Belgium - City Lights - Blanche

Digital release image

RTBF, the Wallonian broadcaster for Belgium, selected Blanche as the singer to represent the country in Kyiv.
The song, City Lights, is written by Blanche and Pierre Dumoulin.
The song was released as a digital single on March 8

Blanche (real name Ellie Delvaux) starred on the 2016 season of The Voice Belgique and made it to the live shows. She didn't proceed to the final.
Blanche is currently working on her debut EP which will undoubtedly include the Eurovision entry.

Promo Issues
A 1-track promo (cd-r) was used in Kyiv but it's a low quality home made affair. Just a blank disc with a sticker in a plastic sleeve with printed insert in a thin plastic sleeve. (No record company mentioned on disc or sticker)
Easy to reproduce so beware of fakes. And spending a lot of cash on it is not a good idea anyway.
A Franch promo made for radio has the name and title printed on the disc and comes with a printed insert in a plastic sleeve. (Le Label/Pias promo)

DRI Acoustic version
An acoustic version of City Lights was released on July 14 (digital).
