PLEASE VOTE FOR ZURIANI

Malaysia’s accomplished songwriter, Zuriani, is having one of her songs, sung in the Eurovision Song Contest in the UK level on 5th March. It’ll be live on BBC!!! Her song “Flashback” will be sung by Gina G. So, please, please, please vote for Flashback and let’s put Zuriani’s song forward to the International level. A Malaysian first certainly!



Here's the link:
Eurovision

You can sample the song and read about it on this link.

Just recently, she co-wrote, One Friend for American blues artiste Keb’Mo’ which appeared in his Grammy Award-winning album Keep It Simple, which won Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 47th Grammy Awards.
I have had the pleasure of meeting Zuriani during her visits to London. Oooh, if only I can write songs like her. She zooms here and there, Norway, London, Malaysia, LA and God knows where else and churns out songs for singers such as Siti Nurhaliza, Ziana Zain, Ella, Sugar Babes and now Gina G. Gina G is of course Australian pop sensation who represented Britian in the 1996 contest with 'Ooh Aah, Just a Little Bit”.

Zuriani is currently with Big Life Music in London, and is married to American Arthur Zonneveld and is blessed with daughter Jasmine.

So, on Saturday 5th March, UK time 17:45 – 1845, the show “Making Your Mind Up “ will be aired live on BBC One. The winner will be decided by a public vote vaa phone, text message and and on the Making Your Mind Up website.
Results will be announced at 2020.

kakteh: there is this program u can use on the computer that can help u send A LOT of votes at one click of the mouse when u make ONE call to the station. I read that someone actually called the voting line twice to send in 1000 votes for the 1st Spore Idol winner.Wicked, innit? Anyone familiar with this tool?

I hope Zuriani wins.
