Today we celebrate a Eurovision winner who turns 55! We also send our congratulations to another top 5 finisher! So; two Eurovision birthdays today, and they are both girls! One is born in the early 60s, the other is exactly 30 years younger! And though there are only two birthday girls, we have to send our greetings to three countries…
Fionnuala Sherry (Secret Garden), 55
Fionnuala represented Norway in the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, as part of the group Secret Garden. They won the contest with their beautiful ballad “Nocturne”. Fionnuala is Irish, but has worked with Norwegian Rolf Løvland on the Secret Garden project since 1995.
Safura represented Azerbaijan at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo. She finished 5th with the song “Drip Drop”.
All of us here at escXtra wish both Fionnuala and Safura the very best of birthdays!
