I couldn't let today pass without posting a birthday from a trur ground-breaker amongst ground-breakers. Sadly she's no longer with us.

The year was 1994. A certain Baltic had tried the year before in a pleasant little show in Ljubljana, which wasn't to be. So a year later, this thrusting country sent the legendary Silvi Vrait with her song about the sea. Who couldn't help but like a singer who took the wearing of purple to another level. Well, she got two points from Greece and beat the other Baltic republic that year. Sadly, Silvi died in 2013. She is missed.

Silvi would have been 67 today.
