Blanche wins a 2018 European Border Breakers Award

Blanche has won a 2018 European Border Breakers Award. EBBA is the European music award for emerging artists, which recognises outstanding success across Europe. 

EBBA praised Blanche’s Eurovision song and performance and recognised her success. “Blanche first stepped into the spotlight when she represented Belgium at the semi-final of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev. It’s hard to imagine a better version of the folky song City Lights, but she did it again in the final, and it earned her fourth place. The young Belgian singer has a soothing, husky voice that recalls Lorde and London Grammar’s Hannah Reid. Blanche is signed to PIAS, and with just this one song released, which has racked-up over 20 million streams to date, it is safe to say the world is eager to see and hear more.”

Check out our review of City Lights.

I'm so so glad to be one of this year's European Border Breakers Awards ! This is really one of the accomplishment that shows how successful the song has been, and that, is due to all of people that have support and keep supporting by listening, buying, sharing and singing the song ???? It makes me even more excited to share all the rest with you !! xx
