Sandro, born Alessandro H. Ruetten was born on 2 August 1996 in Germany, where he currently resides. The German, English and Greek artist was chosen by CyBC, Cyprus' public broadcaster, to represent the country in Rotterdam in 2020 not only to his Greek roots but his unique voice and artistic vision. He is currently working with internationally acclaimed songwriters and producers on new songs and in preparation for Cyprus' entry.
Sandro began his music career at the early age of 4 when he started to sing and play the drums. Influenced by his musically‐inclined family, Sandro started playing the guitar when he was 8 and at 19 the piano was added to his list of talents. He founded his first band when he was 15 years old and it was at this teenage stage that he started to write and produce his own songs, predominantly of the rock and pop genres. Sandro is characterized by his recognizable and colourful voice and his natural ability to connect with the audience and thus convey the emotions of the songs he performs.
In 2018, Sandro’s cousin filed an application on his behalf for The Voice of Germany. Sandro reached the 'blind auditions', making his TV debut with a cover of In My Blood by Shawn Mendes. Strengthened by all that he gained from “The Voice”, Sandro was invited to represent the United States at the 2019 “New Wave” festival, the most prestigious International singing event in Russia, broadcasted live by Channel 1, Russia's public broadcaster.
It is Sandro's philosophy that music must be authentic, truthful and a goal to reach peoples’ hearts.
