A trip down memory lane

Fernando Daniel performing When We Were Young

It wasn’t the first time Fernando Daniel appeared on TV, but nevertheless he made a shattering impression at his The Voice of Portugal audition! The audition has over 110 million views at the time of writing. With this he has broken a The Voice record. Naturally, all four coaches turned around on his version of Adele’s When We Were Young.

Fernando Daniel tried his luck once before during the Portuguese version of The X Factor. He auditioned for the 2nd season and was eventually eliminated in the piano phase of the show. But the adventure did not end here for Fernando. The jury liked his voice and decided to let him continue as a duo along with another contestant (Luana Ribeiro) who was also eliminated. In the end they reached the 4th place in the show that year.

His participation in The Voice of Portugal was even more successful. After this fantastic cover he steamed through to the final, which he finally won convincingly!

After his successful participation, Fernando tried to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Portugal. Unfortunately, he didn’t make it to the contest and Salvador Sobral took the honors by also winning the Eurovision Song Contest.

In July 2017 Fernando Daniel released his first single “Espera” and later in 2019, Fernando won the Best Portuguese act award at the 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards.

In 2021 he started as a coach at The Voice Kids Portugal, coaching the younger generation.

He is already a renowned name in his home country Portugal and it only a matter of time that he will also break through in the rest of Europe and later the world. What we know for sure is that the talent is there, the rest the future will tell
