Nicky: The lowdown from Spain

by Victor Hondal 77 views

His name is Nicky and he is from the Canary Islands. This 20-age-old singer has said that he is interested to enter the TVE bidding if the broadcaster opens it to the public. Here, we take a look at the background of the young singer who might just be Spain's next hope for Eurovision victory.

Nicky is the composer of his own songs. This young Canarian boy has shown his interest to enter the TVE bidding – if the broadcaster opens it to the public – with the aim of representing Spain in ESC 2007. The launch of his first album could help him to reach this objective.

Nicky was born on August 7th 1986, and started to feel a devotion for music very early on. In fact, when he was a child, everybody knew the special connection he felt with music. He started developing this skill at the age of 9, singing whenever he had the chance. At 14, he started to think seriously about his vocation and composed his first songs. The first one was Qué fácil es quererte (How easy it is to love you), which gained support amongst his closest friends was presented for the Villa de Candelaria Song Festival. He was chosen to take part in the contest, but did not get enough support. Then, Nicky moved away from music to develop another of his hobbies: theatre.

After a short break, he returned to music by penning Mi mundo y mi prisión (My world and my prison). A bit later, he met up with Lorenzo Suárez, winner of the Benidorm Song Festival and Billboard Award (Best Latin Artist). Together, they start developing a new project. The song Tengo miedo (I'm afraid) is the main single from this collaboration, and was entered in the Candelaria Festival. You can watch the clip Tengo miedo by clicking on this link:

Should Nicky succeed, he would not be the first Canarian to represent Spain at the contest; amongst others, Ramón, the 2004 Spanish entrant,is originally from Gran Canaria.The 1976 entrant Braulio, who sang Sobran las palabras in the Hague, and José Velez, who represented Spain in Paris, 1978 with Bailemos un vals, both also hailed from the Canary Islands.
