???????? Portugal: Eurovision 1994 Representative Sara Tavares Has Died
Sara Tavares, who represented Portugal in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, has passed away at the age of 45.
Sara Tavares, from Portugal, participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 1994 held in Dublin. She sang the song "Chamar a Música" and obtained the magnificent eighth place in the contest, being one of the best results that Portugal has ever had. The Spanish jury gave her 12 points, and 13 out of the 25 countries participating awarded her with points for her performance.
The vocalist has passed away after battling a brain growth for more than ten years. This led Sara to put her musical profession on hold between 2009 and 2018. In the latter year, she was acknowledged with a Latin Grammy nomination.
Sara began her career in 1993 by taking part in a TV show called Chuva de Estrelas. She won the first season and then went on to win the Festival RTP da Canção, which gave her the opportunity to represent Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994. Throughout her career, she released a total of six studio albums as a singer.
Sara Tavares, who originates from Cape Verde, made a second appearance on the Eurovision stage last year as one of the performers during the show's intermission in Lisbon.
We, the team at Eurovoix, want to convey our sympathy to the loved ones of Sara during this challenging period.
