During the lock down in Europe over the Eurovision period in May, many Eurovision singers did home videos of other Eurovision artists songs. In the wake of ESC COVERS COVER2COVER singing competition, we will feature some of these so South African artists in particular can get an idea how it is done. Nor Bert of EuroVisionMusic picked the ones as he followed the whole series.
The second video is DADI FREYR from the ICELAND ( who would have taken part in Eurovision 2020 with THINK ABOUT THINGS had it not been cancelled), covering the Eurovision entry from CYPRUS 2018 – FUEGO of ELENI FOUREIRA.
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.
