Not a day after the official announcement by Belgium’s broadcaster , RTBF, that Eliot Vassamillet will represent the country in Eurovision 2019, the title of his entry is also revealed.
ELIOT’S EUROVISION ENTRY
The 18 yo artist, who got fame after his participation in talent show The Voice 2018, will represent Belgium in the 64th Eurovision Song Contest performing an english language song entitled “Wake up”. Composer of the song is Pierre Dumoulin of Roscoe group who was behind the country’s Eurovision 2017 entry City Ligths which came 4th in the grand final in Kiev.
The young talented artist stated on his collaboration with Pierre:
Pierre has invited me to his home at Liege. I told him my background and expectations. The first guitat i got it at the age of seven, two years of solfeggio, my passion of Anglo-Saxon pop music and melancholic songs. Pierre made me listen to a demo which would later become Wake up and i immediately hooked. We talked together about the topics of the song. Wake up is a call to youth to improve the state of the world and mobilize for peace. This is a positive message that we want to pass on.
After his participation at The Voice, the young artist held several concerts around the country while this year he is finishing high school.
Last year Sennek represented Belgium with her song A Matter Of Time, which failed to qualify to the grand final, finishing 12th in the 1st semi final.
