The Greek Ministry of Health launches today a nationwide campaign aimed to raise awareness among greek youth on everyday issues such as smoking, drug abuse, violence in schools, addiction to video games, sexual education and nutrition among others. Evridiki has been chosen to sing the theme song of the campaign I zoi echei chroma (Life has colour).

Evridiki has been chosen to be the voice of the nationwide campaign launched today by the Greek Ministry of Health. The theme song of the campaign, I zoi echei chroma (Life has colour), has been composed by Evridiki's companion in life and on stage Dimitris Korgialas, who was also the composer of the Cypriot entry in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest performed by Evridiki.

Popular Greek figures from various sectors have volunteered to assist, each becoming a spokesperson for a particular "colour"- issue. Among them, the 2006 Greek commentator actress Zeta Makrypoulia.

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.
