Rebeca – Valentino Boy
Rebeca is probably the singer with the longest curriculum referring to Eurovision preselections in Spain.

The year after, she herself applied for the 2007 preselection Misión Eurovisión both as a singer and as a songwriter. In fact, I love you mi vida was jointly penned by Rebeca and Tony Sánchez-Ohlsson, and composed by the latter, Andreas Rickstrand and Thomas G:Son. Last year, she was back with the song Amor radical and this year tries again with Valentino Boy.
