What else should I know about Alfred Garcia?

Alfred Garcia (Alfred Garcia Castillo) is a Spanish singer born in Catalonia, who has had an interest in music from an early age. He began vocal coaching at the age of seven and over the years has taught himself to play guitar, keyboard and drums. As well as this, Alfred trained at Unió Filharmònica del Prat and has since relocated to Barcelona to study at the Taller de Músics. 

Alfred began making his mark in the music industry back in 2012 when he was only fifteen with the release of his self-produced album Beginning. Three years later he released his first single “She Looks So Beautiful” thanks to the musical project La Capsa. The single went on to win the Audience Award at Festival Cara B in Barcelona.

In 2016, Alfred auditioned for the fourth season of La Voz (the Spanish version of The Voice) with John Mayer’s “Waiting On The World To Change” but unfortunately failed to get any judges to turn at the blind auditions. In the same year, he released a self-produced acoustic album called Inblack (Volume One).

Last year, Alfred auditioned for the ninth series of Operación Triunfo and made it into the Academy alongside fifteen other hopefuls. Each week the contestants performed at a gala, either performing solo, as a duet or a trio. In the third gala, Alfred performed La La Land’s famous “City of Stars” alongside Amaia Romero and together they won the hearts of the nation.

At the end of January, the final five contestants each performed a variety of songs in Gala Eurovisión in the hopes of representing Spain at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. Alfred and Amaia dueted once again with the song “Tu canción” winning the honour of representing Spain with 43% of the vote. They will be off to Lisbon in May to perform in the grand final. 

The contest was not over there though, with the final gala of the competition taking place a week later. Alfred performed “Don’t Stop The Music” finishing fourth in the competition.
