May 20th 2002


Marlenna, Daphne, Emperatrizz and the Slovene delegation are already on the way to Tallinn.
In the week before the final concert of the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 (May 25 at 21.00) Sestre will have lots of promotional activities, performances and interviews.
And on May 25th we will all keep the fingers crossed. Good luck, Sestre!


This pop music group of transvestites has been active on the Slovene media scene for over two years. The members of the trio are: Daphne, a 27-year-old student of agronomy, also dancing for the Ljubljana Dance Theatre; Emperatrizz, a 22-year-old make-up artist and visagist, holder of the honourable title of the second runner-up at the European Miss Transvestite 1997 pageant; Marlena, a 22-year-old work therapy graduate from the medical college, also studying singing with Diego Barrios Ross. They started their career together as the "�trumpant'l Sisters" (The Suspender Sisters) and appeared successfully at various festivals and in TV shows. In 2002 they entered Emma 2002, the national contest preceding the Eurovision Song Contest. Together with the members of the Pe�ut family they created the song entitled "Samo ljubezen" (Only Love), designing the concept of their appearance and changing the name of the group which now radiates warmth, love and - of course - a funny undertone. Their visual appearance at the national contest was co-designed by Uro� Belanti� (Studio Oktober) and Meta Podkraj�ek.
At the Eurovision Song Contest 2002, the trio is representing SLOVENIA, a land of music and good people, the only country with LOVE in its name.

Srce veliko kakor svet
Nasmeh in iskrica v o�eh
In beseda, ki pozna� jo tudi ti.

V �ivljenju mnogo je poti
Ne i��i sre�e kjer je ni
Le poslu�aj kar srce ti govori.

Lahko ti podarim samo ljubezen
Eno in edino upanje
Poglej me v o�i in lahko si brez skrbi
Vem, da isto �uti� tudi ti
(saj jo v srcu �uti� tudi ti)

Kar �eli� si to ni greh
To je ljubezen v o�eh

Pozna� me bolj kot se ti zdi
�eprav zatiska� si o�i
Ko me gleda�, vidi� to kar si.

Dolgo �asa si iskal
Kar si mislil, da je prav
A na koncu le eno bo� izbral

Lahko ti podarim samo ljubezen
Eno in edino upanje
Poglej me v o�i in lahko si brez skrbi
Vem, da isto �uti� tudi ti
(saj jo v srcu �uti� tudi ti)
