Warm up to Christmas by listening to the beautiful carols performed by Eurovision artists. Each day until Christmas features a new act giving their version of a Christmas song. As 18th, we listen to Kalomira.
At the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, Greece came third. They were represented by Greek-American singer Kalomira and her charming Secret Combination. She is born and raised in the US, but became known to the Greeks when she in 2004 won the talent show “Fame Story”.
Her Eurovision entry became a massive hit on charts across the world in countries as different as Turkey, Denmark, Belgium, Ireland, United Kingdom and Canada just to mention some – and of course Greece and Cyprus.
Today’s Christmas song is titled Ta Xristougenna Auta. It translates to ‘This Christmas’. She is writing to Santa to tell him that she has been a very good girl, and that she only has one wish: to be with the man she loves. ‘Chestnuts roasting, warm and cozy, mistletoes are all around’, she describes the time while waiting for her guy.
