Who is Portugal's Eurovision 2022 act? Meet MARO – RadioTimes

Portugal's Eurovision 2022 star MARO recently returned from LA ready to represent her country.
As everyone's favourite music event makes a return for 2022, Eurovision fans are all wondering who will make it to the top of the leaderboard.
Following Italy's win in 2021, they are playing host in Turin and it promises to be a night full of spectacular performances.
Among the hopefuls taking to the stage in the coming days will be Portugal's artist MARO.
Read on to discover more about the young singing sensation who is carrying Portugal's hopes on her shoulders after she was selected by her country.
Name: MARO, real name Mariana Brito da Cruz Forjaz Secca
Age: 27
Instagram: @maro.musica
Twitter: @itsameeemaro
MARO, whose full name is Mariana Brito da Cruz Forjaz Secca, was born in Portugal to a musical family.
After initially thinking she wanted to be a vet, MARO soon realised she was going to continue in her nearest and dearests' footsteps and pursue a career in music, and learnt how to play piano and guitar.
She jetted off to the United States of America and enrolled at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, before moving to Los Angeles to further hone her craft.
While there, she made quite the impression and even opened for the likes of Jessie J.
Now, she's focusing her efforts on representing her country at Eurovision.
Gentle ballad Saudade Saudade is extremely close to MARO's heart as it's dedicated to her late grandfather.
MARO wrote the song with one of her contacts from her time in the US, John Blanda, and it includes lots of emotional and poignant lyrics.
It's already had huge success, reaching number 1 on the country’s Viral 50 on Spotify for several consecutive weeks.

It’s finally happening.

Calling all members of the Bey Hive! The time has finally come. Beyoncé has announced that she will be touring her latest album, ‘Renaissance’, released in July last year. Much to our delight, the superstar confirmed the live dates were happening at the Wearable Art Gala in California on October 22, when two tickets and a full backstage pass were put on auction.

Although the rumours of the 2023 tour have been confirmed, there still remains a lot of speculation around the dates of the UK leg, as well as whether Beyonce will be joining Elton John as a headliner at Glastonbury 2023. There is a lot of hype around Bey returning to British shores and a lot of fans will be trying to secure their seats to see her perform. We expect that when the tickets drop for ‘Renaissance’ in the UK they will sell out mega fast, so make sure to keep an eye out.

If you want to find out how to cuff your tickets to the ‘Renaissance’ tour then keep reading. Here is everything you need to know about Beyoncé’s 2023 UK shows.

The singer has been very secretive with any news of her tour and is yet to release any dates of pre-sale or general sale tickets. In true Bey fashion, she is keeping the Bey Hive very much on its toes.

No tickets have been released yet, so we don’t know exactly how much the ‘Renaissance’ tickets will cost. However, it is likely that the price will depend on where you sit.

For her ‘Formation’ tour shows in the UK, Beyonce’s tickets ranged from £77.50 to £385. It can only be assumed that tickets for this much-awaited tour won’t come cheap and may be much higher than that.

The ‘Break My Soul’ singer is yet to release any dates or venues for her ‘Renaissance’ tour and could announce them at any moment.

During her previous tours of the UK, Beyonce has made recurring visits to venues in London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester. We can only hope that she will be making a return to these areas in her upcoming tour.

Now that the tour has been announced, there has been a lot of speculation around who Bey will be choosing to follow her around the world to open the show for her.

There have been rumours that Beyoncé has been considering British girl group Flo, who will receive the Rising Star Award at the 2023 Brit Awards. Other potential openers who will join Bey on stage are the Nigerian singer Tems, as well as English singer and rapper Bree Runway.
Beyonce’s last tour in the UK was back in 2018 with her husband Jay-Z for her show ‘On The Run II’. The couple performed a total of six acts that included a mix of both of the stars’ songs such as ‘Crazy in Love’, ‘99 Problems’ and ‘Run the World (Girls)’.

They started the tour in Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and London before moving onto the rest of Europe and finishing the tour back in the USA.

Before that, Bey toured the UK in 2016 with The Formation World Tour in support of her album ‘Lemonade’.
