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 fifth song is DIT IS ‘N WONDER by DANA WINNER plus the original song HET IS EEN WONDER by LINDA WILLIAMS.
This is a Eurovision entry. LINDA WILLIAMS represented THE NETHERLANDS in 1981 at the Eurovision song contest. Dana Winner, from Belgium, covered it in Afrikaans.
It took almost 22 years but finally the CD single of the 1995 selecting song DET VACKRASTE by Cecilia Vennersten is in the ESC Covers collection. This song was a major hit and many fans thought it was better than the actual song SE PA MEJ by Jan Johansen. Both rank among the best songs ever to come from Sweden. This song in various covers are already in the collection
One more time- Living in a dream (English)
Frans Bauer – ‘n Lied voor iedereen (Dutch)
Dana Winner – I’ll sing a song today (English)
Dana Winner – Ik zing vandaag een lied (Flemish)
Dana Winner – Ein lied for diese welt (German)
And hopefully an Afrikaans cover can be added soon
