation" by Vytautas Kernagis, and talk about significant changes in his life: "I started learning to hear. I started to learn to listen to hearing. Now it is sometimes more interesting and useful to listen to what people are saying. And not just to listen, but to hear."
Childhood dreams fulfilled, life's twists and turns, and the most important truths rediscovered in the musical talk show "Dream Duets". The second episode of the project will be available for viewers already this week Saturday, 21:00, on LRT TELEVISION and on LRT.lt.
After the premiere, each programme of the project can be watched in LRT's media library.
