IF it came to a clear winner at spreading the message about the power of music at Eurovision then Hungary's Boggie would win hands down.

Despite having released her first solo album in 2013, it was not until January 2014, that she gained worldwide recognition after of one of her songs Nouveau Parfum, went onto YouTub,e where it has been viewed by more than 30 million people across the globe.

The recognition led to her debut album skyrocketing to third spot in the Billboard jazz list and claiming 17th place in the Billboard world music list.

The multi-talented Boggie has played at the Jazz Sur Seine festival in Paris and at several shows in New York, Frankfurt, Munich, the Netherlands as well as extensively touring her home country with her live band.

We caught up recently with Boggie during the promotion of her Eurovision song Wars for Nothing, in Amsterdam, where she explained when music took over her life "When I was a little girl I loved to sing and supported by my parents and teachers I was guided along the path to becoming a singer. Aged 12, I went to music school where at first I studied classical music and was given vocal training and playing piano. Five years later I attended a jazz conservatory for a further five years before finishing my musical studies in the only pop conservatoire in Budapest. It was here where I formed my first band and wrote my own jazz compositions.

"Since then I have done concerts and three years ago I decided to change my artiste’s name because I had only ever dreamt to an international singing career. I picked an artiste name ‘Boggie’ which is my nickname and Boglaika is a flower, which means buttercup in English.

"I wanted to leave the quartet because it was really jazzy and my music was not jazz any more. I like to think of my music as being a fantastic mix of everything that I learned and that I studied including jazz, classical, French chanson, American country and pop. My music is a great mixture of everything, So I left the quartet aged 24."

"My parents are workers and nobody in my family does music. Although my father was a big supporter of the arts and of music and always show me good ways and to support me Her early musical influences include Hungarian folk and on the pop front singers like Destiny’s Child, the Spice Girls and Mariah Carey.

Despite her success there was nobody more surprised at victory in the Hungarian final than Boggie as she explains: "I was very surprised when my song won the contest in Hungary because it is not a typical pop song. Hungarian people really like it when you sing in Hungarian as opposed to any other language, so it was really risky strategy, but the message worked really well.

"It’s a global song, it’s a healing ballad. I knew before the flash mob (in the promotional video), that my song is strong and the message is honest and clear, the message is honest. But when I did the flash mob with 200 people, I thought ‘oh my God, what music can do’!

She added: "While moving apartment recently I found a poem which I wrote when I was about 11, and it was a bit of a strange feeling because it was a child writing about saving the world through music.

"And my video clip which got so many hits made me realize the power of melody to influence people.

"I got hundreds of letters from people all over the world saying how important it had been to their lives. And it was in these moments that I realise this is my test, this is my job and I have a duty through music to make things better."
