SERBIA – Serbian media have reported that 31-year-old pop singer Saša Kovačević (one of the artists in our wish-list recently posted on oikotimes.com) is among the favourites to represent the country at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
Kovačević is a hugely popular singer in Serbia and has released a number singles and albums including a string of hits this summer. Although broadcaster RTS has made no comments on how it will choose its ESC representative, an internal selection is expected with Kovačević high on the list.
“I am not aware that RTS has made any shortlists but I am happy to hear about the possibility. It would be nice to represent my country”, the singer said.
Kovačević released his first English language single in 2013 entitled “Nothing but the Faith” . His official YouTube videos are viewed in the millions, with the record holder being his hit “Slučajno” (Accidently) with over 50 million views.
