#BIRTHDAY: Birgit Õigemeel from Estonia is 34 today
We all love Estonia, don’t we? Often grouped as a Nordic nation, their selections are often a highlight of the national final season. Who needs Melodifestivalen…?
Today’s birthday girl sometimes passes us by when compiling lists of the best from Estonia. But Birgit Sarrap (née Õigemeel) was the last performer to sing in Estonian, or ‘eesti keelt’ as they say in those parts. She cut a pretty figure and you could only just spot her baby bump underneath a dress you’d normally see on a Balkan girl belting out some Joksimović composition. If you’re watching ERR, get her back for another go. And get her to sing in ‘eesti keelt’.
