The elections may have been taking place in Greece, but most Greek Australians were focused on another type of voting that would determine the winner of the Voice.

No sooner was news of Diana Rouvas win announced that Neos Kosmos readers shared and retweeted news of Diana’s success. Congratulations flowed, and readers gushed with joy and pride.

Others wanted to know what her relation to Sakis Rouvas was. Unfortunately, she is not related to Sakis, however she is the daughter of two musicians and grew up surrounded by music. She started singing at four years of age and wrote her first songs at the age of eight.

She left school early to focus on her singing and moved to the United States to advance her career when she was just 17.
