Alex Panayi from Cyprus at #wiwijam
Alex is one of the most acclaimed singers in the Mediterranean, having sung for Cyprus twice at the contest — in 1995 and in 2000. Since then Eurovision delegations all over Europe have called on him to whip their acts into shape, with Alex serving as a vocal coach, backing vocalist or vocal director for Helena Paparizou, Sakis Rouvas, Litesound and Uzari & Maimuna — just to name few. This year he’s working his magic with Russia’s Sergey Lazarev.

Adults loves Alex and so do the children.
At Junior Eurovision 2014 he wrote Sophia Patsalides’ entry “I pio omorfi mera” — which won with the Wiwi Jury and stamped Sophia’s place as one of Europe’s rising stars.
He also served as a judge on the Eurovision Song Project, Cyprus’ Eurovision selection in 2015. He is a true Eurovision legend and now he will take the stage at Hard Rock Cafe!
