May is Eurovision songcontest month in Europe. Not this year. Obviously. I’m not a fan, but ever since a Dutch committee decided to send musicians with a little more depth in their songs, it at least became enjoyable to listen to the Dutch contestant. Last year that even resulted in winning the contest. This year the committee selected another wonderful artist and song.

Jeangu Macrooy will not be performing his song Grow on stage in Rotterdam for a live audiene of 200 million. However, he was allowed to sing it in the Concertgebouw without an audience. In this bare version (just him and a pianist) you hear even better what a wonderful performer Macrooy actually is. Enjoy listening.
