Eurovision Winner Conchita Wurst

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Sorry it has been so quiet lately. I'm still loving the new album from Rebecca & Fiona as well as "Moving On" from Alice Dallin-Walker. I have a bit of a list of new songs that I want to share with you. So I'm going to try and get through that list within the next week. 

Up first is the Eurovision Song Contest winner, Conchita Wurst (aka the Bearded Lady) from Austria. Eurovision happened last weekend so this is a bit of old news. But I'm sure some of our readers out there don't know about it.

Who is Conchita Wurst? Conchita's website says this about her: Because of the discrimination against Tom in his teenage years, he created Conchita, The Bearded Lady, as a statement. A statement for tolerance and acceptance — as it's not about appearances; it's about the human being. 'Everybody should live their lifes however they want, as long as nobody else gets hurt or is restricted in their own way of life.'

Conchita's song that won Eurovision is called "Rise Like A Phoenix." It is like a gorgeous James Bond theme song. Actually, it is better than most James Bond theme songs! It's a power ballad that has lots of drama and a big crescendo. 

The video is amazing. You can watch it here ...

Or you can watch Conchita's live vocal performance at Eurovision.

Amazing voice, eh? "Rise Like a Phoenix" is available on iTunes. Buy it now!

Cheers then,
