Axel Hirsoux – Mother
Composers: Rafael Artesero, Ashley Hicklin
Axel Hirsoux and his winning entry was chosen through a national final in Belgium called Eurosong 2014. For the last years, Belgium has chosen their representative through a internal selection, and we have to go back as far as 2008 before Belgium had their latest national final. The competition had seven shows consisting of a casting process, a second chance, semifinals and the big final. The final has six competitors and the winner was chosen by televoting and international juryvoting.
Axel was born in 1982, and has since then been doing music in one way or another. Although he has been around music all his life, he didn’t get his big breakthrough until last year when he participated in The Voice where he ended on Natasha Saint-Pier‘s team, which entered the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2001. Axel has always loved Eurovision, and therefore decided to participate in Eurosong 2014, where his dream came true.
