On 23rd August 2020 we (ESC Covers, EuroVisionMusic, Eurovision Coverage and Destination Eurovision) started publishing pictures of VICTOR BUSH modeling a Eurovision t-shirt and holding the promo material for that entry. It is to make artists aware of entering the COVER2COVER SINGING contest we are arranging – closing date for entries is 30th October 2020. We have also shot short videos and that we have uploaded the first few on our Youtube channel. We will publish this at random and the forth one is from GREECE 2005 – MY NUMBER ONE of HELENA PAPARIZOU. This turned out to be the winner that year. In total we will publish for 40 days in a row a different t-shirt.
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 nineth video is HELENA PAPARIZOU from GREECE (who won the 2005 Eurovision song contest for her country with MY NUMBER ONE, teamed up with SERGEY LAZAREV of RUSSIA, covering his Eurovision entry from 2016 – YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE.
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 nineth song is JY IS DIE EEN by HI 5 plus the original song MY NUMBER ONE by HELENA PAPARIZOU.
This is a Eurovision entry. HELENA PAPARIZOU won the Eurovision song contest in 2005 for GREECE. It is as of today still their only victory. HI 5 covered it in Afrikaans along with at least 5 other Eurovision entries.
Helena Paparizou is back with a brand new song called Mila mou (Talk to me). It is an atmospheric and contemporary track with some latin beats and nice guitar and trumpet sounds.
Mila mou is composed by Kim Diamantopoulos, Helena Paparizou and keepitpure. The executive producer is Nektários Kokkinos.
Helena won the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest for Greece with My Number One. She was also part of the Antique duo in the 2001 Eurovision with (I Would) Die For You, where they finished in third place for Greece.
You can see the official music video for Mila mou below.
