PORTUGAL – Yesterday the Portuguese parliament was unanimously united to celebrate the victory of Portugal at Eurovision 2017 by inviting both Salvador and Luisa Sobral as special guests.
Speaking after the event, Salvador said he hoped that victory in Kiev would make the government provide more funding for Portuguese arts and culture.
Luisa, herself, added that she felt honoured that herself and her brother were received so warmly since Kiev and that she was delighted to see so many covers of “Amar pelos dois” appearing on the internet in the days since victory was achieved in Kiev.
Moving forward, Salvador is being heralded as a major artist, especially since winning Eurovision in Kiev and although he is still recovering from illness, he is being pushed into the spotlight at international level as a main representative for Portugal.
“Amar pelos dois” has been rewarded by the press in both Europe and Australia as the best song sent to Kiev and there will be much expectation at what else will be produced in the year to come.
