Who is Spain’s Miki and his song La Venda?
Spain’s competitor in Eurovision this year is 23-year-old Miki Nunez, who won singing competition Operación Triunfo to represent the country.
He will sing pop song La Venda, written by Adrià Salas, lead singer of Catalonian band La Pegatina.
Miki is an ex-assistant professor, who has a background in singing with his own band Dalton Bang.
La Venda translates to ‘the blindfold’ in English and, although it sounds sombre, the song comes with a lot of energy.
La Venda is underscored by the Latin rumba and urges listeners to embrace their lives.
Miki’s overall presence and the upbeat nature of the song is expected to bring success for Spain.
What the song looks like on stage remains to be seen, but early performances suggest Miki will debut with droves of energy.
