TARJA TURUNEN Performs With THE 69 EYES Singer On Finnish TV (Video)

Former NIGHTWISH frontwoman Tarja Turunen performed a duet with Jyrki 69 from THE 69 EYES during the "Idols Tekee Hyv" live TV broadcast on the Finnish channel MTV3 on Easter Sunday, April 24. The proceeds of the event, which brought the popular American format "Idol Gives Back" to Finland for the first time, were being directed to education projects for children and teenagers in poverty-stricken countries such as Haiti and Cambodia.

Turunen released a new digital-only single, "Underneath", on April 22. The three-song single was made available Austria, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Ukraine, France and U.K. It includes two unreleased versions of the beautiful ballad "Underneath" plus a non-album track in Spanish language.

03. Montaas De Silencio

In North America, the single will be released on May 24 as an exclusive limited edition seven-inch vinyl with two tracks: "Underneath" (radio mix) and "Underneath" (orchestral mix).

Tarja's sophomore solo album, "What Lies Beneath", sold around 1,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release.
