Coral Segovia is already a familiar name to eurofans from both Spain and abroad as she already tried to represent her country back in 2008 with the song Todo estÃ�¡ en tu mente. This year she is back with a “power ballad” entitled En una vida, a song that means “everything” to her because it can “touch the heart of those who have not forgotten a precious love”. esctoday.com had the chance to talk to her and find out more about her feelings towards the 2010 Eurovision season.

What encouraged you to apply for the 2010 Spanish Eurovision selection?

I was waiting for a song that could make me feel and express everything I have been through in my life, and most importantly I was waiting for a song that could touch the heart of those who have not forgotten a precious love.

How was the evolution from Todo está en tu mente to En una vida?

Todo está en tu mente was an important song for me too, but in a different way. It was a pop-dance song that people could dance to. En una vida means everything to me because it comes from the heart and I am very happy to see it has meant a lot for some people too.

How would you describe your candidate song for 2010?

It is a power ballad, but if you listen to it carefully you will realize it is very fragile too.

Do you have any musical patterns you get inspiration from?

I admire a lot of artists but inspiration should come from within. I can tell you artists that I love like Anna Vissi, Josh Groban, Barbra Streisand, Zeljko Joksimovic, Dulce Pontes, Patricia Kaas, Elton John, Leona Lewis, Il Divo… I don’t know. There are so many great artists in the world…

Do you have any clues as to your performance at the Spanish national final?

My production team and myself are not at that stage yet. There is still the Internet selection to get through. It is better to wait for it to finish and make sure that we have secured a place in the final. One step at a time.

So far, most of the national representatives chosen across Europe are male artists. Do you think that female soloists will make the difference this year?

I think that it is not a question of genres, but songs and artists.
