TAKING KEiiNO on a virtual trip across Europe and beyond – Day 3 – Rome, Italy

 

KEiiNO (members Alexandra Rotan, Tom Hugo and Fred Buljo) was selected directly for the final of the 2021 Norwegian Eurovision selection. Their song is called MONUMENT. KEiiNO is very much a fan based group and during their 2019 campaign traveled across Europe to perform their 2019 Eurovision entry Spirit in the sky to their fans in various countries. Due to the Corona pandemic, such a tour is not possible this year and so ESC Covers has decided to take them on a virtual tour for the next 2 or so weeks across Europe. Day 3 brings us to ROME, ITALY  and to probably one of the most recognized monument or landmark there, the Colosseum.

The ESC Covers team of Roy van der Merwe, Ian Fowell and Barry Tsai are arranging this virtual tour.

Sara Dall’Olio has released her first official single. It is a cover of the famous masterpiece of a song, Caruso, made famous by artists like Lara Fabian. The track is from the forthcoming debut album by Sara due to be released in early 2021.

Sara truly deserves this success after winning many top prizes and awards representing Italy at international music festivals around the world. The album will be called ‘Debut’ and will be produced by David Serero, the famous baritone opera singer, producer and actor. Sara met with David at the Adagio Festival in Odessa, Ukraine in 2019. He was very impressed by Sara and her voice and decided to produce her first album.

Her second single has already been decided and it will be an Italian cover of the Whitney Houston classic, I Have Nothing called Non Ho Niente. The ‘Debut’ album will feature cover versions of Italian and American standards and evergreens which will showcase Sara’s powerful and crystal clear vocals. Sara was set to record the album in New York, where David Serero’s studios are based. However, due to the current world health situation the instrumental backing tracks were recorded there and Sara recorded her vocals in Italy at the Cosascuola Recording Studio.

Sara has come a long way since representing San Marino at the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest as a member of The Peppermints.

Congratulations to Sara and we are sure we will be hearing a lot more of Sara in the future. This is just the beginning of her journey!
