“Sberegu” by Alekseev has been released this morning.
Today, on his birthday, Alekseev released his new single “Sberegu” (Save). The song is available to listen to on iTunes and YouTube, with the official music video being released in the near future.
Alekseev has spent his birthday on stage in Odessa, Ukraine, where he performed a concert. This is the third consecutive year that he has performed on his birthday.
Alekseev represented Belarus at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal, last week. He participated in the first semi-final with his song “Forever”, placing 16th with 65 points.
The singer rose to fame having participated in the Voice of Ukraine and has gone on to be a rising star in Ukraine and the CIS. He had originally entered the Ukrainian selection process for Eurovision 2018, before withdrawing and opting to try and represent Belarus instead. He won the Belarusian selection process topping both the public and jury voting, and therefore went on to represent the country.
Belarus debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 and has made it to the final on five occasions. Belarus’ best result in the contest came in 2007 when Dmitry Koldun finished 6th in the final with a total of 145 points. In total Belarus has qualified for the Eurovision final five times in fifteen attempts.
