Austrian representative Vincent Bueno’s preparations for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 are in full swing after releasing his entry Amen a week ago, and collaborating with renowned Dubai-based designer and fellow Filipino Michael Cinco to wear his outfit for the contest in May.
Vincent revealed in an interview with Peopleasia.ph that he has dreamed ever since he was little to wear Michael’s clothes on stage, noting that the designer is “super down to earth.”
“…what a wonderful, humble person Michael is. It’s truly an honor for me to be working with him.”
Michael’s profile includes designing for A-list celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Tyra Banks, and Naomi Campbell, to name a few. Added to the long list of personalities he worked with include fellow Filipino and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wutzbach, Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere, Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai’s viral Cinderella gown at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, as well as Swarovski empire heiress Victoria Swarovski’s wedding gown.
On the other hand, Michael shared that he want to help Vincent with his costume for the contest, noting the 35 year old singer’s “world-class talent.”
“Even though he is already an Austrian representing a European country and not the Philippines, I still consider him a world-class Filipino talent deserving of support. His good showing in Eurovision would eventually benefit not only Austria, but also the Philippines.”
Despite being born and raised in Austria by both Filipino parents, Vincent is fluent in Tagalog, as well as English and German. He will be singing his ballad Amen which, according to him, is about one’s inner struggle with your own strengths and weaknesses which leads to a bright future. He will be performing during the second semi-finals on May 20 in a bid to qualify for the finals on May 22 and bring the third trophy home for Austria.
