Last Wednesday, July 23rd, Nana Mouskouri gave her farewell concert in her homeland, Greece, more precisely at the Odeon Herodes Atticus, close to the Acropolis in Athens.

French website reports about this very special moment in the career of an artist: “A lot of politicians, including Greek Prime minister Kostas Karamanlis, were there.Nana thanked her fellow citizens and performed a selection of classical, jazz, traditional and pop pieces as well as her own biggest hits".

Earlier the same day, she was awarded a golden medal from Athens’ mayor, in presence of the Berlin and Luxembourg mayors.

Since she declared she wants to give an end to her carer, Nana Mouskouri got involved in a three-years international tour to say bye-bye to all of her fans.

Nana Mouskouri represented Luxembourg at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1963, with the song A force de prier and placed 8th.
