Eurovision 2013 through Coffeebooksong eyes

Hello our darlings, how are you ?

We’re talking about a huge event in every nation’s history for many years now. The Eurovison !

With huge projects raising for and after the show, like ABBA for instance, it was one of the finest shows we had ever saw, much like The Voice in our modern days.

After a few years we realized that the winning songs were becoming more and more commercial, with less and less substance, stunning talent, and that warm deep joy that can reach all the way down to every molecule of your body and get you off your chair and dance.
Even more horrible, the neighbor countries were giving the 12 points to one another, or to countries that were once in the same area of influence as they were.
And so many of us stopped supporting such a defiance of common sense and respect for beauty, challenge and positive, meaningful messages.

As my aunt came this weekend, she insisted to see the final of Eurovision with my parents, and as the room where I gathered my artists to talk about this week’s post was close to the loud TV, we could hear some of the songs which made us deeply think about rewriting the post we had in mind for today.

After some debates, we decided to review and display five performances that can raise up to the Coffeebooksong Studios standards: a deep song, with a positive meaningful message, full of passion, delivered through a captivating, confident tone, completed by an amazing stage presence. And this is just the top of the list.

First, is our county’s participant, Cezar Oatu.

The amazing Romanian artist gave a smashing performance and yet again showcased a perfect example of pure talent, stage presence and acting, singing both as a tenor and a counter-tenor while his passion and dedication added even more charm to the song and to the overall performance.

And so, Coffeebooksong Studios would like to congratulate our artist for making us extremely proud of being Romanians and would like to offer him the “Coffeebooksong Studios Inspiring Person of the Year” award for exceptional displaying of Romanian talent, values and honor.

For all of you who don’t know Cezar Oatu’s insanely great work, we have the video for you from last night and we hope you love it, as much as we do:

The winner of this year’s competition, is a different story, and was called by our studio’s artists, the Beauty of Denmark.

Indeed Emmelie de Forest’s loveliness reminded us, of the kind of beauty, that would cause nations to go to war against one another for the Right to ask for her hand in marriage, her innocence would tame the most terrifying of the lost barbarian kings, and her voice could make the roses blossom in the hardest of winters.

In our opinion, however, the song choice was week, very “cold”, totally not suited for a girl who appeared so sensible, the act as a performer was almost non-existent, the message was simple and obvious, the song line was very predictable, we felt that she could have put more passion into the song, and that she could have given a lot more if she had a song that would have challenged more in terms of vocal technique and song line creativity.

So clearly we don’t agree at with the Eurovision fans and judges in making her the winner of this year’s competition, but we congratulate her for officially winning such an important competition so early in her career and for passing every obstacle this competition implied.

Going to the podium now, sparkling on our golden #3 place, it’s a song from a neighbor country of Romania, it’s … all in our next post.

See you real soon and don’t forget to rate, comment, share our work with your friends and family, and subscribe to our site to be notified when a new amazing story is uploaded !

As always, we kindly ask you to mail us at nmerrynote@gmail.com if you have a great collaboration in mind that would benefit both parties, tell us about an inspiring person that you know, or make a story request. We always reply back.

Love,
Coffeebooksong Studios

two hearts

Hello there, how are you ?

Did you realize that the world stopped for nearly two minutes in late March this year?

Well it did, because Ash Morgan, the singer in the picture above, offered perhaps one of the greatest covers of “Never tear us apart” of all time, making live musical history!

And because it’s insanely great that someone with no musical training can make us burst into tears, noticing all his passion, energy, dedication to music and marvelous unique voice, we are honored to offer him the first Coffeebooksong Inspiration of the Year Award! Congratulations Ash! We can’t wait for the next performance and for your first album!

Wrapping everything up in our Studio’s traditional colors, light blue, golden ribbon, small brown gift card, we are offering this incredible story to our dear readers with the deepest respect and sympathy, hoping it will inspire you to take action and change everything for the better as Ash did.

You have plenty of potential to do this.
