San Marino - Who We Are - Jessika feat. Jenifer Brening

Digital Release Image
17 - 28 pts in semi 2

Valentina wasn't available this year so for the first time in history the Italy-locked country San Marino organized a complicated national selection titled 1in360.
The final, held in Bratislava, Slovakia! was won by Jessika ft. Jenifer Brening. They performed their song Who We Are in the Lisbon contest. Listen here at 1in360's Youtube.

A first version was available as a video on but for the digital release (and Eurovision?) a new version was made.
The digital single was released on March 30, along with a karaoke version.

The original version of Who We Are was presented (live) with Irol as the rapper. He was the only Sammarinese artists in the competition but decided against competing in the final.
Irol's raps were in Italian whereas Jenifer does her thing in English.

#whoweare Run on Lisbon
#whoweare is a song by Jessika feat. Jenifer Brening that serves both as San Marino's Eurovision 2018 entry and as the theme song for Jessika's fund-raising drive to raise awareness for online bullying.

Jessika and Jenifer will take part in running events across Europe. The runs will culminate in a “#whoweare Run on Lisbon” on May 5, 2018.  Any and all money raised will be donated to the Diana Award, an anti-bullying charity founded in the memory of the Princess of Wales.
The run will see them on April 7 in London (Queen Elisabeth Olympic Park) and in Madrid on April 22 (The Weekend- Rock'n'Roll Marathon Series)
