After winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 Conchita Wurst has had a whirlwind year including a book, a new single and an upcoming debut album.
With the inclusion of Australia in the 2015 edition of the show it is beyond doubt that Eurovision and its artists are exceedingly popular in Oceania.
It is not surprising that Ms Wurst is promoting the release of her first album entitled simply Conchita while she is in the country, she will be attending the fifty seventh annual television awards down under. The Logie Awards have been running for almost as long as the Eurovision Song Contest. They started in 1959 and this year’s event is on Sunday 2 May 2015. That night Melbourne will be the place to be.
In an article by Kathy McCabe of news.com.au she quotes our favourite bearded lady as saying:
I am beyond excited, because I haven’t been to Australia before and I am sure I am going to love it. I am really looking forward to see my Australian fans.
Kathy describes the album as:
Showcasing her powerhouse vocals on over-the-top ballads and dance tracks.
She won hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide not only for her gifted vocals but also her unique persona which fit the unpredictability of the Eurovision Song Contest. Wurst brings some of that cheeky charm to the debut record with songs including Where have all the good men gone and Put that fire out.
Here is the video of one of the album tracks and also Conchita‘s recent single Heroes.
