Portugal - Há Um Mar Que Nos Separa - Leonor Andrade

Digital release image
14 - 19 pts in semi 2

Há Um Mar Que Nos Separa (There's a sea that seperates usis the Portuguese entry for Eurovision 2015. The song is performed by Leonor Andrade who won the 49th Festival RTP da Canção.
The song is written by Miguel Gameiro.

The song has been released digitally, but the version on the official Vienna release sounds different (read: terrible), something must have gone wrong in the mix. The karaoke version sounds perfecty O.K., and so does the single track release.
Unfortunately my CD has the same wrong version as the digital album (Universal 472 224-3, Netherlands issue). I don't know if other releases have the same problem.

Leonor Andrade was a contestant on The Voice Portugal where she reached the final eight.
