Fernando Daniel (born 11 May 1996) is a Portuguese singer. He won the fourth edition of The Voice Portugal who took place in 2016.


He first appeared on the musical industry in 2014, participating on the Portuguese TV show, Fator X, which is the Portuguese version off the worldwide known music show, X Factor. He auditioned on the second edition, alone, and was finally eliminated in the piano phase. However, the judges liked his voice and had the idea to join him together with Luana Ribeiro, another contestant who was eliminater at the piano phase. Together, they formed the group BABEL, which finally ended 4th place overall at the show.

Later, in 2016, he appeared on the 4th season of The Voice Portugal to try his luck again. His audition was a huge success worldwide and in the country, beating the record of the most watched audition of The Voice (TV series). With the favoritism on his hand, he went on to win the show in December, receiving the majority of the public votes.

In 2017, he was invited by the Portuguese composer Henrique Feist to sing the lyrics of his song "Poema a Dois" and to participate on Festival da Canção and try to represent Portugal in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. He finished in 5th place on the Grand Final. The Grand Final was eventually won by Salvador Sobral, who sang "Amar Pelos Dois" that ended up winning the contest, which took place in Kiev.

Afterwards, Fernando Daniel kept singing and his single "Espera" was used as the soundtrack for the Portuguese novel "A Herdeira".
