Cristian Sanda Gorun, a new star

Cristian Sanda Gorun is one of the Romanian children with golden voices. He is a very talented teenager originating in Craiova. His first participation in the world of music was as a singer and artist for a TV show entitled "My Childhood / Copilaria mea" in 2004.



I followed his evolution, and I was always impressed by his voice. He participated to the "Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006", to the "Youth Festival 2008 / Festivalul Tineretii 2008" where his song won the trophy,  "Remember Festival 2009" or "Youth Constelation 2009 / Constelatia Juniorilor 2009" contest.



Some of his songs made touching shows. His amazing performance determined that the " Eminescu" song,  tribute to Eminescu's opera, with lyrics by Doina si Ion Aldea Teodorovici, at a 2007 Music Show, was one of the most appreciated song by the audience (not just because Eminescu is a star for Universal Culture) of the event.



He is still " A child, a new star / Un copil, o noua stea", as said one of his songs, who make you fall in love with his voice  "First and last time / Prima si ultima oara" when listening him, as said another one.



Thanks to all who shared over the web his songs.




In fact I'm always "Feeling good" listening his voice.



I was amazed again by his talent seeing his last participation at the Romanian version of "The Voice" show, "Vocea Romaniei" with "Sorry seems to be the hardest word" on music by Elton John and lyrics by Bernie Taupin. (unfortunately the video is no longer available). I've loved this song since ever, can you blame me?

"What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there
What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word
It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word
What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning strikes me
What have I got to do
What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word"

Anyhow, you should seen the reaction of all the judges Horia Brenciu, Loredana Groza, Smiley and Marius Moga when he started to sing  October 25th.  All of them decided to promote him to the next round of  "The Voice of Romania / Vocea Romaniei" show .

Good luck, Cristian!
