STAR OF THE WEEK is a project by INFE South Africa and INFE Ireland, in which throughout the week the attention is focused on 1 singer, duo or group.
Gigliola Cinquetti is this week’s STAR OF THE WEEK and today’s song is:
Non Ho l’Età, the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1964, written by Mario Panzeri and Nicola Salerno. The song had also won that year’s Sanremo Music Festival. Gigliola Cinquetti was sixteen years old, making her the youngest Eurovision winner in history until 1986 when Belgium’s Sandra Kim won the contest with J’aime La Vie. Non Ho l’Età” became a success in Italy, the rest of Europe and other countries worldwide. Gigliola Cinquetti also recorded the song in English (This is My Prayer), Spanish (No Tengo Edad), French (Je Suis à Toi), German (Luna Nel Blu) and Japanese (Yumemiru Omoi). The song has since been recorded by a wide range of artists in other languages.
