Today, Tix has finally released a video for the Norwegian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, ‘Fallen Angel’.
The video is a very moving story about a boy, presumed to be Tix at school and the bullying he receives for having Tourette’s Syndrome. The video is touching but not preachy.
There is no cure for Tourette’s and no single most effective medication. In most cases, medication for tics is not necessary, but it is estimated 1% of people suffer from the infliction.
Tix will perform Fallen Angel in ninth place in the first semi final on May 18, 2021. He won the right to represent Norway, after winning the Melodi Grand Prix on February 20, 2021.
Enjoy the video below.
