Interview with Casanova
What’s your favorite French entry in the history of Eurovision ?
For the song and for the artist he is, I choose Patrick Fiori with “Mama Corsica” in 1993!
He represented France as I would like to represent it! He is very authentic, and a true French with all his cultural values !
Why did you wanna compete at the Eurovision concept ?
I have loved Eurovision since I was little! This big and spectacular show has always attracted me and intrigued me! I like to see how each country feels music. And discover different styles, and sounds of the world.
What is the message of your song ?
I want people to dance and sing together ! Let them forget their problems for a few minutes! Especially during this time of global pandemic…
In today’s society I find that we have become increasingly individualistic, social networks make us believe that we are connected but really, we are far away from each other…
In my song, I want to tell that whatever happens , together we are stronger and we can overcome everything !
Through it, I would like to be the face of culture and values of each French region
What can we expect from your stage presence ?
My team and I will give everything to prepare you the best possible performance on stage ! I really want you to come and party with me ! I’m so excited !
Can you tell us more about yourself so we and your fans can know you better ?
My real name is Yoann CASANOVA, I live in Bastia, Corsica and I’m 27 years old ! I was Fireman before. I left everything for music !
I was lucky to be able to participate in The Voice France and reach to the Final !
I love SPORT !!! Running in the mountains and Football !
I wanna ask you if there was someone from the music industry that was your idol or role model ?
I don’t really have an idol but a lot artists inspire me! In France I admire for Jacques Brel forhis texts and his interpretation… Johnny Hallyday remains the way to be on stage, a real showman! More recently I’m listening to Stromae, Ed Sheeran and John Mayer !
How was your experience in The Voice ?
It was a great adventure about people, friendships and art… I learned a lot about myself and my emotions during this period when we were performing ! I have incredible memories of it !
Have you ever visited Greece ?
I have never been to Greece… I’ve seen so many wonderful pictures, I have friends who told me so beautiful things about it! I hope to get there as soon as I can !
*At the end of the interview Casanova thanked us for the support*
In closing, we would like to thank Casanova for his time and we would like to wish him the best of luck to his attempt to raise the Tricolour in Rotterdam 2021.
