This year’s ESC winner Salvador Sobral, who has enchanted millions of Europeans with his emotional ballad “Amar Pelos Dois” is suffering under serious heart disease and needs a donor heart. Salvador has cancelled his last concerts a week ago, he is now in hospital at the intensive care unit as his condition is getting worse.
Even during the Eurovision Song Contest in May, the 27-years-old singer arrived late and could not attend the first rehearsals due to his heart problems. His sister Luisa, who has also composed the winning song has replaced him on stage.
Let’s hope Salvador will find a donor heart and that he will recover soon.
