Lina and Frank meet during his concert in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2016. The female singer and her live band perform as a warm up act. She invites him to sing on her track and after a year, the collaboration becomes a dream come true for the female artist. "Frank is one of the best artists I've seen perform live. It looks so effortless and so natural to him but it's more than that - a lot of hard work and dedication." says Lina.
