During the on-going work on our project of searching for Eurovision covers in other languages by other artists, we came across Slovenian singer Nusa Derenda yesterday. She represented Slovenia at Eurovision in 2001 with the song ENGERY. We never knew she has performed so many Eurovision covers and last night listened/watched to several, among them Sweden 1999 (Take me to your heaven), Luxembourg 1972 (Apres toi), Sweden 1974 (Waterloo) and Germany 1982 (Ein bisschien frienden). It seems she concentrated on previous winners. Ein bisschien frieden was especially interesting with the song being partly in German and partly in Slovenian.
Each cover will be individually highlighted in the coming days – in our Eurovision cover series.
Charlotte represented Sweden in 1999 with TAKE ME TO YOUR HEAVEN and won the Eurovision song contest. Helena Blagne & Miran Rudan covered it in Slovenian.
