Who is Nana Mouskouri?
Nana Mouskouri, born Iōánna Moúschouri on October 13, 1934, in Chania, Crete, Greece, is a Greek singer who is claimed to have sold over 200 million records worldwide. She was known as "Nána" to her friends and family as a child.
Mouskouri was sometimes described as Europe's answer to Barbra Streisand; her distinctive, angelic soprano voice was the result of having been born with only one vocal cord. Her repertoire supported the mainstream appeal she aimed for: jazz standards, well-known pop tunes from before and after the rock era, French cabaret chansons, movie songs, classical and operatic repertory, religious music, folk songs from her native Greece and elsewhere.
