The eighth artist to feature in our Who Is series for the Junior Eurovision 2020 season is Soleá from Spain.
Nine-year-old Soleá Fernandez Moreno is from Sevilla, Spain. The singer comes from one of the most important flamenco families in the country (the Farruco), and she made her singing debut in a family show at the La Maestranza theatre when she was young. At four years old, she began dancing and acting, starring in Navidad En Familia.
Soleá was internally selected by RTVE to represent her country at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Her song “Palante” was composed by César G. Ross, Hajar Sbihi, and Bruno Valverde. The song was written to spread positivity during the times of the Covid-19 crisis.
Spain first took part in the contest in 2003 and participated every year between then and 2006. In 2004, María Isabel brought Spain their only victory so far with “Antes muerta que sencilla”. After an absence of 13 years, Spain returned to the contest last year with “Marte” by Melani García. Spain have finished in the top 5 in all 5 of their attempts.
