Hera Björk “had that special something” at Eurovision 2010 — and she had it again when we caught up with her on the red carpet ahead of the Eurovision 2015 Opening Ceremony. The Icelandic Eurovision diva had spent the previous few months travelling between Chile, where she currently resides with her family, and Iceland in order to coach Iceland’s ESC 2015 singer María Ólafs.
Hera praised María’s hard work and open-minded attitude: “She’s working her ass off to do this as well as she can, as we all are, and it’s fantastic.”
María crashed out of the semi finals a few days later, and Hera had to work the press room afterwards when María headed back to the hotel. But we suspect her love for her job and María remain as strong as ever. Working as a vocal coach for young people clearly gives Hera a lot of joy. As she says, “Its all about the connection!”
