Jeangu Macrooy

Grow (live)

Back to overview

We recorded two live versions of Jeangu Macrooy’s Eurovision Song Contest song ‘Grow’! The first version is an acoustic performance accompanied on piano, recorded at one of The Netherlands’ most beautiful concert halls: Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam. The second version is a full-band live performance, recorded at Rotterdam Ahoy - the location where Eurovision would’ve taken place. Of the Concertgebouw version a live video will also be released. Jeangu: ‘It was really special to perform ‘Grow’ in these iconic venues, even though they were empty. One day we’ll all be together again’.
