EUROVISION CONVENTION – LYS ASSIA

The 2017 Eurovision convention takes place 9 and 10 September in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In the NIGHT OF EUROVISION gala concert, a lot of artists will take to the stage. ESCCovers will highlight them one by one, hopefully getting to all of them before the event.

The first one is Lys Assia, a Swiss singer who won the first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 with the song REFRAIN, composed by Emile Gardez and Geo Voumard.

In 2007 she teamed up with Beatrice and they brought out a CD together, although it features just two songs in duet, but several evergreens from Lys.

We are sure she still has it to entertain Euro fans 62 years after her victory.
