Bad news come from Spain for every fan of the Spanish Eurovision entrant in 2012 – Pastora Soler. She has published an official statement, where she says that she has to stop her career completely due to stage fright, all until she regains her self-confidence.
Pastora Soler has cancelled most of her tour this year, and during her concert in Malaga only two days ago, she stopped her concert after various songs, as her stage fright had also affected her throat. Here’s a translation of the statement posted on her official Facebook page:
I speak from a heart broken by pain, impotence and with this worry that I feel, and I feel that it will take a long time to forget. As I said last night, the respect for my audience is the biggest thing I’ve learnt in these 20 years. I put everything in my power to overcome this stage fright which came into my life on the 8th of March this year, and I thought it had passed, but last night it happened again in Malaga, in front of an audience to which I owe so much, and at a land that I feel my own, my strength failed me again, this time affecting even my throat. I can’t thank you enough for your love and understanding, and I have to tell you that I haven’t got any strength left to continue. I should have taken the decision to put my career aside a few months ago, but my desire to fight pushed me to go on. Today I have to announce my decision to leave my professional activity until I have regained my self-confidence.
I’m sorry with all my heart.
All of us here at ESCBubble wish Pastora Soler a fast recovery, and we hope to see her owning the stage once again as soon as possible!
