Hello Alejandro! Welcome to the Eurovision universe! How are you doing?
Fantastic!!! and very excited about joining Eurovision!! Hoping I`ll go all the way to Lisboa :)!

How would you describe yourself as an artist?
A bit of a mystery...you must experience me live ;)

You are one of the participants of MGP 2018. How did it all begin?
They called me about two years ago and wanted me to join, but my wife had just had our first baby boy, so I didn’t have time...but the thought stayed in my head...and well 2 years later here I am.
“Tengo Otra” is the title of your song, what’s the story behind it?
Well I’m gonna try to keep it short :P after we had our first baby I had a lot of time at home where I could think about what I wanted to do next with my career...I had never done spanish music, so I figured what the heck why not try it? Contacted some friends in miami and went over there to write. This was the first one that came up :)

Describe the song with 4 words:
Passion, love, sex, desire
