“Even if this may sound as a confession, I just wanna say that for 13 years I’ve gone to bed with a dream of someday recording this song, getting on the famous stage of Eurovision and bringing joy to peoples’ hearts with a sincere love song.”
We came across these lines in an article by complete accident and we had to take a closer look. If people wanted to know how far the dream of Eurovision goes, then they can go to America and read the aspirations of American violinist Ryan Lazarus from Boston.
Upon seeing the Eurovision Song Contest from Sweden in 2000 he has had the dream of performing on a Eurovision stage. 2 days after looking at Eurovision from Stockholm he composed the music of his song “Everlasting Love”. In the search to put lyrics to his song, he met poet/lyricist Frank Cunningham and the song evolved into “Love’s Destiny”.
Now both of them have taken to the American website Kickstarter to source funding for the project and have secured an LA based producer to help them. You can listen to “Love’s Destiny” HERE but we thought it fascinating the lengths to which performers and song writers will go to – all in the name of Eurovision. Have people forgotten the songwriters in the contest? Let’s make sure they are recognised for what they bring to Eurovision!
