Discovered after performing acoustic covers on social media, the young artist Manel Navarro will represent Spain in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Do It For Your Lover, which has already become a radio hit in his country.

Manel Navarro, 21, is a young composer and singer whose music is a mixture of influences from Bob Dylan to Ed Sheeran. Manel, always carrying his guitar, breaks the mould of pop music, with the rhythm of his brilliant songs. The singer and composer performs in the style of the tradition of James Bay or Passenger.
Aside from original material Manel's covers have also performed well on social media. DJ and producer Alan Walker praised Manel publicly for his cover of one of his songs. After success with his first single, Candle, released in 2016, his second single, Do It For Your Lover, has become a radio hit. Earlier this year he won the Spanish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest and will represent Spain in Kyiv.

Lyrics

Spanish/English (Original)

A veces cuesta decir todo lo que uno piensa A veces la vida causa estragos sin que te des cuenta A veces parece que es como una melodía Frustrada y perdida no nos deja ver la luz del día
Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover, Do it for your lover, do it for your lover, Do it for those you ever care and love
Coge mi mano, no cierres esa puerta Deja que el dolor y la tristeza desaparezcan Así que pega un grito, sal ahí y vuela Y verás que por los tuyos siempre vale la pena
Así que Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover, Do it for your lover, do it for your lover, Do it for those you ever care and love
Just do it, just do it, just do it for your lover Just do it, just do it, just do it for your lover, Just do it, just do it, just do it for your lover Just do it just do it, just do it for your lover.
Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover, Do it for your lover, do it for your lover, Do it for those you ever care and love

French

Parfois il est difficile de dire ce que l’on pense Parfois la vie fait des ravages sans que tu t’en rendes compte Parfois c’est comme une mélodie Frustrée et perdue que ne nous laisse pas voir la lumière du jour
Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes baby Tape dans tes mains et fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes baby Tape dans tes mains et fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour les ceux qui prennent soin de toi et t’aiment
Et l’amour Et l’amour
Prend ma main, ne ferme pas cette porte Laisse la douleur et la tristesse disparaître Crie le plus fort possible, sort et envole toi Et tu verras que si c’est pour les tiens, ça vaut toujours la peine Et ainsi …

Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes baby Tape dans tes mains et fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes baby Tape dans tes mains et fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour les ceux qui prennent soin de toi et t’aiment
(Amour…)
Et l’amour (Amour ...) Et l’amour (Amour ...)
Fais-le, fais-le Fais-le juste pour ton amour Fais-le, fais-le Fais-le juste pour ton amour Fais-le, fais-le Fais-le juste pour ton amour Fais-le, fais-le Fais-le juste pour ton amour Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes baby Tape dans tes mains et fais-le pour celui que tu aimes Fais-le pour celui que tu aimes
Fais-le juste pour l’amour Fais-le pour les ceux qui prennent soin de toi et t’aiment
Et l’amour Et l’amour
Oh baby fais-le Fais-le
