Earlier this month Jimmie Wilson joined the long list of Americans who have sung at Eurovision. This Detroit-born singer represented San Marino together with Eurovision royal Valentina Monetta, but failed to qualify to the final. The duo ended up last with only one point in the second semi-final of the contest.

This didn’t put Jimmie down. Shortly after Eurovision, he released his debut album So Damn Beautiful. The thirteen-track album doesn’t include his Eurovision entry “Spirit of the Night”, but it has everything from disco songs to big ballads.

The title track “So Damn Beautiful” was released two months ago together with a music video. While the song still has the same feel-good vibe as “Spirit of the Night”, musically it’s closer to rock.

Other songs on the album include “VIVA Forever”, a tribute song for the Polish celeb magazine VIVA!, and the emotional ballad “The Color Red” — a song dedicated to the victims of the Paris attack in November 2015.

During his performance at Eurovision, you might have noticed Jimmie promoting his album with the album title written on his shirt.

Right after the final of Eurovision 2017, San Marino’s Director General Carlo Romeo suggested that the country won’t be returning to the contest next year. While it might be the last time we see this microstate in the contest, we know that it won’t be the last we see of Jimmie Wilson!

Jimmie Wilson’s new album So Damn Beautiful can be found at the usual digital music stores.

The iPad Pro 2 is definitely one of the most anticipated tablets to hit the market this year. With a 12.9-inch screen and a price tag of $799, the iPad Pro 2 is conveniently placed against the Samsung Tab S3. We believe that the price tag will not be a deterrent for such a quality device

I really like this track from Jimmie and he looks just fine in the video. He did a great job with Valentina in Kyiv, they gave everything during that performance but I guess it wasn’t the right song to reach the final. I really liked the way Jimmie threw himself into the promotions with style, grace and humour, he looked to be having a ball and Valentina is always fun. Good luck with the album Jimmie!

I thought tey were both wasted on this typical Siegal track, but they did there best with it. He reminds me of Luther Vandross.

Is this a rare incident of product placement at Eurovision? I can only think of a few Casio keyboards from the 1990s

I do think many people actually liked the song, and it was sang very well. However it did not have enough impact to vote for. Like cool radio song you think to look for on Internet but you are in drive and its too much effort 😀

Sir just keep on great work. Will check the album.

I see the Robin Bengtsson inspiration in the title ;D
“So freaking/f*cking beautiful”
“So damn beautiful”
.

I wouldn’t be surprised if in Eurovision 2018 or in general we would see songs such as:
“So motherf*cking beautiful”
“So goddamn beautiful”
“So OhMyGodly beautiful”
And one different from those which may win
“So breathtakingly gorgeous”

As I replied to M_K , this song or title had no influences from Robin considering i wrote it more than one year ago.
Maybe He was inspired by me 🙂 or Christina ‘Beauitful’ or Joe Cocker ‘You Are So Beautiful’ or Shakira ‘Beautiful Lie’
Or Kristian ‘Beautiful Mess’ or
Madonna ‘Beautiful Stranger’

The list goes on… It’s a ‘title’
Just saying 😉
Lets just celebrate MUSIC! Peace

Interesting title. I wonder if he got the inspiration from Sweden this year?

So Damn Beautifil ( The Album) was completed in October 2016. Long before I even knew I would participate in ESC . I actually performed So Damn Beautiful on the Polish T.V Show Must Be The Music in 2016. https://youtu.be/PkSO85jBc2g

So, No inspiration from Sweden 🙂 Although, I do like Robin and his Song ‘I Can’t Go On’ Great song, Great Person!
