Salvation Army wins big in Switzerland NF

Heilsarmee, the Swiss Salvation Army, has entered and won the Swiss National Finals today and will represent Switzerland in Malmö next May.  Their band includes members ranging in age from 20-something to an honest-to-God 94 year old. ( Now Engelbert Humperdinck and the Russian Grannies are both displaced from being remembered as Eurovision’s oldest competitors!)

“You and Me”, Heilsarmee’s song, is surprsingly memorable, and neither as “oom pa pah” or cutesy as you might expect.  With a catchy song and a novel artist bio, the Swiss stand a very good chance of qualifying for the finals this year. Congratulations Switzerland and Heilsarmee!!
