Cristina Scarlat, Moldova’s Eurovision Song Contest 2014 representative who failed to qualify for the Grand Final with “Wild Soul” but left a lasting impression with her Mulan-inspired show, is back with a duet, together with Aurel Chirtoaca.
“Dragostea vine de sus” (Love Comes From Above), a Romanian language power ballad that sounds like a Christmas carol, has been released just in time for the Winter Holidays.
Aurel Chirtoaca (33), a well-known singer in Moldova, has been a veteran of the national selection O melodie pentru Europa. His record is 7th place in 2013. This year, he is a member of the jury who just shortlisted 50 songs out of the 68 submitted for the 2105 contest.
After “Suspans”, which was also featured in our end-of-year list, Cristina Scarlat did a 180 again and recorded this vintage duet that makes us want to sit by the Christmas tree with a loved one.
The voices of the two singers blend beautifully and Cristina’s especially shines through. The lyrics speak of the miracle of love, which seems to come from heaven.
