‘Singing is in my blood. Ever since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed performing … but not being able to be on stage in 2020 I spent a lot of time looking through photo albums, seeing all those happy scenes of childhood, growing up and making music, getting to know my fans and travel the world recording and performing, having fun; those memories fill this book’. 

One of Finland’s biggest singing stars and a judge in that country’s Voice of Finland TV show, world-renowned operatically trained metal singer Tarja Turunen has fans far and wide, from Rio de Janeiro to Moscow, Chihuahua, Chingford and beyond. The Finnish language version of Singing In My Blood became an instant best-seller in Finland on pre-orders alone.
