MOLDOVA 2014: BORIS COVALI WITHDRAWS
CHICNAU, MOLDOVA – Boris Covali, one of Moldova’s hopefuls to represent the country at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, has withdrawn his song from the competition. Covali’s song “Flying” was one of the hot favourites to represent Moldova in Copenhagen.
The song was withdrawn by Covali’s manager without permission from the songwriters and composer. It has been replaced by the singer’s other song in the competition entitled “Perfect day”. However, that song didn’t make it past the semi final which is sure to stir controversy.
Michael James Down, one of members behind “Flying” said in a message, “Boris’s manager also made him record and submit another song, “Perfect Day” written by Brandon Stone. However, Boris made it clear that it was still “Flying” that he wished to perform and hoped would make it through.
However, a few days ago we were informed that Boris’s manager had decided to withdraw “Flying” and replace it with “Perfect day”. Even though it shouldn’t be up to him to make such a decision. We were also informed through Boris that there had been “financial agreements” between his management, the people behind “Perfect Day”, and TRM.
It seems “Flying” had simply become a too dangerous competitor, or perhaps it didn’t fit in with other agreements that were being made in favour of promoting “Perfect Day”.
