Pastora Soler, the Spanish Diva who represented her home country in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, has just released a documentary. This documentary starts with her saying “Yes” to Eurovision, and her career until today.
In this documentary, Pastora first talks about her search for the right Eurovision song, because she says that at the moment when she said “Yes”, she hasn’t had the right song for Eurovision. When she received “Quedate Conmigo”, she knew that that’s the song she has to sing in Baku.
After Eurovision, she worked with Tony Sanchez-Ohlsson, the composer of “Quedate Conmigo”, on her new album”Conoceme” (Get to know me), which contained 11 songs. She talks about how it was to work with Tony, how all the songs were written, to give a positive message, and for the audience to really get to know who she is. Tony said that they were making an album, where each song’s lyrics were directly connected with Pastora, her emotions, and feelings. Pastora adds that every song on her album is very difficult vocally, and every song has its own world, its own moment, but in her own opinion, the song “Esperame” (Wait for me) is the most special song on this album – it’s different, but follows the path of “Quedate conmigo”.
Tony talks in this documentary about how easy it is to work with Pastora, because her vocal technics are amazing, and she puts her own feelings in the songs when she sings them. He says that he is very strict, and has big expectations from Pastora, and when he is working together with her – only sky is the limit.
In this documentary Pastora also talks about how she is preparing for every recording, and how it is the same process as when she is getting ready for a concert. She also talks about her new look, and how the opportunity for the new look came with the photo shoot and recording the video clip for the song “Te Despertare” in Tenerife.
At the end of the documentary, she talks about her upcoming tours, and that they will be slightly different than before. She says that she will never stop singing ballads, nor flamenco, but the concerts are going to be a bit more fresh, and more pop, like her new album.
