For the entire month of February, ESC Covers will take every day a South African artist/group/duo on a virtual tour to Europe plus. We will visit 28 countries.
In a moment like this is the 2010 Eurovision entry for Denmark. It was covered by Henry van Dyk (from South Africa) and Dina Garipova (from Russia) in Afrikaans, Russian and English. Dina represented Russia at Eurovision in 2013.
We start off with the first of ten categories of the AFRI FRIEND awards 2017. The category is BEST FULL CD BY A MALE SINGER.
The criteria for CD’s to be considered are
a – Obviously it has to be by a male singer (although a couple of duets are allowed on the CD)
b – 60% or more of the songs have to be in Afrikaans
c – At least one song has to be cover (Eurovision or otherwise)
d – Released after 1 January 2016 but before 31 October 2017
So far 4 CD’s are being considered (and as we discover more that fulfill the criteria, they will be added to this post
01 – DEON GROOT – GEE MY OOR
02 – DIRK LAZENBY – SONSKYN LIEFDE
03 – ERNIE BATES – DROOM
04 – ANDRE VAN WYNGAARDT – DIE ENGELE HAAL ASEM
05 – HENRY VAN DYK – SOMMER SO
In a moment like this – Jay & Lianie May

Besides the 6 compilation CDs to celebrate the fact that Eurovision is 60 years old (the covers of these 6 will be posted soon — Gerry is still finishing his designs), we have a few copies left of the compilation CDs we had in 2014 in Copenhagen. These will be made available in Vienna. The first up is the compilation – EUROVISION WE SING YOUR SONGS VOL 9 – this CD contains Euro covers of 2013 songs and just 2 copies are still available.
