OIKOTIMES 14 YEARS ONLINE: welcome France
PRESS RELEASE – It’s 14 years already since we first went online with oikotimes – the web page which always meant to bring the ultimate Eurovision information from the side of the fans. Only last year 2,4 million visited our website giving to oikotimes the second best year since 2006.
Since 2011 we celebrate our annual online anniversary with a party to remember night. In 2011 and 2013 it was Athens, in 2012 it was Brussels and in 2014 was host city Copenhagen. In 2015 we again decided to party at the Eurovision host city, Vienna. Therefore we want to invite you all accredited P & F Eurovision lovers to join us at the EUROCLUB on 20/5 at 23:00 after the jury rehearsal for a unique celebration.
We are not going to be alone: Today we are proud to announce the first participant of the party which is France. Directly in the Final, the magical voice and talent of Lisa Angell will join the oikotimes birthday party with the song “N’oubliez Pas”.
Lisa Angell grew up with a dream of becoming a singer. One day, the young singer took a decision to live from music, performing in piano bars across the French Riviera. Afterwards she recorded her single Des Années Après written by Didier Barbelivien (2001). In 2009 invited by the magician Dani Lary on his show, Lisa met Patrick Sébastien, a very popular showman who produced and wrote songs for her first album Les Divines (2011). Lisa’s second album Des Mots… (2013) was introduced by the single Je Saurai T’aimer, a cover of the song by Melanie Cohl which itself is the French adaptation of The Power Of Love by Celine Dion. In the same year, Lisa joined the recurring singers of the show Les Chansons D’abord, hosted by Natasha St-Pier on France 3. Before paying tribute to the songstresses from the 30s, 40s and 50s with her third album Frou-Frou (2014), Lisa and Tony Carreira duetted the song L’oiseau Et L’enfant for his album.
During the party we will make sure the first 50 of you will get random Eurovision goodies specially gathered for you! Don’t miss this one!!!
