The Georgian act, Group Candy, winners of the 2011 Junior Eurovision Song Contest have released a new song and video with new singer, Lizi-Pop. The video has a festive feel. It is called Zgapari Qalaqshi. It is a song about a fairytale and Candy girls are dressed as Santa’s helpers.
Zgapari Qalaqshi is a Georgian version of the 70s American group, Earth, Wind & Fire song, After The Love Has Gone. The song has a fantasty and Christmas theme with Father Christmas making an appearance and lots of presents being opened.
