Helena Paparizou biography

Helena Paparizou was born 31 January 1982 in Borås, and raised in Gothenburg (Sweden) from Greek parents coming from Volos and Karditsa. Her talents revolved around singing, dancing and acting. She began her studies of these arts even while she was still in school.

Her name has always been spelt 'Elena' during her career, but in Sweden, and in various other countries as her second appearance in Eurovision (in 2005) approached, the latinised spelling 'Helena' grew more common, and the songstress herself admitted in a Swedish interview that she was forced by her record company to spell her name with a 'h'. The singer, however, has made it known that her name is written as 'Elena' and this is how she prefers to be known.

In 1999 she created the group Antique with her childhood friend, Niko at the age of 17. Almost immediately, Antique signed their first record label contract with the then newly founded record label Bonnier in Sweden. Their debut single Opa Opa became a huge hit, reaching number one on the single charts and gaining a gold status. Following their success with Opa Opa came their debut album while later in 2001 came their first major turning point in their career with their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. Their song I Would Die For You conquered third place. Antique's major success in the Eurovision contest led to a promising future and a successful career which included many platinum albums, a European tour, and collaborations with many highly successful and credible artists from Greece and abroad. Despite the group's major success, their journey as Antique came to an end in 2003. Making one of the most difficult decisions Helena ever had to make, she decided to pursue her passion and her musical journey alone.

She has admitted that Greek music had been something of an acquired taste for her, saying that the name Antique was probably a reflection of her childhood impression of it being something rather distant and old-fashioned, that she only really associated with her summer holidays in Greece.

She signed her first contract as a solo artist at Sony Music and in December 2003, she released her first solo single, Anapandeetes Klisis (Missed Calls), a song that was written especially for her by the singer and songwriter Christos Dantis. Quite naturally, Anapandeetes Klisis became a major hit and remained on the top of airplay charts as well as the sales charts for a very long time, reaching a gold status.

During the winter season 2003-2004, Helena appeared beside one of Greece's biggest male singer, Antonis Remos at Studio Pireos music night club.

In spring 2004, Helena released her first personal album Protereotita (Priorities) from which Antithesis, Anamnisis, Katse Kala, Stin Kardia Mou Mono Thlipsi became major hits. Her major success brought her to Fever music night club for the winter season 2004-2005 along the sides of Sakis Rouvas and Giorgos Mazonakis. In the summer and fall of 2005 she toured in Australia and North America with Greek artist Nikos Kourkoulis.

On the 21st of May 2005, Helena Paparizou represented Greece for the second time at the Eurovision song contest in Kiev, Ukraine and won the first place with My Number One. It was the first time in the contest's history that Greece had won.

In August Helena Paparizou performed the first part of Anastacia's concert in Malme (Sweden).

Elena is currently the official ambassador for the Greek Ministry of Tourism. She speaks fluent Greek, Swedish and English (and has also studied French), and has mentioned that her dream would be to make a song whose lyrics were made up of words in every language in the world.

2006 : the CD single Mambo was certified platinum while the album Protereotita ( Euro edition + Mambo ) was certified double platinum ! In March, Helena was at the studio recording her new album which should be released in April. Then, will go abroad to record the English version of her album, which will be released in September 2006.

On July 29, 2006, Star Channel reported that Elena gave a concert in Helsinki where 2006 Eurovision winner Lordi attended. At the concert, Elena sang Lordi's song Hard Rock Hallelujah. Lordi supposedly met with Elena backstage and proposed to do a big concert together in the winter season. Elena was reportedly thrilled at the idea. Star Channel also said that Elena might be pregnant, a rumor that has been circulating, but Elena denies that.

During the first week of August 2006, her new international single Heroes reached #1 in the Swedish Singles Hitlistan Charts. It was the official song for the 2006 European Championships in Athletics held in Gothenburg. Her new greek album Iparhi Logos reached #2 in the Greek Albums IFPI Charts.

Elena's solo debut international album The Game of Love, was released all over Europe, Australia, Japan, and Canada on 25th October 2006. It will gradualy be released world-wide shortly after. It contained six songs from her Greek album Yparhei Logos with English lyrics

After a fashion show gala in which Helena Paparizou posed as model, Elena made statements regarding the current and future Eurovision Song Contest plans. Helena Paparizou said that she did received a proposal for 2007 Melodifestivalen and that she denied the proposal. "I have received many things from Sweden, I also got twice 12 points from this country in the contest. The least I could do this time was to think about it since everyone on SVT is a friend of mine... I could do a lot and I wanna do a lot for Sweden in Eurovision. This doesn't mean I have to be the performer. I can give the votes as a spokeperson, I can host Melodifestivalen and many many things... I cannot though really exclude a future participation in the contest for Sweden", she said.

Gigolo is be the second single released in Greece from the album after Mambo!. Elena also recorded a song called Phos for the soundtrack of the Greek Barbie movie. Her new international single after Heroes will be Teardrops.

Helena will be one of the ten new artists who will receive the European Border Breakers Award. These awards have been created by European Union four years ago and they are given every year to ten artists who managed to make success with their first album abroad. Helena wins this award for the success of her first international album My Number One. The award will take place in Cannes on 21th January 2007 during the Midem Festival and it will be televised by MTV Europe.

Elena has been involved in a long term relationship with fellow Swedish-born songwriter Greek Tony Mavridis, whom she met at a Greek restaurant in Sweden when she was only 19. Greek media already suggested many times that Elena was pregnant and about to get married, but it has all turned out false so far.
