promo cds
Armenia has chosen to send a collective of singers with Armenian roots from five continents to Vienna. The sixth singer, Inga Arshakyan, is from Armenia.
The group is named Genealogy and they performed the song Face The Shadow.
Face The Shadow is written by Armen Martirosyan with lyrics by Inna Mkrtchyan.
Martirosyan also wrote the 2010 entry Apricot Stone which also had a tree....

ARM TV disclosed the names of the six singers one by one starting Februari 16. (see below).

The song was originally titled Don't Deny, but to avoid confusion about the message tying with the 100 years anniversary of the Armenian genocide the title was changed to Face The Shadow.
They also changed the logo's on the facebook pages as the original one was very similar to the one of the Armenian genocide centennial. (see end of page).
The song was presented on March 12.
Watch here at Eurovision TV.
