Anneli Saaristo turns 68 today. Congratulations!
Anneli started her career in the 70's through various competitions and in the 80's she picked up awards also in international ones (Best female artist in Knokke 1983, Rostock 1985, Dresden 1987) and finally Eurovision song contest 1989 where she scored 7th place with La dolce vita.
That was like a victory for Finns.....
She's also been doing musicals, acted in theater and in films, recorded 11 solo albums (latest one Kissan mieli 2012) and scored countless evergreen classic hits and is known for her a bit more demanding style and sound in the pop scene.
