On Monday 16th November 2009 there was a special tribute to our dearest Nana Mouskouri here in Thessaloniki, Greece.
We were shown Nana’s appearances on British TV from 1968 until 1986.
Nana sang on the screen alone as well as with The Athenians, Charles Aznavour, Michel Legrand, Cliff Richard, Demis Roussos, George Tsakiris and The King’s Singers.
Nana’s mesmerising voice as well as her unforgettable glasses reminded the whole audience of those years in the past and of those unique songs such as "Only Love", "Casta Diva", "Mes Tin Varka", "I Will Wait For You", Plaisir d’ Amour and many many more.
This tribute was a constant reminder that Nana is still and forever will be within our hearts. After all, how can you possibly forget someone who made your own country known all over the world through music? How can you possibly forget someone whose voice still echoes inside you? Quality always prevails!
My kindest regards to you all out there, to Nana’s friends all over the globe.
I am sending you two photos I took on my mobile phone.
