Even though there are less Eurovision Stars celebrating their birthday this week, compared to last, there are still a lot of birthdays to celebrate: 15 in total! One of this week’s birthday girls has actually participated at Eurvision three times; Marie Bergman.
Today we have two more November birthday boys who celebrate their birthday. One comes from Israel and and is a real Eurovision Star, because it is his actual stag name. The other is from Malta, and sings about stars.
Renato Micallef, 67
Malta selected the singer Renato to be their representative at Eurovision Song Contest in 1975. Therefore he sang that song, “Singing this Song” on stage in Stockholm, where he placed 12th. He also would have taken part at Eurovison in 1990 with the song “Our Little World of Yesterday” but Malta withdrew.
Hovi Star, 32
Hovav Sekulets, better known as Hovi Star, won the HaKokhav HaBa, the Isreael national selection for Eurovision in 2015. He then performed at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm. He sang the song “Made of Star” in the second semi final and got the 7th place. Therefore the act advanced to the final and reached 14th place.
