So, Day 6 of Alex at ESC was his Birthday!:) He probably had a day-off, so we couldn’t find anything about his activities that day. That’s why we just post a fan-video, which was created by his fan as a birthday gift to him:) and
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALEXANDER!
This music composition called “Del mare” (the sea) was written by Tatiana Ledeneva. She recorded it and put on the video with pictures of beautiful Norwegian nature. Amazing work! Thank you, Tatiana!!:)

– I felt disgusted when the article was published. It was not good. It is not myself I think of first and foremost, but my closest family and friends.
