A bit late but better late than never – a few days ago it was the birthday of MAXI GARDEN. She turned 46. In 1988 she and her mother Chris represented GERMANY at the Eurovision song contest with a song called LIED FUR EINEN FREUND. Ralph Siegel composed it and Bernd Meininger wrote the lyrics. It is the number 1 Eurovision song of all time of ESC COVERS.
Daði Freyr, who was selected to represent ICELAND at the 2020 Eurovision song contest, is celebrating his birthday today. And with it comes the news that his song THINK ABOUT THINGS is still in the UK top 40.
Today is also the birthday of MICHAEL BALL from the UNITED KINGDOM. He represented his country at the 1992 Eurovision song contest. He performed ONE STEP OUT OF TIME. His biggest hit was a song called LOVE CHANGED EVERYTHING which ESC Covers regard as the best song from a Eurovision male singer, but not his Eurovision entry.
PETRA FREY, who represented AUSTRIA at the 1994 Eurovision song contest with a fantastic song Fur den frieden der welt, is having a birthday today. This song is ESC Covers number 1 ranked song for 1994 and of all the Austrian entries. She also recorded fantastic duets with several artists, and we feature INNO DÁMORE with Andreas.
The last birthday we are reporting on comes from LINDA WILLIAMS. She represented the Netherlands in 1981 at the Eurovision song contest with HET IS EEN WONDER. This song is the 4th most loved song from ESC COVERS of all Eurovision entries.
We do not follow all the artist birthdays on ESC Covers but today a lot of artists are having birthdays and 3 of them are inside our top 100 of all time with their Eurovision entries. We start off with DIDRIK SOLLI-TANGEN from Norway. He sang MY HEART IS YOURS on home soil in 2010.
