Nana Mouskouri – The Happy Birthday Tour

World-renowned singer, UNICEF ambassador, international statesperson and philanthropist, Nana Mouskouri has recently received the distinguished National Order of Quebec and an honorary degree from McGill University.
Nana’s year long Happy Birthday Tour, which kicked off on her birthday, last October in Athens, has her traveling the globe. Montreal is one of eleven lucky Canadian cities on the tour.

In Nana’s own words:
“Singing was my first love, which always helped me to breathe… it helped me to hope and realize that there should be love and peace around!
After celebrating 50 years of my Weisse Rosen aus Athen (White Rose of Athens) two years ago, I realized that:

  • Last year (2012) was 50 years since I worked in New York with Quincy Jones on my first album.
  • This year is 50 years since the Umbrellas of Cherbourg with Michel Legrand and 50 years since the  Eurovison Song Festival in London with BBC.
  • Next year (2014) will mark 50 years since I worked with Harry Belafonte and had my first stage experience in Canada and the U.S.

And since I had the chance to come this far in my life, I thought it would be worthwhile celebrating, singing the songs of my favourite 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!”
