ESC 2014: Firelight Speak Tolerance with Conchita

The Austrian singer has been chosen internally and ever since the choice was done, one can say it was surrounded by controversy. In fact a lot of online groups and petitions cropped up trying their best to stop Conchita Wurst from competing in Denmark. This made the singer stronger and in the Eurovision Song Contest, Conchita is not only competing to win the song competition but she’s also in Copenhagen to pass on a strong message. 

In fact whilst meeting the press and also the other singers in the competition, Conchita keeps doing her best to pass her message of embracing tolerance and acceptance without any discrimination. Firelight had the opportunity to meet Conchita Wurst in the press centre and after chatting a bit, the Maltese band was seen sporting the ‘Knit for Tolerance’ joining her in her quest of promoting  her cause. 

Conchita Wurst will be singing Rise like a Phoenix in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest – the same semi-final in which Malta will be competing in. Both songs are being seen as qualifiers both by the fans and also by the press in Copenhagen – hopefully the two countries will have the opportunity to compete against each other also in the finals.  Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.
