She’ll sing for Romania in the second semifinal of Eurovision 2019 in less than four weeks.
But before she makes a final stop in Tel Aviv, Ester Peony stopped by the Dutch and Spanish capitals to join her Eurovision 2019 colleagues on a promo tour. Sadly neither of these events took place on a Sunday.
Last Friday she caught up with wiwibloggs ahead of her performance at Madrid’s PrePartyES. Wearing a striking all-black look, she stuck to the dark mood she brings in “On a Sunday”. However, her interview suggests she was a little ray of sunshine in cloudy Madrid that day.
In her second interview with our wiwiblogger Deban, she revealed a heart-warming story behind her stage name: “My mother’s last name means “flower” in Romanian language, and peonies are flowers. I wanted to make a connection. It was pretty emotional from me – I wanted to be with her all the time.”
She will bring a total of five people on stage with her: two dancers, a guitarist and her two girls (presumably backing vocalists).
“I’m so excited to be there! I love singing, I love music, I love everything that’s happening to me and I’m so grateful for this. The sound on the stage will be very very cool”
They say that within our dreams and aspirations we find opportunities, but who did Ester Peony take notes from? Aside from the regular top guns of the music industry such as Whitney Houston and Sam Smith, Ester Peony’s love for music and Eurovision blossomed after Loreen’s Eurovision 2012 winning performance in Baku.
“I’m a very optimistic person, and yes, at that time I was thinking that maybe one time I will be on that stage as well – and look where I am. Let it rain!”
The star also shared her opinion about some of this year’s acts.
” I like very much Duncan Lawrence, Katerine Duska and Hatari from Iceland. Music is music and I like all of them.”
