Many rumors say that Mihai Traistariu may try to compete for Romania one more time. He represented Romania back in 2006 with his song Tornero which later became a hit in Europe. We had a little talk with Mihai, and here is what he says about his future plans.
How has the Eurovision Song Contest changed your life since 2006?
- It completely changed my life. I traveled a lot, I made international fans… Now I sing a lot in English, Spanish, Italian, French … I have had a lot of success since 2006. My songs are played on many radio stations all over the Europe.
– I was so happy after the voting :) The song Tornero had been played before the contest on many radio stations in Europe so despite being highly ranked the song itself was a huge hit.
We overheard some rumors that say you plan to come back to the Eurovision next year. Is that true?
– Yes! I’m working hardly to find the perfect song for my voice. Every year I receive more than 50 – 60 songs from different authors and from different countries but none of them understand that my voice is not a usual voice. I need something special. Maybe I’ll try to write some songs myself . I already have 140 songs as a composer, so maybe it’s better to do this on my own!
Can you tell us more about how are your preparations going so far?
- Last week I wrote 2 songs. :) I’ll try to write more than 10 – 15 songs especially for Eurovision. I’ll chose the best 2 songs (a ballad and an up-tempo song) and I’ll try to ask my fans to vote for the better song.
Do you think you can win the Eurovision Song Contest some day?
- I hope so. It’s so difficult but all I need is the best song, a little luck and of course- the support of Eurovision fans!
What are your future career plans?
- I will launch my new single Zombie love soon. Also, my new album (the 14th album in my career) is almost done. Its name is Change because I changed a lot, especially in the way of my thinking, my look and my music style.
OGAE Serbia thanks you for your time and wishes you luck!
- I hardly wait to compete again at Eurovision 2016. Thank you!
