Sarah Dawn Finer – or more commonly know to the International Eurovision Viewer as Lynda Woodruff of the European Broadcasting Union – has confirmed that she wants to represent the UK at Eurovision!
Sarah Dawn Finer is a Swedish singer, songwriter and actress with British and American parents. For those of you who were enjoying a party during Eurovision, Sarah performed at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest final as herself with ABBA’s “Winner Takes It All” as well as playing the English comedy-character ‘Lynda Woodruff’ from the EBU.
In an interview with Gay Times, Sarah was asked if she would be back performing an entry at Melodifestivalen (Swedish Eurovision Selection) next year? It was an emphatic “no – not for some time to come” she added. However she did go on to say “I would love to write a song or sing for the UK one year. So if you want a half-British, half-American singer for 2015, I know of one.”
Add to this that she will be working in the UK from the Autumn – “I am coming over to the UK to write some songs with Glen Scott [who has worked with James Morrison, Blue, Atomic Kitten, Craig David, Charlotte Church] and his partners as well as some co-writing in Sweden” – it seems like a dream come true for the UK!
The BBC now have a multitude of artists offering to represent them at Eurovision – that many people will know of! No excuse for not getting a popular singer for 2014 and 2015!
