After impressing audiences as the youngest contestant Samra enrolled at Azerbaijan State University of Culture and Arts.

Samra returned to the spotlight in 2015, when she reached the quarterfinals in The Voice of Turkey. When The Voice came to Azerbaijan in 2015, her performance of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ballduring a blind audition amazed the audience. Samra reached the competition’s final.

Lyrics:

English

You got in my head, boy, like a song
That I kept on singing, all along
But the radio stopped to play us long ago, long ago

Guess I’ve had enough, boy, guess I’m done
Like a burning fire, now it’s gone
Thought I saw myself in you
I made a mistake,
there’s nothing to say
I’m walking away

Gonna take a miracle, oh oh
Gonna take a miracle to heal this love
Baby I won’t stay another night
This time I say good bye, I’m letting you go

Gonna take a miracle, oh oh

It was a one way road for you and I
Yeah, we built this castle based on lies
And now we have hit the point of no return
We crash and we burn, you live and you learn

Gonna take a miracle, oh oh
Gonna take a miracle to heal this love
Baby I won’t stay another night
This time I say good bye, I’m letting you go

Gonna take a miracle, oh oh
Gonna take a miracle to save us now
And I won’t pretend to be alright
my heart is on the line, our end is my start

Gonna take a miracle, oh oh
Gonna take a miracle to save us now

Gonna take a miracle, oh oh
Gonna take a miracle to save us now
