On Saturday 25 July 2020 ESC COVERS will launch the COVER2COVER competition. In category one are 14 songs by South African artists that are covers of EUROVISION songs (actual entries or selection songs or Eurovision related because of the original artist who was an entry at Eurovision or by the composers who had written a Eurovision entry). We will list all 14 in the next days, the Afrikaans cover plus the original song.

The twelfth song  is DAAR IS NIKS SOOS WARE LIEFDE by GROEP 2  plus the original singer UDO JURGENS of Austria also doing it in Afrikaans. His original German song WAHRE LIEBE IST GANZ LEISE is not on Youtube,

This is not an actual Eurovision entry. It was however composed by UDO JURGENS who participated no less than 3 times in the 60’s for Austria at the Eurovision song contest. This third time, in 1966 he actually won the contest with MERCI CHERI.
