About the participant: 

Aija Andrejeva (born 16 January 1986 in Ogre, Latvia), better known by her stage name Aisha, is a Latvian singer.  Starting at the age of ten, she began taking flute and piano lessons at the Music School of Lielvarde. One year later, she started playing in the local brass band Sirius.

Aisha was doing a lot of things in her career, but in 2006, she started hosting the show of LTR Loves me - loves me not!  She also recorded her solo album together with Opus Pro. The record company was Microphone Records.  In 2007, Aisha participated in the LNT show "Two stars" and recorded new songs. She now performs as a solo artist.

In 2008, Aisha made her first solo album in collaboration, again with Microphone Records but with new record producers. Participation is planned in the highly-rated show Dance with a star 2!

In 2009, Aisha represented Latvia at the most popular contest in the former Soviet Union territories New Wave. She got 3d place. Microphone Records released her successful album Dveselite which has been nominated for the best Pop Album of the year 2009 at Latvian equivalent of the Grammys.

 

 

About the selection: 

Latvia and Latvijas Televīzija (LTV) eventually confirmed participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010.  This came after financial instability in Latvia and LTV, which could have resulted in a withdrawal of the country. However, after securing sponsorships and a co-operation agreement with the Ventspils City Council, a Latvian participation in the contest was secured. The Latvian entry was decided through the Eirodziesma, which was in February 2010.

Their were 10 songs in semi final, with just 3 of them selected by 100% public tele-voting to proceed to a super-final:

Dons - My Religion is Freedom
Ivo Grīsniņš - Grīslis Because I Love You
Aisha - What For? (Only Mr.God Knows Why)

 

Lyrics: 
I've asked my angels why
But they don't know
What for do mothers cry and rivers flow?
Why are the skies so blue, and mountains high?
What for is your love, always passing by?

I've asked my uncle Joe
But he can't speak
Why does the wind still blow and blood still leaks?
So many questions now with no reply
What for do people live until they die?

What for are we living?
What for are we crying?
What for are we dying?
Only Mr God knows why
What for are we living?
What for are we dreaming?
What for are we losing?
Only Mr God knows why
But his phone today is out of range

The sun in colour black is rising high
The time is turning back, I wonder why
So many questions now with no reply
What for do people live until they die?

What for are we living?
What for are we crying?
What for are we dying?
Only Mr God knows why
What for are we living?
What for are we dreaming?
What for are we losing?
Only Mr God knows why

What for are we living?
What for are we crying?
What for are we dying?
Only Mr God knows why
What for are we living?
What for are we dreaming?
What for are we losing?
Only Mr God knows why.
