TARJA: Second 'Until My Last Breath' Video Released

The second video for "Until My Last Breath", a brand new song from former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen, can be viewed below. Tarja says, "We filmed it with my talented friends from Same eYes company in Kuusankoski and Kouvola in Finland."

She adds, "The most important thing was to get Mr. Arvi Lind as our guest for the video. Arvi is one of the most-known news anchors from Finland.

"It was fun to search old photos and check some filmed material for the video.

"I am happy with the final result. My friends did great!
