Senhit from the music video of ‘Waterloo’

Senhit has released the latest of her regular #FreakyTripToRotterdam project with a cover of Waterloo by ABBA (the 1974 Eurovision winning song). She has definitely done a complete rehaul of the song with her own unique version and dramatic and ‘freaky’ styles. Maybe it is not for all tastes but credit Senhit for trying something different.

Senhit was chosen to represent San Marino at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Freaky! until the show was cancelled due to the world health pandemic. She also represented them in 2011 with Stand By. However, she will get the chance again to represent San Marino at the 2021 Eurovision.

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!

You can hear Caruso below and the track is available to purchase or stream from digital stores such as Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and more.

Senhit has released her version of Congratulations by Cliff Richard (1968 ESC United Kingdom). It is definitely different and maybe a little ‘eccentric’ but I guess that is the sort of spin she wanted to put on the song!

Regarding the music video for Congratulations, Senhit advised “This is the vision of what would happen if Federico Fellini and David Bowie would join my birthday party”.

Special thanks to the Electric Light artist Marco Lodola for his astonishing masterpieces Jimi, John, Ziggy and Freddie.

Senhit was selected to represent San Marino at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Freaky but due to the coronavirus mayhem, the contest was cancelled. She will, however, get another chance to sing for San Marino in the 2021 edition of Eurovision. Senhit did represent San Marino at the 2011 Eurovision with Stand By.
