Dana, winner of the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest from Ireland, will release her autobiography on 6th November. It took the singer one year to write her memoirs and the book is named – which might be no surprise – after her winning song: All kinds of everything.
On 6th November, Dana will also releaseher new albumA thing called love. About the book she says: "I was determined to get the book out for Christmas and I've kept to that target. I envy people who have a natural talent for writing, but this is really a labour of love. I want to tell my story just like it happened." Damien Scallon, her husband, added: "Dana has been in touch with old friends to pick their memory boxes for anecdotes. The book is definitely going to be filled with all kinds of everything."
After her victory in the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest, Dana went on to become a very popular singer in her home country. Later, she also hosted children's programs on television before she turned to politics: she became a member of the European Parliament and was also a candidate for Irish president. Nowadays, she says that politics are behind her and that she concentrates on singing again.
