Candles and Christmas lights are creating a nice and warm atmosphere here, even though the temperature outside is rough -20° at the moment.
We have seen a beautiful winter sun in these last days only for few hours per day, so the darkness has faded away. It has been just wonderful to watch the sunlight in the trees covered by snow.
The Christmas tour has went really well so far and I have performed with Kalevi, Marzi and Markku already 6 successful Christmas concerts.
Has been a real pleasure to make music together with these brilliant and supportive musicians.
The churches have been so FULL! Somebody said I made history in Haapajärvi church few days ago, since there has never been such amount of people in their church before. The audience was sitting on the floor…unbelievable. I am honoured to be able to perform to such a wonderful audience in my home country still today.
Between my own Christmas concerts, I took part of two charity concerts in Helsinki. The last of these concerts is going to be broadcasted by YLE TV 2 on 25th of December in Finland. It was a nice evening with other Finnish artists and for our pleasure; the President Tarja Halonen delighted us with Her presence.
There is only 1 concert left to perform in Finland on this Finnish Xmas tour, but the tour won’t be over by then.
I will fly to Moscow the day after Seinäjoki concert to perform with an orchestra another kind of Christmas concert. The program of the concert will be … different
I am very happy to return to Russia and to feel how cold it might be there…
One more thing; on my only day off in the last weeks, I went to Petrax Studios in Hollola, Finland to record vocals for one new song.
A song that you might hear pretty soon… it’s not for my album though, but a duet for one very famous and beloved band. Just to give you a clue…
I will leave the announcement for the band to make. I love to keep secrets from you!
See you next time in Seinäjoki!
With love, Tarja
