Rosa López, the 2002 Eurovisision Song Contest Spanish representative, presented this week the recital that she will give later this month and explained how she wishes to develop her career.

It was 13 years ago when Rosa López represented Spain in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest in Tallinn, Estonia after stepping into fame in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. Now she is about to release the fourth single of her latest album. The song, Llanto de nostalgia, will be performed during a recital in Alicante, Spain. Rosa herself presented the show on 12 November.

During the conference the singer expressed her feelings about the times when she became a famous artist and how she would like to keep going forward and turn the page on that period of her life. I have the impression that I am still perceived as the one I was in Operación Triunfo, and that is a restrain. People recall that Rosa that they like better. But that Rosa was a girl and that Rosa suffered more.

She claims that launching new records and picking songs for them helps her go forward and put her previous years behind. Although she is fond of her first steps during and after Operación Triunfo and the Eurovision Song Contest, she feels that she has to evolve.

A good illustration of her eagerness to evolve could be the significance of Rosa López, her latest album, the first of my second phase since this is a new beginning on my own. In fact, Rosa is already busy with her next record and actively involved in its production and composition.

Rosa’s recital will be held in the Teatro Principal in Alicante, Spain on 21 November at 20.30 CET.

Rosa López won the first and most successful edition of Operación Triunfo in 2002. She reached the sixth position in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest representing Spain with the entry Europe’s living a celebration. With her participation she also revived the interest of the Spanish audience in the Eurovision Song Contest.
