In 2009 The Toppers shined at Eurovision but their story is older than that and their success is a continuous during 13 years old!
The group was formed in 2005 by three Dutch solo singers Gordon, René Froger and Gerard Joling (who particpated in Eurovision with Shangri-la). In late 2008, Joling was replaced by Jeroen van der Boom. However, on 2 December it was announced that Gerard Joling returned to The Toppers.
The actual members are René, Gerard and Jeroen and their recorded Live Concert is back on the charts. Since 2005, when they released the first Live album they are on the charts every year with a new Live recording.
Toppers in concert 2007, 2011 and 2015 reached the number 1 in the charts of the Netherlands but allmost all of their anual CDs were certified as Gold.
This year, the themed concert "Wild West, Home Best" was published as a DVD and CD and it's already in the charts of Belgium and the Netherlands. Jan Smit joined the team!
Let them Shine, Shine, Shineeeeeeeeeeeee!

Salvador Sobral has been a source of news since before his victory in Eurovision. Sometimes for the best reasons and sometimes a little less.
Unfortunately we have noticed their health problems and without wanting to enter into their privacy the magazines and periodicals inform us of their state of health. Salvador is in the spotlight and worries us all.
Last week all magazines and newspapers talked about Salvador almost like last May when he won Eurovision.
The reason was his last concert on August 8th, when he said goodbye to his audience as he had announced in a video that he posted on the web.
All magazines have published images of the artist and his last concert in Estoril. Of course speculation is typical of this type of magazines but almost all have had conversations with cardiologists to explain the situation of the young Eurovision winner.
In all, it is explained that Salvador needs a heart transplant and that the worst scenario is rejection. According to LUX magazine, Salvador is admitted to a hospital specialized in heart disease. There he expects a compatible heart to arrive. This magazine tells us that the singer is stabilized until the desired heart arrives and that he will then have a long way to recover. TV Guia, another magazine, explains the reasons why the singer is so thin referring to fluid retention that are typical of his illness.
LUX also highlights 2 phrases from the artist "It was very good everything that happened, even if I did not deal well with that, but now I'm already in peace"; "I will receive all your love and I will keep it in an imaginary box. I hope it fits."
Of course with words like this that the poet tells us; with the emotional interpretation of "Amar pelo dois" next to his sister, the Concert could not stop being emotional and the public honored the artist with hundreds of white balloons, as if demonstrating all their support to the problem that the singer suffers.
Although we would all like to give Salvador a heart, as demonstrated by his Spanish partner in Eurovision, Manel Navarro, Science is not yet so advanced. Salvador, we hope you get your heart and soon enough have the strength to see you back on the stage that is your Life!

With the strength and passion that Pastora Soler says "I love you" she comebacks with a new album - La calma.
The new single "La tormenta" is the preview of her new album. Pastora sings to the search of reconciliation, the reunion with a love that sometimes is not clear if it is a person, life or the music itself, the one that she left by its own decision on December 1, 2014.
It does so by saying that "we can still reinvent ourselves without realizing it", and asks to be embraced, "so strong that it hurts, so much that it rains". "La tormenta", an advance of the most anticipated return of the spanish female singer is composed by Tony Sánchez Olshonn, creator of what is already one of the fundamental themes of his career, "Quedate Conmigo".
What is clear is that "La tormenta" will be indispensable for its audience in the concerts of their new tour, which will start in style on November 19, no less than at the Teatro Real in Madrid. "Embrace me as if it were the one I always lost," says Pastora. Whoever sings it, only she knows. Although what comes after "The Storm" we always know what it is ...

Portugal, Setúbal - Saturday 9th.
For the 9th time in a row, a group of fans and the Municiplaity of Setubal held the Summer concert that ended the Eurovision season (for fans) of 2017. Now we are ready for 2018 and for the first national finals that will took part probably in December.
During 9 years our website and our team took part in the organization of this concert with more or less artists, but always with success.
The worst problem this year was undoubtedly the fact that many artists could not attend the show because the event was scheduled for the same weekend in Frankfurt. The result of that was that the event in Germany was canceled and even the international artists in Setúbal were few, they left the public satisfied and eager to receive the next Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
During two hours the audience could listened to Sanja Vucic, Nathan Trent, Anja, Sasha Song and Timebelle.
All of them were supposed to perform 1 or 2 songs, pero por culpa de Mirela que canceló el espectaculo por problemas personales, the organization pidió a los artistas que interpretasen uno o dos temas más.
The high moment of the concert was the tribute that Nathan Trent made to Salvador Sobral singing the winning song of Eurovision. The next day, Nathan made headlines in all Portuguese newspapers. Nathan also provided us with two more songs from Eurovision as well as his song: Satellite and Heroes.
Another surprise came from the hand of Sanja Vucic who played the song of Inga & Anoush from Armenia. Modlitva was also very well received by the public and Sanja showed that she is a great interpreter. Just to remind that she's the actual number 1 in our Chart.
Anja from Denmark sang 4 songs to us. 3 of them evergreens and classics of pop music in which she was not shy to show her vocal skills. Sasha Song sang some of their songs aside from their Eurovision song and managed to put the whole public standing with their interpretation of Hit the Road Jack.
But the national artists were not lacking either. Anabela and Marco Quelhas (MTM) reminded us of some of the moments in Portugal's road to win Eurovision this year by performing their songs.
During the break a video wall with all the portuguese entries in Eurovision was shown and it was great to see the audience remaining at their seats, dreaming, singing and satisfied by the deserved victory.
It was a great show and you should not miss the 10th anniversary next year. Even if you are planning to visit Lisbon next May, don't forget not to spend all your budget and save some for Setúbal!
