LINDA WILLIAMS represented THE NETHERLANDS at the 1981 Eurovision song contest with the song HET IS EEN WONDER. She has covered a NON EUROVISION song which was a big hit for NANA MOUSOURI, who herself participated in the 1963 Eurovision song contest for Luxembourg. The song Linda has covered is LA PROVANCE  which Ralph Siegel composed and Bernd Meinunger wrote the German lyrics. Linda’s cover is called IN DE LENTE. It is the 7th song in our series.


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.


AFRI MUSIC SONG CONTEST – 5th SA registration (Tobi Jooste)

Pre-registration to the Afri music song contest opened on Friday 4 August and will close on 3 October – so artists have a full two months to register. Pre registration is very easy, takes about 1 minute and is FREE. It is, however, important to register as soon as possible so planning can be done. It is also important for sponsors, as they are looking to see what the interest is among the various countries. We also will give promotion in the 2 months and it is obvious we can only give promotion to artists once they have registered as we will do today over about 5 hours by focusing on the first 5 SOUTH AFRICAN artists who have registered. Starting with TOBI JOOSTE who was the artist to be the 5th one to register. Tobi is a singer from Johannesburg and has been singing professionally for over 10 years. Tobi’s first CD contained at least euro cover in Afrikaans – Netherlands 1981 (Het is een wonder of Linda Williams) as well as a Dutch selection song – Een beetje van dit of Vulcano. Over the years Tobi has covered several other Euro songs. He has also done original songs successfully. We wait to see what songs Tobi will enter when song entries open in November.
