Ex-NIGHTWISH Singer TARJA TURUNEN: Video Of St. Petersburg Press Conference Posted Online

A 23-minute video clip of former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen's December 19, 2006 press conference in St. Petersburg, Russia has been made available for download at this location.

As previously reported, Turunen's Christmas album, "Henkäys Ikuisuudesta" (Breath from Heaven), has been certified platinum in Finland for sales in excess of 30,000 copies. The singer also entered the Finnish single chart at position No. 5 with her latest solo release, "You Would Have Loved This".

"You Would Have Loved This" was written by Cori Connors who has also composed for the legendary Linda Ronstadt. The single contains two songs: "You Would Have Loved This" and "Walking in the Air" by Howard Blake. These versions are only available on this single as the album versions of "You Would Have Loved This" and "Walking in the Air" are different.

Commented Tarja: "I found the song 'You Would Have Loved This' from America. The story in the lyrics fits perfectly in this album. It's about the loss of a dear one. With this in mind we did an even more intimate version for album than for the single. It has very touching and beautiful melody."

A video interview (in Finnish, with English subtitles) with Tarja Turunen about her Christmas album can be viewed at this location.
