Earlier this year, Elisa won the Portuguese ticket to the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest that was due to be held in Rotterdam. “Medo de Sentir” placed second in both the televote and the national jury vote in March’s Festival da Canção. Once the votes were combined, Elisa was awarded victory ahead of runner-up Bárbara Tinoco’s “Passe-Partout”.
Elisa sings with all of her heart
As a result, Elisa signed to Warner Music Portugal and the Madeira-born singer has been hard at work on her follow-up material. Released today, “Coração” (“Heart”) is Elisa’s second official single and is the follow-up to her Festival da Canção 2020 winning entry “Medo de Sentir”. The new track was written by Elisa herself alongside LEFT, with production taken care of by LEFT and Mikkel Solnado.
Elisa for Eurovision 2021?
Whilst Portugal have yet to confirm participation in Eurovision Song Contest 2021, Elisa revealed in late March, following the cancellation of the 2020 contest, that she had not been invited back by RTP at the time of the interview. Nothing is certain, but it is currently expected that RTP will choose to host a new edition of Festival da Canção should Portugal participate in Rotterdam next year.
