Dame Tu Voz

All songs have El Sueño de Morfeo’s style, pop songs with celtic tunes (violin, ukelele and bagpipes) and a possitive message on lyrics, a new and different music than former Spanish participations.
The jury will be formed by: Rosa López (Spain 2002, 7th place), Jose María Íñigo (Spanish commentator in 2011 and 2012) and Marco Mengoni (Italy 2013 and winner of San Remo 2013 and X Factor Italy 2010).
Four artists and bands have been invited as guest including Pastora Soler who represented Spain at Eurovision 2012. Those artists will perform together with El Sueño de Mofeo some famous songs of their past albums and hits.
El Sueño de Morfeo was internally selected to represent Spain at Eurovision 2013. The announcement took place on December 17th in the Magazine +Gente and they have been composing and recording their own songs in the past months. TVE has decided to use the same last year’s procedure after the 10th place got by Pastora Soler with “Quédate Conmigo” (Best Spanish score since 2004). As well they are going to select the song with the same method.
Four songs were been presented to the public via the official RTVE web site, but only three will be performed live at the national final. The last finalist song added to the lineup has been “Atrévete” wich was choosen in an on-line battle against “Revolución”.
Enjoy the show!
