Who is she?

Filipa Azevedo is only 18 years old but has already a victory of the talent show Família Super Star in her portfolio, winning it in 2008, at the age of 16.
From then on, she participated in numerous TV shows and recorded her first CD. She studied transverse flute, from the age of 12, at the Music Conservatory of Porto. She presently lives in London, where she studies Music Technology and Music Production.
The writer of the song, Augusto Madureira, has been a journalist for over 20 years. But music is an old love in his life: he started studying piano at the age of 6, at the Music Conservatory of Faro.

What the fans thought?

"This is the best ballad in the first semifinal, possibly the entire contest. Filipa is a wonderful singer, the song is well thought-out, and the performance is key." a fan from Finland said.
"I love Filipa Azevedo! I think it's the best song ever that has represented Portugal." said Catarina Vaz from her homeland.
She finished 18th in the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with 43 points and 4th in the first Semi-Final, held on the Tuesday before.
