The newly released star of Chanel occupies a privileged position in the city of Alicante, the Mirador de la Música, a space that has been inaugurated by the representative of Spain in Eurovision 2022 and the dancers of “SloMo”, Pol Soto, Exon Arcos, Josh Huerta, Raquel Caurin and Maria Perez.
The viewpoint is a space that pays tribute to the artists and musicians who have ever sung in the city of Alicante. The mayor of Benidorm, Antonio Pérez, pointed out that music has been very important for the city of Alicante: “Thanks to music, the world was able to get to know Benidorm and put it on the map”.
But the viewpoint and the star has not been the only thing that has been inaugurated in Benidorm. To pay homage to the historic Benidorm Festival (1959-1971) and the Benidorm Fest (2022-), two sculptures have been presented: the Little Mermaid in Gold and the Bronze Microphone, the trophies that the winners of both festivals once received.
Chanel Terrero wanted to thank the city of Benidorm for the beautiful tribute: “Thank you for supporting music. I hope and wish to see this full of stars and winners of the Benidorm Fest”, said the singer.
An hour before, at seven in the afternoon, the Benidorm Fest Chill Out was held, a round table led by María Eizaguirre, Director of Communication and Participation of RTVE, and Eva Mora, head of the Spanish delegation at Eurovision.
Some of the participants of the first edition of the Benidorm Fest have participated in it, such as Blanca Paloma, Xeinn, Marta Sango, Sara Deop and Matt from the Unique group.
In this space in front of one of the best-known skylines in the world, the experience of the artists during their time at Benidorm Fest 2022 has been discussed and recalled. The contestants of the first edition have also encouraged the artists to present themselves next year and try to represent Spain at the festival:
“Whoever wants to come, go ahead but responsibly. It’s a huge stage, and you have to know that it’s television. Prepare yourself psychologically because it will change your life,” said Blanca Paloma.
Finally, they also talked about future expectations and their new musical projects. Sara Deop, Marta Sango and Xeinn have commented that they are already working on new music.
The group Varry Brava, who also participated in the Benidorm Fest, has enlivened the talk by singing “Hortera” and “Raffaella”, the song with which they participated last January in the Spanish pre-selection.
The Keunam & Hernoti duo wanted to pay tribute to the songs of the Benidorm Fest 2022 with a very special mash-up that mixed the great hits of the Alicante event.
Another of the afternoon’s performances was starred by Blanca Paloma. The one from Elche has presented us with her new song “Plumas de nácar” for the first time, an interpretation that has moved the public that has not stopped applauding her.
The event has ended with the presence of the older falleras of Benidorm on stage who have not been able to contain their tears and emotion upon meeting Chanel.
