Hera Björk who represented Iceland at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo became one of the six finalist in the prestigious Viña del Mar International Song Contest. She is going to perform “Because You Can”.
The biggest music festival in Latin American will take place February 24 to March 1. Some big names are scheduled to perfom including Elton John and the Jonas Brothers. The song contest will be held at the Quinta Vergara amphitheatre in Chile.
“I’m very excited about the Viña 2013. It’s such a large and prestigious event, I mean it’s been an important part of the Latin American music scene for so long. And it’s an amazing opportunity for me. We’ve been rehearsing for a few weeks and by now everything is ready, but it’s still a bit unrealistic that I’m a part of this years Viña del Mar contest. Maybe it has something to do with trying to find a swimsuit in the middle of winter here in Iceland”
