TURKEY – Serhat gave a press conference today at Istanbul’s Marmara Hotel, announcing once again his participation in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest (again). It will be the 10th anniversary for San Marino and SMRTV hopes at least to qualify to the final with such an experienced and professional artist.
Serhat puts his confidence to the friendship with SMRTV created back in 2016. His songs will be full of positive energy an open hug for the world.
After the announcement of San Marino RTV on Monday 21st, Serhat held today, January the 28th, a press conference for the local media, in the heart of Istanbul, at The Marmara
SMRTV Director General, Mr. Carlo Romeo, stated:
“Even though San Marino is a small country, we participate to Eurovision with a very big heart. The Republic of San Marino, despite its small territory, is standing strong and we are still among the Eurovision competitors. It is our 10th participating year, a round number, so we have evaluated thoroughly our Eurovision entries, and we realised that we try hard thus deserve an equal treatment. So this year, we ‘press the button of new decade’ and we participate with a very talented singer, who we really believe in, and with a good song. As I said, Serhat has a particular emotional tie with San Marino. He is also a citizen of the world, and binding Istanbul, London and Paris to San Marino, is an additional value for a small reality as ours”. Tel Aviv as a location, in a country which has always been friend to, points out the importance of the public broadcasters in the intercultural Dialogue for the culture of Peace”.
Mr. Romeo praised Serhat’s commitment to bring peace among tensions in various regions giving the example of Greece and Turkey.
“Friend, arkadas, amico, ami, freund, ……, in all languages that Serhat, with my humble envy, knows and uses”, concluded Mr. Romeo.
