#BIRTHDAY: Koit Toome from Estonia is 42 today
What better way to kick off 2021 with the birthday of some who may get to Rotterdam in May. It’s often nice when we see people having another go at winning European singing’s biggest prize.
Back in 1998, we saw today’s birthday boy Koit Toome as a fresh-faced teenager sat at a piano singing a very passable song in Birmingham. Nineteen – yes, nineteen – years later he tried again as part of a duo. He’s a big player in the Estonian music scene and will never be short of work. Anyway, back in 1998 he finished on what would have been the coveted left-hand side of the scoreboard, even getting one maximum. So as a forty-something to which the years have been kind, can he win Eesti Laul again? His song’s out, so what do you think?
