Just in time before Eurovision 2015 is the Afrikaans cover of Belgium 2010 ME AND MY GUITAR originally sung by Tom Dice.
The Afrikaans is a direct translation and is called EK EN MY KITAAR. The singer is DIVAN VAN WYK, a grade 12 pupil at Florida Hoerskool. Last year he won the school’s Idol contest. He has a bright future in the recording industry ahead of him.
Finland felt a little left out since special compilations made for the other Nordic countries, so we sort of “forced” to also do one for Finland although of the 5 Nordic countries, the least covers exist but luckily, one song Lose control has several covers, even one in Spanish. This compilation will also be available in Vienna. And Gerry again designed a fantastic cover.
Yes, we are really into the groove of showcasing just how many songs have been covered in South Africa and this compilation has been done on the request of some SWEDISH composers – this is to once again remind Eurovision fans that it is a SONG CONTEST and a good song can be sung by any artist in any language. This compilation also highlight just how success Swedish composers are as it feature Eurovision songs they have written for countries other than Sweden. Gerry from the USA once again created a special cover design.
We have another special CD for Vienna. It is called ICELAND IDOLS and it feature Icelandic euro songs covered in South Africa. The CD was a once off copy in Copenhagen but I had requests for more so a limited amount have been done and will be available in Vienna. Thanks again to R O W member Gerry of the USA for doing such a beautiful cover.
It is time for the 5th cover in our series of the 6 compilation CD’s of celebrate the fact that EUROVISION has reached 60th shows. Our theme is bridges and Gerry of the USA designed a fantastic series of covers, using famous bridges in 6 Rest of the world countries. These 6 were picked as they present the 6 countries with the most members of our club. We already has South Africa, Australia, United States of America and Costa Rica. Would you have guessed correctly from which country comes the 5th bridge? It is Venezuela
