Helena hits France
Helena Paparizou , the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest winner, will be launching a repackaged version of her album, The game of love, in France. This new special edition will include the Dalida 1967 hit Le temps des fleurs and the French version of Teardrops. At the same time, the repackaged edition of Helena's platinum Yparchei logos album will be released in Greece containing 4 new songs. Last week saw the release of Mazi sou (With you) a TV series soundtrack which includes the title song by Helena.

Two years after releasing her latest album Nylon, Anna Vissi enters the studio again to record a new album that will be released in September 2007. A new cd single as well as a new video clip are expected in the summer though.

Sakis Rouvas goes platinum once more
The end of 2006 saw the release of Yparchi agapi edo, Sakis' latest album which very soon gained platinum status. On 28 April, in a special party in Thessaloniki, the artist will receive the platinum record. Sakis' new film Alter ego will be released in Greece in mid May. You can watch the trailer of Alter ego by clicking here. (once in the page click under Sakis' photograph where it says videos)

Michalis records Tonight
Michalis Chatzigiannis (Cyprus 1998) has teamed up with Reamonn to record a new version of Tonight. Michalis and Rea Garvey, the Reamonn lead singer, recorded Tonight in Greek and English. Tonight has been a massive hit in Greece, remaining in the International charts for an impressive 16 weeks (13 of them consecutively). It is quite possible that Reamonn will perform together with Michalis in his concert on May 5, at the Appolo Hammersmith Theatre in London. The new song will probably be included in the repackaged version of Filoi kai Echthri, Michalis' latest double platinum album. It will certainly be included in the repackaged edition of Wish, the latest album by the popular German group.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
