Special Saturday Night Performance by... Anna Vissi

With the help of writers and producers Patrick Leonard, Glen Ballard, Dave Stewart, Greg Ladanyi, and CJ Vanston, the album has gone Platinum and continues to flourish in sales throughout her current Greek tour.
ANNA VISSI has been a player in the music industry since 1973, since then going 29 times platinum in Greece. Although her popularity holds strongest in Europe, Vissi has already cracked the American charts with her 2005 single, "Call Me." Continuing her conquest of the U.S., she will return to Los Angeles in the fall to work on her upcoming International release.
