An Xtra Happy Birthday; 21 June!

Greetings to Spain and Czech Republic!

Yesterday on 20th of June two Eurovision singers celebrated their birthday. Today there are also two Eurovision artist that have a birthday. The birthday lady was one of the four winners of Eurovision 1969. And the birthday guy was part of his country debut act. Josef Vojtek and Salomé where born on this day!

Salomé, 59

In 1969, Spain selected Salomé to be their representative in their home country at Eurovision. That is the contest was held in Madrid. Therefore she sang the  “Vivo cantando” on the stage. At the end of the show, four countries were tied in the first place. And at that time there were no rules how to brake a tie, which means that all four entries won that year. Spain was one of these four countries!

Josef Vojtek, 53

Czech Republic selected the rock band Kabát in 2007 to be their debut act at Eurovision Song Contest. Josef is the lead vocalist of that band. Therefore they performed the song “Malá Dáma” at the semi final in Helsinki, Finland. Despite that a rock song won the year before, this song did not fit well with the voters, as it got only one point at the contest.

We all here at escXtra would like to wish the two of them the very best on their special day!
