Laura Tesoro was born in Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium in 1996. Like the only Belgian winner of the ESC Sandra Kim with “J’aime La Vie” in 1986, Laura has Italian roots. Maybe this can be seen as good omen. In 2008 Laura had her first role in the TV crime drama Witse, as well as appearances in the musicals Annie and Domino. In the year 2014 Laura has taken part in The Voice, where she became second. Her debut single “Outta Here” reached the 23rd position in the Flemish charts afterwards. Laura’s idols are Bruno Mars, Beyouncé and Michael Jackson.
The song “What’s The Pressure” is an up-tempo pop song with motown, soul and funk elements. It’s definitely a feel-good entry with a catchy chorus. Laura is performing this happy song with a very lovely and convincing attitude and spreads out her energy wherever she is. The song is about coping with crazy everyday life problems, not to forget the happy things in life. With her positive energy and self-confidence, the 19 years old singer should make it into the Grand Final.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
