Did you really think that I would only talk about Benfica? Oh no.. Saturday was the craziest day in Portugal.
We had the Pope in Fatima, Benfica as a champion and, while we were celebrating the championship, Salvador Sobral was announced has the winner of Eurovision 2017.
Congratulations Salvador! Thank you for what you’ve done!
Salvador and his sister Luísa took one of simplest songs to the festival and they won. Why? Because everyone was touched with the music even if they didn’t understand the words Salvador was singing, people felt the music in their hearts and realized its true meaning.
A naked music, a simple interpretation and a great singer was all that was needed to get the prize home, who would know? We have been participating in the contest for almost 50 years if I’m not mistaken and until now our best prize was a 6th place with Lúcia Moniz, another amazing singer.
Well, as FPF shared on twitter ‘ 10 months later, a new #11 conquers Europe!’.
Review his performance here and if you are like me the music will just be stuck in your head for hours.
