Karl William Lund: ‘Azerbaijan offered me a fee for a Eurovision song’
Karl William Lund first tried out for Eurovision when he entered the UK preselection in 2016 with his song ‘Miracle’. He was selected for the final by a panel made up of Eurovision fans from the UK OGAE and he has since built up a great relationship with Eurovision fans, appearing at a number of fan events.
As part of our review of the off-season events, we wanted to share with you our interview at Eurostarz iin Concert where we talked all things Eurovision with Karl. He spoke of his love of the fans, the importance of events like Eurostarz in Concert, and the fact that his Eurovision journey is still only beginning. Karl continues to be determined to reach the big stage of Eurovision either as a performer and/or a songwriter. Since Miracle he has entered a song for Ireland, and was even offered a fee by Azerbaijan for a Eurovision song. Find out why that offer didn’t quite work out in our interview here:
And it seems that Karl isn’t finished yet, in fact he revealed recently that he would be entering the 1in360 preselection event hoping to represent San Marino in 2018. That competition has now reached the stage where acts can compete for a wildcard in the final stages through gaining the support of the Eurovision Fans (familiar territory for Karl). To offer your support, check out the competition’s website.
