Arzu Ece


Arzu Ece (born 1963 in Istanbul) is a Turkish singer, best known for her participation in the Eurovision Song Contests of 1989 and 1995. Ece made five appearances in the Turkish Eurovision Song Contest selection as follows: 1987: Kekloglan (with Rüya Ersavci, Fatih Erkoç & Harun Kolçak ) - No placement as only two of the 10 participating songs received jury votes 1988: Zig Zag (with Cigdem Tunc) - Placements not released 1989: Bana Bana (as member of Pan) - 1st 1991: Sessiz geceler (with Gür Akad) - 2nd 1995: Sev - 1st Following her victory with Pan in 1989, Ece went forward to the 34th Eurovision Song Contest, held in Lausanne, Switzerland on 6 May. Bana Bana was a very ethnic-sounding song but it came many years before such songs became vote winners at Eurovision, and finished in 21st place of the 22 entries, beating only the 'nul points' Icelandic entry. Ece's appearance, with the more mainstream ballad Sev, at the 40th Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin on 13 May 1995 resulted in a slightly better placement - 16th out of 23. Ece released her only album Sebibi yok in 1995, then appears to have retired from the music industry as nothing has been heard of her since. She was married with Ali Otyam in 1999 and was divorced from him in 2007. She has a son (born in 2001) from the marriage. She was caught leukemia in 2009 and have undergone a chemotheraphy treatment.
