A legend returns …

Nana Mouskouri returns to the stage with her "Happy Birthday Tour", starting on her birthday in October 2013 in Athens, which will take her once more around the world for one year. Not just to celebrate her birthday… but also the composers and writers who inspired her singing throughout the years.

 

Statement Nana Mouskouri:

"Singing was my first love and always helped me to breathe.”

It helped me to hope and realize that there were love and peace all around.”

After celebrating 50 years of my "White Rose of Athens" two years ago, I realized that:

  • Last year, 2012, it was 50 years since I worked with Quincy Jones and recorded my first album in New York.
  • This year, 2013, it is 50 years since "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" with Michel Legrand and 50 years since the Eurovision Song Festival in London with the BBC.
  • Next year, 2014, it will be 50 years since I worked with Harry Belafonte and had my first stage experience in the USA and Canada.

And since I had the chance to come that far in my life, I thought it would be worth celebrating, singing songs from my favorite composers and writers, for all my dear friends, the audience.

Happy Birthday to all who have given me the answer that love still exists.”

And as long as there is music for me and my friends, there is love!”
