Lasse Holm, 75
This guy has really been in involved in the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Sweden. Although he only performed once at the contest. That is in 1986 in a duet with Monica Törnell. Where they gained the 5th place with the song “E’ de’ det här du kallar kärlek”.
He also worked on 4 more songs that reprecented Sweden at Eurovision, “Dag efter dag” (1982), “Främling” (1983), “Bra vibrationer” (1985) and “Eloise” (1993). Which all did good, and placed from 3rd place to the 8th.
Alan Sorrenti, 68
Italy selected Lasse to go on their behalf to Eurovision in 1980. He therefore performed the song “Non So Che Darei” at the stage in The ague.The song placed 6th at the Contest, but however came really popular all over Europe after the contest and was one of the most played song that year.
All of us here at escXtra want to wish this lovely bouquet of Eurovision birthday boys and girls the happiest of celebrations!
