Biography

An unknown force in the music industry is definitely not the way to describe Alex Christensen. DJ, producer, composer, BMI AND ECHO award winner along with other diverse award nominations are some of the titles Mr. Christensen holds under his belt.


Alex Christensen

With his Groundbreaking idea for the song Das Boot in 1991 in a Techno version, Alex revolutionized the techno music scene by making techno, chart compatible. Das Boot became number 1 on the charts in more than 22 countries worldwide and was number 1 on the German charts for 13 weeks (at that time holding the record for the 2nd longest number 1 chart position). With U96 Alex sold more than 15 million records.

Alex was also featured alongside Christina Appelgate and James Marshall in the film Cyberman. Adding acting to his many diversified talents. Alex has disc jockeyed alongwith DJ icons including Sven Väth, Westbam, and Moby worldwide.As a producer, from the 1990’s to now he has produced for artists including Right Said Fred, Marky Mark, Jose Carreras, Paul Anka, Tom Jones, Michael Bolton, N’Sync, U96, ATC, Sarah Brightman, Natasha Thomas, Rollergirl, Yvonne Catterfeld, Fady Maalouf and Udo Lindenberg.

With the band BROSIS (winners of the German Series Popstars) Alex served on the shows jury and produced a single for the band that sold 800,000 units in only 2 days time. Adding to Alex’s impressive credits, his single for ATC Around the World was Germany’s most heavily rotated radio single, since he was beaten by Kylie Minogue.

Following Alex’s fifth number one single with Du hast den schönsten Arsch der Welt and album Euphorie he has stayed true to his signature style, mixing dance music and German text. Alex C. featuring” Yass” has proven to be a hit in Germany and Europe wide.

Alex has proven that his combination of German text and Eurodance is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.Alex’s musical spectrum encompasses the entire span of Dance and techno music. With the success of his production work on two of Paul Anka’s albums, including duets with Michael Bublé and Sammy Davis Junior , Rock Swings was nominated for a Grammy,and achieved double platinum status. For Michael Bolton (two time Grammy winner, four time nominee for best pop/vocal male, with sales over 52 million units worldwide, and six time American music award winner) he produced Bolton Swings Sinatra.

After this success Alex continues to evolve in the swing and dance genres seeking theright person to interpret his musical vision. In Oscar he has found an outstanding talent and collaborator.


Oscar Loya

Oscar’s career is a typical example of the American Dream. The youngest of five children, Oscar was raised in a single parent household on the wrong side of town. Hismother struggled to make ends meet and make sure her children didn’t fall to the product of growing up in a Southern California barrio.

Oscar used his artistic passion for the arts as his key to escape such meager beginnings. After successful career stints as a talented fashion designer, and hair/makeup artist, he finally found his niche by heeding the advice of those around him and making the switch from background to foreground.

Determined not to let a lack of formal training hold him back, at age 24 he left everything behind and moved to New York to finally realise his dream of performing. Being new on the scene was not an issue for Oscar. Only one month after having lived in the Big Apple he was stopped by a famous Broadway producer/choreographer on the street and was asked three questions, “Can you sing? Can you act? Can you dance?” The answer was a resounding “Hell Yeah!”.

Oscar honed his singing, dancing, and acting skills on internationally renowned stages in cities including Bologna, Rotterdam, Vienna, Seoul, Beijing, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Berlin,Köln, and Munich. Oscar’s International experience combined with his skills and remarkable energy, form the basis of continuing his transition from musical star to world class pop star.

With the track Miss Kiss Kiss Bang it has become possible to successfully combine Alex’s superb abilities as producer, composer, and author with Oscar’s extraordinary talent as a performer.

Biography

Soraya Arnelas was born in Valencia de Alcántara, in the Spanish region of Extremadura, on 13 September 1982. Her career as an artist started in 2005, after she had become the most popular finalist of the TV programme “Operación Triunfo.” Since then, Soraya’s record trajectory has been meteoric, with four albums made with the record company Vale Music/Universal Music Spain.

Her debut came with Kike Santander’s production for her first album, Corazón de fuego - a mix of Latin themes with other genres such as ballads and pop dance,which achieved Platinum Disc status in Spain in 2006. In 2007 the second album Ochenta’s was released and contained versions of great hits from the 1980’s. Soraya was awarded a new Platinum Disc for this album.

After this success, one year later, she released Dolce Vita, with new themes of the best dance music. And last year, 2008, she went once again into the recording studio to bring to life unpublished themes on her fourth album, “Sin Miedo,” which consolidated Soraya’s own style.

Soraya was an air stewardess. She speaks English, French and Portuguese, and also outside of her music career collaborates with humanitarian organisations in aid of children.

The Spanish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest is entitled La noche es para mí (The night is for me). It has the quality of being a song specially written to please a wide range of European tastes. On the one hand, it is connected to western pop sounds, with a musical dance base which is always a point of reference in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Soraya’s song also includes a mixture of ethnic sounds. There is a great deal of mixed music, particularly Latin sounds, thanks to the strains of the Spanish guitar, it is also reminiscent of eastern music and sounds typical of Scandinavian and Eastern European countries.

Another important element are the lyrics of the song, which combine on a 50-50 basis the strong characteristics of Spanish with the chorus sung in English, thus giving the song a clear international character.

Biography

There are few singers able to transcend beyond the TV show that made their name. But for Jade Ewen the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest will be the springboard for her success. Regardless of whether she wins in Moscow this May, Jade’s incredible talent ensures her a fantastic future in the music industry.

As Ewen, 21, so effortlessly proved during the four weeks of the selection process in the United Kingdom, Eurovision: Your Country Needs You, she is one of the finest vocalists the United Kingdom has produced in years. With the technical prowess of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey , the classical timelessness of Diana Ross and the eternal cool of Donna Summer, Jade’s forthcoming solo album will deliver classic pop ballads with edgy electro R&B.

Combining an outstanding vocal performance with cutting-edge choreography and melody-driven singles, Jade will embody the current mood in music, credible cool with a mainstream twist. Smart, stylish and extraordinarily gifted, the determined Ewen has the talent, the tenacity and the team behind her to become one of 2009’s most successful singers.

Born and raised in Plaistow, East London to a Jamaican mother and British/ Sicilian father, Jade had a challenging childhood. Her dad is blind and her mum suffers from Myasthenia Gravis, leaving her partially bind and deaf. Yet being the primary carer to her parents and two younger siblings has given Jade a pragmatic, ambitious outlook on life. Since a 3 year-old singing in her grandma’s garden, Jade has systematically set her sights on turning her musical dreams into reality. With both parents unable to work and existing on disability benefits, money was far from flowing in the Ewen household.

Approached by a drama school who recognised her potential, Jade practiced and rehearsed relentlessly in order to win one of the precious few scholarships on offer. As a teenage attendee of Sylvia Young Theatre School, she appeared in The Bill, Casualty and Mr. Harvey Lights A Candle, before perfecting her onstage skills in The Lion King. A gifted singer and dancer, Jade had a brief spell in the girl group Trinity Stone, before going solo. Despite being unsigned at the time, acclaimed producer Kwame (Missy/ Mary J. Blige), was so impressed with the music he heard on Jade's MySpace, he invited her to record with him in New York.

A few months later, and Jade was approached about the Eurovision Song Contest. Initially unsure of what to expect, all doubts were cast aside when she learnt that Andrew Lloyd Webber and Diane Warren were involved. Her dazzling performance of Warren and Lloyd Webber’s It’s My Time in the final week saw Jade storm the voting polls to be crowned as Great Britain’s representative in Moscow this May.

While the Eurovision Song Contest is her immediate focus, there's a solo career to also consider. Performing It’s My Time in Moscow alongside Lloyd Webber is just the first note in Jade’s musical lifeline. “I see Eurovision as the beginning of the rest of my professional life,” decides Jade. “You’re seeing the start of a 20, 30 year career.”

As the song goes, now is Jade’s Time and she’s not letting go of it. Today Eurovision. Tomorrow, the rest of the world…

Video:

Performer: Anastasia Prikhodko
Song title: Mamo
Song writer(s): Konstantin Meladzé, Diana Golde
Song composer(s): Konstantin Meladzé ...




LYRICS

Вышел из тени вновь, мой враг - моя любовь
Неизбежна моя доля, сколько сердце ни готовь.
Но, прежде чем уйти, колечком золотым
Обручил меня с собою и от чар не защитил
И на волю мою душу не пустил

Мамо, а ти ж мені казала як не жадай
Мамо, а я ж тоді не знала де ж та біда
Мамо, а ти ж мені казала час як вода
Мамо, мамо, мам, любов - біда

Брошу мечту свою и об пол разобью
Как сломал ты мою долю и оставил на краю
Я дождем девичьи слезы разолью

Мама, а ты же мне сказала: не ожидай
Мама, а я ж тогда не знала где ж та беда
Мама, а ты же мне сказала время вода
Мама, мама, мама, любовь - беда...

---------------------------

English Translation

Mum

Out of the shadows once again, my enemy, my love
Destiny can’t be avoided, no matter how much you’re prepared
But before you left, with golden ring
you proposed to me and didn’t save me from sorcery
and didn’t let my soul be free

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

I will throw away my dream and smash it on the floor
How you’ve broken my destiny and set it aside
I will pour girl’s tears like rain

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble
-------------------------------------

μετάφραση στα ελληνικά

Mαμά
Πέρα από τις σκιές, ακόμη μια φορά, ο εχθρός μου, η αγάπη μου,
αναπόφευγκτη είναι η μοίρα μου, σεν έχει σημασία πόσο προετοιμάστηκες.
Μα πριν φύγεις, με χρυσό δαχυλίδι
με αρραβωνιάστηκες, και δε με γλίτωσες από την κατάρα,
και δεν άφησες ελέυθερη τη ψυχή μου

Mαμά,
και μου έλεγες να μην επιθυμώ.
Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

Θα πετάξω μακρυά το όνειρό μου και θα το συντρίψω στο πάτωμα,
έτσι όπως διέλυσες τη μοίρα μου και την άφησες στην άκρη,
θα χύσω τα δάκρυα ενός μικρού κορίτσιου σα βροχή

Mαμά,
και μου έλεγες να μην επιθυμώ.
Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

(Mαμά,
και μου έλεγες να μην επιθυμώ.
Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.)
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

Before choosing to be a singer, Anastasia was trying to find herself and tried her hand at many different musical areas. She is able to play flute, guitar and piano.

Anastasia is very independent and appreciates independence, that is why since she was 15 she has been earning money herself. She pays great attention to critique, always trying to improve herself. Singing is the most important thing in her life, but she also has some other hobbies. These include chess, horse riding and fashion, and particularly likes black outfits.

In July 2006 Anastasia successfully passed all national selections to the Star Factory show directed by the Meladze brothers, and in December 2008 became the winner of the project. After Konstantin Meladze had presented the song Bezotvetno to her she sang it with the famous Russian artist Valeriy Meladze.

Video:

Performer: Patricia Kaas
Song title: Et S'il Fallait Le Faire
Song writer(s): Anse Lazio
Song composer(s): Fred Blondin ...






LYRICS

S’il fallait le faire,
J’arrêterais la terre,
J’éteindrais la lumière
Que tu restes endormi.
S’il fallait pour te plaire
Lever des vents contraires,
Dans un désert sans vie
Je trouverais la mer…
Et s’il fallait le faire,
J’arrêterais la pluie,
Elle fera demi-tour
Le reste de nos vies.
S’il fallait pour te plaire
T’écouter chaque nuit
Quand tu parles d’amour,
J’en parlerais aussi…

Que tu regardes encore
Dans le fond de mes yeux,
Que tu y vois encore
Le plus grand des grands feux.
Et que ta main se colle
Sur ma peau, où elle veut.
Un jour si tu t’envoles
Je suivrais, si je peux…

Et s’il fallait le faire,
Je repousserais l’hiver
A grands coups de printemps
Et de longs matins clairs.
S’il fallait pour te plaire
J’arrêterais le temps,
Que tous tes mots d’hier
Restent à moi maintenant.

Que je regarde encore
Dans le bleu de tes yeux,
Que tes deux mains encore
Se perdent dans mes cheveux,
Je ferai tout plus grand,
Et si c’est trop ou peu,
J’aurais tort tout le temps
Si c’est ça que tu veux…
Je veux bien tout donner
Si seul’ment tu y crois,
Mon cœur veut bien saigner
Si seul’ment tu le vois,
Jusqu’à n’être plus rien
Que l’ombre de tes nuits,
Jusqu’à n’être plus rien
Qu’une ombre qui te suit.

Et s’il fallait le faire…

Let everybody shine a long
To keep the world from going wrong!
Let your light shine, shine, shine, shine shine!!

BIOGRAPHY

The biggest stars in the Netherlands will be taking the stage for their homeland in Moscow. They've broken every record in their country and are more than ready to astonish Europe now!
True fans of the Eurovision Song Contest

The Toppers, Gordon and René Froger, are true fans of the Eurovision Song Contest and have, for many years now, been closely following its development. Their best memories of this event originate from the time that they were little boys sitting and watching the contest with their families on cosy evenings.With pen and notepad on their lap and a bag of crisps close at hand, they awarded points to each song and then compared these to the points given by the jury.

During their concerts over the past four years, the Toppers rendered many medleys of old and new Eurovision Song Contest songs. “Our participation is like a dream come true and an absolute milestone in our careers.We are enormously proud that we are representing The Netherlands at the biggest music event in the world and our trip to Moscow is going to be one big and “over the top” spectacle that no one can ignore.”

With their song Shine The Toppers believe that finally, after all these years, The Netherlands can break through to the finals. The song is about the fact that if people have a positive attitude they can solve nearly every problem.
A successful tradition uniting people

What began in May 2004 as a one-off event with three successful Dutch solo artists, has now grown into a very successful tradition. Toppers in Concert – René Froger, Gordon and Gerard Joling – has broken each and every record since.

This is the show that thousands and thousands of people look forward to each year. More than 850,000 people have enjoyed these shows in The Amsterdam Arena. During these high energy shows, the audience merge to become one big happy family.

The Toppers are very successful More than 1,500,000 CDs and DVDs sold (all number one positions in the charts) and fourteen completely sold out shows in the Amsterdam Arena remind us of this success.

2009 is the year in which the Toppers celebrate their 5th anniversary.It is also the year in which The Toppers proudly announced Jeroen van der Boom as being the new Topper. He has now taken the place of former Topper, Gerard Joling.

Rene Froger

René’s (born on the 5th of November in 1960) professional career started off in 1987 with his hit single Winter In America. From that moment on, René became more popular than ever. Numerous hit singles followed which made him a well established artist in the Dutch showbiz.

His regular concerts transformed into mega-events like the ones in the Ahoy venue. René was the first Dutch artist to do three consecutive "sold-out" shows in the Kuip Stadium. After his four stadium concerts in the Amsterdam Arena in 2004, René committed himself for a few years to the intimacy of theatre.He also further developed the concept of Toppers in Concert. In the meantime, he worked on a new musical adventure and launched his first Dutch album in 2007. The first single, taken from this album, stormed the Dutch charts.

Gordon

All-round artist Gordon (born on the 6th of July in 1968), started his professional career with the number one hit single Kon Ik Maar Bij Je Zijn, many more hit singles followed. A star was born! From that moment on, he starred in many radio and television shows. Because of his special sense of humour, he is cherished by large audiences.

For more than 18 years now, he is a successful and well-respected artist and besides his solo and Toppers activities as a singer, he knows how to surprise Holland, time after time, with his hilarious and innovative radio- and television programmes. Also, as a juror of successful television programmes like Idols and the X-factor, he knows how to criticise the candidates in a humorous manner but remains sincere and professional. In 2008, Gordon launched his new solo CD A Song For You with an ode to Donny Hathaway. In the meantime, he also published his first book , a collection of his columns which he wrote for a national newspaper and various magazines.


Jeroen van Der Boom

Jeroen van der Boom (born on the 22nd of June in 1972) has been performing since he was twelve years old and can be rightfully called a megatalent. During his college years, he already became a very popular singer/musician until he made his debut in 1992 as a television host. However, performing as a singer always remained his passion and out of hundreds of candidates, he was selected for leading roles in the musicals Barcelona and Novo Mundo. He was also gifted with an impersonation talent and this was revealed in the very popular television/animation series Café De Wereld.

In 2007, Jeroen scored two consecutive number one hit singles. He also starred in Lionel Ritchie’s Symphonica In Rosso in the Gelredome Venue in Arnhem. Since November last year, Jeroen joins René Froger and Gordon as the new Topper.

Biography

Six beautiful and talented girls from Estonia are representing the tiny Baltic country this year. They want to give a breathtaking show and think 'it doesn't matter whether to sing for your grandmother or on the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest'.

Urban Symphony - combining electronic sounds with acoustic instruments

Urban Symphony was formed two years ago, when singer Sandra Nurmsalu took part in Estonian Television’s most popular young soloist competition Kaks Takti Ette, which included a bands' round. That was what sparked the idea to combine modern electronic music with acoustic instruments to find new and sometimes surprising resonance and colour.

Urban Symphony comprises of the singer and violinist Sandra Nurmsalu, cellists Johanna Mängel and Mari Möldre and viola player Mann Helstein, all of whom have been deeply involved in music since childhood. For performing their Eurovision Song Contest entry, Marilin Kongo and Mirjam Mesak joined the group to sing back vocals.

Urban Symphony girls, who between them have over 40 years of experience in playing musical instruments, admit that as they are young they grant themselves the right to reconsider things, to start their quest all over again or to alter course completely. They are interested in beauty in its purest meaning. The music of Urban Symphony should have a fairy-tale-like effect on listeners – simple, sincere and dreamy.

Sandra Nurmsalu

Urban Symphony’ singer is Sandra Nurmsalu. 20-year-old Sandra has two passions – singing and violin playing and Urban Symphony has given her the chance to combine these.

Mari Möldre

Despite her young age, she has always been dedicated to music, for besides cello playing she has been involved in singing and piano playing, taken part in various projects and been a part of several musical collectives. Numerous performances have taken her to different places in the world – even Australia! When she has time left over from school and music activities, Mari takes an interest in architecture and drawing.

Mann Helstein

Mann Helstein is Urban Symphony’s viola player. She started her studies at the age of ten, learning to play violin. By today, the 21-year-old Mann has as a member of various international orchestras travelled all over Europe. In addition, she is currently studying quality and environmental management.

Marilin Kongo

Biography


One autumn morning in a small village in the south of Moldova a young woman prayed to her god; she asked: “Give me, My God, a girl who would become a singer!”. So on October, 28th 1974 in the village of Саnia in the Kantemirsky region, Nelly Ciobanu entered this life.

She is a bright, beautiful girl with captivating charisma; from her first moments on stage she has stunned her audiences with her unique ability to capture a hall with her resonant voice.

She made her professional debut in the Morning Star competition in 1994, which ended with a spectacular victory for the 19 year old singer; she was awarded the first prize and attracted general admiration, both from spectators and professionals. Eminent musicians were heard to say "This girl has a brilliant future".

Following her performance in the 1996 competition Maluri de Prut, she was acclaimed as the best young pop singer in the country. In 1997 at the contest Mamaia, 97 Nelly was awarded the third prize, and with it, recognition of her musical and artistic talents in Romania.

After the Sea of Friends competition in 1998, Nelly’s silver voice echoed along the Black Sea coast of Yalta. She took the third prize in the contest and won the permanent devotion of the audience. The special fire of the Moldavian singer and her Intriguing voice made her a general favorite with a second place at the contest Voice of Asia in 1999. The same year Nelly received the first prize at the contest Vladimir Ivasiuk and the recognition of the Ukrainian public. In 2000, at the prestigious Slavianskij Bazaar contest in Belarus, Nelly created a fantastic atmosphere, leading to the first prize in the festival. The crowd enthusiastically bade farewell to "the Moldavian nightingale" with a standing ovation.

All of Moldova held its breath as it watched Nelly’s performance at the New Wave contest in Jurmala in 2003. Even though she won the second prize, all of the participants, spectators, and juries declared that the Moldavian singer Nelly Ciobanu was the most important discovery of the festival.

The creative career of Nelly Ciobanu has developed steadily; she sings on the same stage with Western and Russian stars and her concerts in Eastern and Western Europe, China and Korea are planned for years in advance. Nelly Ciobanu became the face and pride of Moldavian artistic expression; wherever her voice is heard, people talk of the small country in the Centre of Eastern Europe with respect.

Over the last few years the singer has released four albums, with a fifth in preparation. Now she will present the song Hora from Moldova at the 2009 Eurovision contest. The music was composed by Vyacheslav Daniljuk with lyrics by Andrey Gadzhiu and Nelly herself.

Despite her youth, Nelly is the most authoritative singer in Moldova confirmed by the VIP award, offered every six years. In 2001 Nelly Ciobanu received the rank of Honoured Artist of Moldova. Since 2007, she has hosted one of the most popular TV music programs in Moldova Vedete La Bis .

Three years ago Nelly became a happy mum, and she dedicates her performance in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 to her small daughter who became for her the most important audience in the world.

LYRICS

I've had it all as a little child
I've done it all as a little child
But the pain that I had
For the fame that I got
Was for what?
A little girl is crying alone
A little boy searching for his home
Giving up to a sin
For a heart-craving dream
Is that a sin?

Chorus:
If you really love
The love you say you love (really love)
Then surely that love would love ...
Then surely that love would love to love you back
If you really love
The love you say you love (really love)
Then surely that love would love ...
Then surely that love will love you back

For just one moment
We all wanna be
Just as happy
As one can be
(So don't you make the same mistake
You gotta give for what you take)
And don't you break
A little girl or boy
They're crying at home alone
A faithful song
Will lead the way to make you strong

Chorus:
If you really love
The love you say you love (really love)
Then surely that love would love ...
Then surely that love would love to love you back
If you really love
The love you say you love (really love)
Then surely that love would love ...
Then surely that love will love you back
