EUROVISION 60th CELEBRATION – SONG 14 of 60

Next up is a real South African classic with around 15 people having covered it. It is the 1984 song IK HOU VAN JOU of Netherlands, originally sung by Maribelle. The song was introduced to South Africa 10 years after its Eurovision duet when Dana Winner covered it. We have picked the first Afrikaans cover done by boy band EDEN in 2001.

EURO COVERS FROM JAN FROM SLOVENIA

I am putting up a mail we just got from Jan from Slovenia. This is what we love and anybody you have done euro covers, no matter from what country and whatever song you did, we will feature it. This is the main purpose of the website, COVERS.
It’s Jan here from Slovenia, I noticed your website – first of all thanks for Ogae RoW FB team, who published my first Eurovision cover on their facebook page – it was Russian 2014 Eurovision entry “Shine”, which was covered by me & my little sister Linda, available here: http://soundcloud.com/vehar-jan/tolmachevy-sisters-shine-cover-by-jan-lindaA bit more than week ago I actually released one more cover, which is not really Eurovision, but it was part of Melodifestivalen 2007 – it’s “Cara Mia”, originally performed by Måns Zelmerlöw. Cover is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQN4_y3_AJk
If you can help us with promotion with boths songs, we would be more than thankful!Best regards,
Jan Vehar, Slovenia
