Maybe in the US, the Eurovision Song Contest is no big deal. But it is an annual contest that attracts aprox. 200 million television viewers.
In 2017, the song that won the contest is a nice (jazzy) pop waltz. Sung in portugese by a remarkable young man who was in very uncertain health situation: he needed a heart transplant (which by now, he succesfully has gotten). The song was written by his sister, who studied music in the US...
His performance is here on YouTube

Anyway: because the song is so beautiful IMO, and also for the challenge, I did a cover version on my uni-C6 that's right here

Well played, Jan. Enjoyed it! Are you really using C6 on your Uni? Or is it B6?

What's in a name... But I guess that "uni C6" is the best way to describe it. Here's a post from a while back in time on my copedent. Updated today because I saw there was a change missing that I added about a year ago
