Fire and desire! That sums up eurofan passion for Miss Marta Sánchez, a regular on everyone’s shortlist to represent Spain at Eurovision. Earlier this year, the artist delayed the release of her most recent album “21 días“, stoking rumours that she may sing in Wiener Stadthalle and bring Eurovision glory back to the Iberians after 46 years of ups and downs (and even more downs). Marta eventually and officially squashed all the rumours, denying that RTVE had ever approached her about Eurovision 2015.
The well-known singer, identified by many as the “Queen of Spanish Pop”, has released a steady stream of EPs and albums since 1993’s “Mujer“. After hitting #1 in the charts all over Spain and Latin America with singles like “Colgando en tus manos” (“Hanging in your hands”), singing at the world’s most-watched live music show would be the icing on the cake.
She has shown interest in waving the Spanish flag at Eurovision more than once, saying that if she’s chosen, she would “defend her entry to the death”. Marta also described Eurovision as “a unique contest, where many artists that I respect have taken part, and with unparalleled production”.
The last word will come from RTVE, and rumours will likely spread until that moment Any bets on Marta?
