About Chanel

Chanel was born in Havana (Cuba) in 1991 and moved to Spain, more specifically to a village in Barcelona when she was three years old. Since she was nine years old she has received singing, acting and ballet lessons from teachers as important as Victor Ullate, Coco Comín and Gloria Gella.

After moving to Madrid, she began her career in musical theatre, participating in shows such as Mamma Mia!, The Bodyguard and The Lion King.

His first approach to music and the stage came in 2012 with the group Co Co Gua Gua. But where she really took off was when she was able to be Shakira’s dancer at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Her career has included several appearances on the small and big screen with appearances in “El rey de la Habana”, “La Llorona” and “Águila Roja” among others.

Chanel has said about herself that since she was born, she is the owner of her actions and an empowered woman and that for her, performing at the Eurovision Song Contest is a dream come true and she wants to go all out to make the public enjoy the art so that they have a good time and it is reciprocated.

The song “SloMo” is a Latin pop and reggaeton song with which Chanel will try to win the crystal microphone on 14 May. For this, the singer has surrounded herself with composers (Leroy Sánchez, Keith Harris, Ibere Fortes and Maggie Szabos) who have worked with other world-class artists such as Madonna, Mariah Carey or Britney Spears, Jennifer López’s choreographer or Alejandro Gómez Palomo’s wardrobe.

Spain in Eurovision

Spain first appeared in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 in Cannes and came back to every Contest since, becoming the country to participate the most number of times in a row since their debut without skipping an edition.

Spain won the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 1968 with the song La, La, La and Massiel. Curiously, she wasn’t meant to be performer in Eurovision in London that year. The Catalan singer Joan Manuel Serrat was the original artist choice, but a couple of weeks before the contest he confessed his intentions to sing the song in Catalan instead of Spanish, something that was banned by the Franco-regime in Spain. He was quickly replaced and the young female rising star Massiel was rushed to the Royal Albert Hall where she pipped the UK home entry at the post, Cliff Richard’s Congratulations, by only one point.

Spain became the first country to win the Eurovision Song Contest twice in succession in both 1968 and 1969. Spain hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in the capital Madrid in 1969.
