Se o teu coração não quiser ceder
Não sentir paixão, não quiser sofrer
Sem fazer planos do que virá depois
O meu coração pode amar pelos dois
If you heart won't be wiling to give in
Won't be willing to feel or to suffer
Without making plans of what will come ahead
My heart can love for both of us instead
Lyrics: Amar Pelos Dois(English translation)

Salvador Sobral

Salvador Sobral (27) is a Portuguese singer and composer. He won Festival da Canção 2017 in March 2017, which selected him as the Portuguese representative at Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv.

He originally studied Psychology in Lisboa, but his passion for music was stronger.

In 2009 he competed in the third season of "Ídolos" (Idols), where he finished seventh.

Salvador has been studying jazz music in Barcelona at the school Taller de Musics. During his stay in Barcelona, he was the vocalist of the pop indie band "Noko Woi", with whom he participated in the Festival Sónar in Spain.

In Portugal he has been working with several big names on the Jazz scene, and in 2016 his first album in his own name, "Excuse Me" was released.

Portugal in Eurovision Song Contest

Portugal 2014 | Suzy - "Quero Ser Tua"

Portugal has participated 49 times since 1964. It was a very bad start, as they managed to get Zero Points in the debuting year. Until 2017 they have never won the contest, and never made the top-5. In fact Portugal did hold the record for most appearances in the contest without a win!

Since the introduction of Semi-finals in 2004 Portugal only qualified for the Grand Final 4 out of 12 times.
