A SINGER CELESTE BUCKINGHAM IS SUCCESSFUL BEYOND THE BORDERS
More than five million hits on music server YouTube, fourteen weeks in the top positions of the official Czech and Slovak charts of the most played songs in the radios and now the nomination for the MTV EMA (European Music Award) 2012 in the category of Best Czech / Slovak Act. Such is the balance of the seventeen-year old Celeste Buckingham’s song, ‘Run Run Run’. This song is currently gaining success in countries of the Middle East and North Africa. It was used as a musical accompaniment for the September teaser, on an independent pan-Arab satellite television channel MBC 2 from MBC GROUP. Adding to that, many of Celeste´s listeners and fans come from countries as far as the US, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries, but also countries in Europe such as Hungary and Poland, where Celeste also plans to break through with her Album ‘Don´t Look Back’.

Despite the skeptical jury she surprisingly passed to the finals. Soon she was knocked out and forgotten as dozens of other more or less talented finalists. But not for long when she was on the front of the charts, catapulted by her first single ‘Nobody Knows’ and the second song from the debut album ‘Don’t Look Back’, an energetic song called ‘Run Run Run’, written by Celeste and produced by her producers Martin Šrámek and Andrej Hruška, literally took care of the sensation..
