Get to know Finnish participant – Zühlke


Ever since her childhood Catharina Zühlke has loved performing and has been determined and uncompromising on her road to becoming a better singer. She made her mark in the Finnish Idols competition in 2013 and in the spring of 2016 she released her debut EP which received a lot of airplay on various Finnish radio channels.

Zühlke has seen UMK as a perfect platform to venues all around Europe. Her song is called Perfect Villain. This song is co-written by  Christian Ingebrigtsen (author of Somewhere Beautiful from Norwegian Melod Grand Prix 2012) and Silje Nyomen who hosted norwegian selections in 2015 and 2016 and Nalle Ahlstedt (Sarah Connor, Helena Paparizou, Bella Throne). The singer is up to release her first album soon.
