#BIRTHDAY: Solange Berry is 89 today

#BIRTHDAY: Solange Berry is 89 today

Today we’ve picked an even grander dame. Singing for a Grand Duchy. As you’ll know, we’ve not seen Luxembourg participate since 1993, so this song might be before some of you were even born.

It might be a song from before when everyone who reads this was born. It’s in marvellous black & white and came from a TV studio in Hilversum one Wednesday (yes, Wednesday) evening. Birthday girl Solange Berry was actually Belgian, but finished some placed behind her country of birth. And Switzerland liked her. Solange did try again in 1960 for her native Belgium, but she was beaten in the national final by four-times-Fud.
