Cezar Ouatu, who represented Romania at Eurovision 2013, and Pasha Parfeny and Aliona Moon, who represented Moldova in 2012 and 2013, surprised their fans with new songs celebrating the holiday season.
Cezar released “Craciunul magic” (Magic Christmas), which he wrote himself especially for the occasion. It is a sensitive carol, delivered in the countertenor’s signature operatic style, about the fairytale atmosphere of the winter holiday and the joy it brings to the rich and the poor alike.
Pasha Parfeny and Aliona Moon opted for a duet, covering Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, with Romanian lyrics. Their voices blend wonderfully together and, although it’s not a Christmas song per se, “Aleluia” certainly sounds like a carol in their interpretation. We’ve certainly missed their voices!
What do you think? Which one’s your favorite?
