The Show) in 2008 and later came 6th in the Austrian national selection of 2016 singing “All We Need is That Love”
Talking about the creation of “Alive” Vincent was quoted: “The song itself has undergone massive evolution and got a good push in the final sprint. I worked with very young producers and composers (David, Davey ‘Yang, Felix van Göns, Artur Aigner), who will definitely be involved in the Austrian music scene in the future. While the song was being created, everyone on the team was able to experience how much the song was evolving, especially when everyone freed themselves from their own egos and opened up to each other.”
The song was premiered today during the radio show Ö3-Wecker. The music video for “Alive” was produced by ATTIC Film on behalf of ORF-Enterprise Musikverlag in Vienna
Vincent will perform “Alive” in the first half of the second Semi-Final on May 14th, 2020. You can listen to the songs revealed so far here :
