NANA MOUSKOURI

She studied classical music with an emphasis on singing opera.

In 1958 while still performing at the Zaki, she met Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis. Hadjidakis was impressed by Nana’s voice and offered to write songs for her.

In 1959 Mouskouri performed Hadjidakis' Kapou Iparchi I Agapi Mou (co-written with poet Nikos Gatsos) at the inaugural Greek Song Festival.
The song won first prize, and Mouskouri began to be noticed.

In 1960, Mouskouri moved to Paris. Mouskouri performed Luxembourg's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1963 that year, "À force de prier".

In 1962, she met Quincy Jones, who persuaded her to travel to New York City to record an album of American jazz titled The Girl from Greece Sings.

In 1969, Mouskouri released a full-length British LP, Over and over, which reached number 10 and spent almost two years in the UK album charts.

This was the first of a series of English-language albums which, boosted by her TV appearances, sold extremely well in the UK and Ireland during the early 1970s, including The exquisite Nana Mouskouri (1969), Turn on the sun (1970), A place in my heart(1971)

As her fame began spreading outside her fanbase in Europe, the USA, and the Commonwealth, Mouskouri was asked to record songs for the Japanese market.

Meanwhile, in 1976, a renowned Taiwanese author, Echo, heard her music and introduced it to one of her female radio DJ friends. Mouskouri's records then become popular in Taiwan, especially among high school and college students, with one of her British albums, Nana's book of songs.

In 1979, Mouskouri released another English-language album named Roses and Sunshine

She scored a worldwide hit in 1981 with Je Chante Avec Toi, Liberté, which was translated into several languages.

In 1985, Mouskouri recorded Only Love, the theme song to the British TV series Mistral's Daughter — based upon the novel by Judith Krantz — which reached number 2 in the UK charts. The song was also a hit in its other versions: L'Amour en Héritage (French), Come un'eredità (Italian), La dicha del Amor (Spanish), and Aber die Liebe bleibt (German).

 in 1987, She released five albums in different languages, and the following year returned to her classical conservatory roots with the double LP The Classical Nana (a.k.a. Nana Classique), which featured adaptations of classical songs and excerpts from opera.

By the end of 1987, she had performed a series of concerts in Asia, including South KoreaTaiwanSingaporeHong KongMalaysia andThailand.

1990s touring the globe. Among her early 1990s, albums were spiritual music, Gospel (1990), the Spanish-language Nuestras Canciones, the multilingual, Mediterranean-themed Côté Sud, Côté Coeur (1992), Dix Mille Ans EncoreFalling in Love Again: Great Songs From the MoviesFalling in Love featured two duets with Harry Belafonte.

1996 and 1997, including the Spanish Nana Latina (which featured duets with Julio Iglesias and Mercedes Sosa), the English-language Return to Love, and the French pop classics, Hommages. In 1997, she staged a high-profile Concert for Peace at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. This concert was later released as an album and aired as a TV special on PBS in the United States.

 In 2004, her French record company released a 34-CD box set of more than 600 of Mouskouri's mostly French songs.

In 2006 she made a guest appearance at that year's Eurovision Song Contest which was held, for the first time ever, in her native Greece.

On July 23 and 24, 2008, Mouskouri gave her two final 'Farewell Concert' performances at the ancient Herodes Atticus Theatre, in AthensGreece, before a packed stadium, including Greece's Prime Minister and Athens mayor, plus the mayors of Berlin, Paris and Luxembourg, along with fans from around the world and thousands of her Athenian admirers.

In late November 2011, Mouskouri sang again at a single concert, with guests, in Berlin, commemorating the 50th anniversary of her hit single "The White Rose of Athens".

I am an Assistant to Mr. Goudas and I witnessed how he spent a considerable amount of time and dedication in honoring the name and life of this extraordinary human being that Nana Mouskouri is; by posting a number of documentary events of the singer, by displaying her work for the world to admire, and this present documentary is no exception. It thoroughly showcases her life. Everywhere she is present, her talent and love accompany her.    

This is a great tribute to honor Nana Mouskouri's legacy.
Thank you dearly, Mr. Goudas, for your fantastic endeavors.
