Vote for Saara Aalto in the Eurovision Song Contest

Yesterday we filmed a preview show re the ESC. I was a panel member in the program. Saara happened to be in the studio building at the same time.

Here’s what I wrote about Saara in a previous blog text, April 11, 2011:

Hi! This girl should represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest!

Hej på er! Läste precis artikeln ”Harakiri är en lämplig utväg” i Aftonbladet, där finska bidraget sågades. Tyvärr, som finländare, måste jag hålla med. Jag uppträdde som mellanakt på finska Mello finalen. Jag trodde inte mina öron när vinnaren utropades. Hur i all världen tänkte finländarna??? Aalto blev tvåa. Hon var en överlägsen vinnare i min värld. Saara hade gjort en låt som var internationell. Hennes framträdande övertygade också. Hur kunde finnarna göra bort sig och inte rösta på denna tjej? Här kommer bidraget! Vad tycker ni?

Kram, Linda

And I’ve written one more thing:

Saara Aalto is an incredible Finnish singer. Year 2011 she came 2nd in the Finnish Eurovision song contest. I then wrote about it in my blog. I said it was a big mistake by the Finns, not to send her to the international Eurovision Song Contest. But many Finns thought ”Who do you think you are Saara, singing in English?!” Well, I thought that was a great thing and the only way to make it outside Finland.

Saara then asked me if I wanted to play on some tracks on her Christmas album. Of course I wanted that. I recorded my parts here in Stockholm.

2016 decided to compete in the Brittish X Factor. She came 2nd!!! Suddenly after that Finns started saying ”Our Saara” ”She’s so good”

2018 she will represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest 👍👍

Here is one track from that Christmas album I played on:
