Following in the recent news of UK Eurovision stars “Blue” allegedly declaring financial difficulties, another UK Eurovision singer has been declared bankrupt. Andy Abraham becomes another victim of financial circumstances.

Abraham’s came joint last in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with “Even If” – this result was the final straw for UK commentator Terry Wogan who said that he could no longer comment on a contest where good British Singers were not being rewarded at Eurovision.

Andy shot to fame when he came second in the UK’s X-Factor in 2005 loosing out to Shayne Ward in the final by 1.2%. He was signed to Sony BMG and had a #2 Album in the UK and #1 in Ireland. He was released from his Sony contract in 2007 and found himself at Eurovision in 2008 in Serbia representing the UK.

Andy released 4 albums in total – the final being last year “Remember When” – with an accompanying DVD. He made his income from touring – with the band Boogie Nights – but this seemingly was not enough to keep him from being declared bankrupt by the British Courts on May 15th.

Abrahams is signed up with artist management agency Champions (UK) plc. However, when they were approached for comment, the agency declined.
