A year later she had a smashing ballad Unistus igavesest päevast competing in Eurolaul but was left without a ticket to Eurovision 1998 at the very last second of the voting. In 1999 she finally won Eurolaul with a beautiful new age ballad Diamond of Night and got a respectable 6th at the Eurovision held in Jerusalem. The lyrics for the song came from Maian-Anna Kärmas who has written many a song and lyric for Evelin Samuel. Maian has also been working as a backing vocalist for Evelin. Evelin has tried to do Eurovision a couple of more times but so far never won again. However in 2000 and 2006 Evelin was seen as the jury speaker for Estonia at the Eurovision. 2002 marked the release of her debut album Over the Water Blue under the name Alternature. In 2001 Evelin Samuel was cast to play the role of Fantine in the musical Les Miserables in Tallinn but had to cancel her participation due to personal reasons in the middle of the rehearsals.
Still a couple of years later she gained good reviews for the role of Nancy in Lionel Bart`s Oliver! in Tallinn and went on to play in the musical Miss Saigon in Helsinki for 1.5 years. In late 2006 Evelin Samuel gave a birth to her first son. She currently lives with her husband and son in Tallinn. Read more on Last.fm.
