After weeks of speculation, RTVE has finally answered Eurofan dreams. Today it confirmed that the hotly-tipped Edurne — full name Edurne García Almagro — will sing for Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015! Edurne, who we first reported on back in December, is a fantastic choice. She’s fresh and modern — and lady can sing! Her song “Amanecer” (Sunrise), has been written by Eurovision veteran Tony Sánchez-Olhsson.
The press conference is taking place now. You can watch it here.
Team Wiwi have been getting super-hyped ever since Edurne’s manager said she was interested in competing at Eurovision.
Edurne has held a successful television career alongside her music and we’ve no doubt she’s going to werk it out on stage in Vienna.
Edurne at the press conference today:
What’s her composer’s background?
Olhsson will be recognised by most for producing Pastora Soler’s 10th place 2012 entry ‘Quedaté Conmigo’.
He also entered four songs at the Spanish national selection in 2010.
Olhsson might have served up fierce ballads for Brequette and Pastora, but he can also throw it down on the dance floor with D’NASH. After watching Edurne’s Shakira cover on Your Face Sounds Familiar we know she’s gonna be amazing!
