Saara Sofia Aalto (born 2 May 1987) is a Finnish pop singer, songwriter, and voice actress. Aalto has been looking for a breakthrough and early in her career placed second in the first season of The Voice of Finland in 2012. Aalto has also competed in the Finnish national selection to represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest twice, in 2011 and 2016, placing second both times. Aalto is currently competing in the thirteenth series of the The X Factor UK.
Saara Aalto is a talented singer from my country. She likes to write her own songs, and dreams about international career.
She has a great voice, but hasn't had a hit or succesfull album mainly because there's no supportive record company for her yet.
At the beginning i didn't like her, since i thought she lacks some "warm charisma" like for example Shakira has a lot.
But, during her way on the x factor, i've been giving a lot respect for her.
She truly has a great talent, that shines even more, when they give her these great opportunities and show elements.
"No Fear" is a song written by her for Eurovision 2016 (she got most of the votes - but judges didn't favor her)
Last night she performed also "Bohemian Rhapsody" with Adam Lambert.
So tonight we'll find out the winner of The X Factor UK.
I really hope Saara wins, but either way, i thinks she has now reached enough visibility to start her international career.
