Leonora Colmor Jepsen, known simply as Leonora, will represent Denmark at Tel Aviv 2019 after winning the Danish national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix with the song “Love is Forever”. She grew up north of Copenhagen and is an accomplished figure skater and songwriter, though her performances have been at local public venues. “Love is Forever” is her first proper single, and will the first song to bring back the Danish language in over ten years.

The title of “Love is Forever” is the core of its song, as the lyrics stare that love is something that brings us all together and is inside each of us. Leonora brings together several languages in the closing verses of the song, echoing the message the love is for all of us.

Leonora was born and raised Hellerup, a small town north of Copenhagen, and has spent most of her years as a professional ice skater. She’s participated in the Danish Junior Champion competition, the Nordic Championship, and the World Junior Championships. Having since retired from figure skating, bar some choreography, Leonora has moved on to pursue music, staring with Eurovision.
