The Greek America Foundation is proud to announce that Anna Vissi, Greece’s queen of pop, will headline our official after party at Melrose Ballroom following the 2022 Gabby Awards at The Plaza Hotel in New York City.
Vissi will take guests on a journey into “Athens by Night” via Astoria — the Greekest neighborhood in North America — while performing a full set with her complete orchestra from Greece.
Friday, June 3, 2022, will mark the second time that the Greek music legend has graced the stage of our Gabby Awards after party.
She last gave an electrifying performance to more than 350 guests in June 2017 in the grand ballroom of The Plaza Hotel after our awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall.
Over the course of her career Vissi has released more than two dozen albums, most of which have been certified at least gold in Greece and Cyprus. She has also starred in three theatrical productions and briefly ventured into television and radio.
Vissi has a large number of successful singles, most of which have become classics, including her signature songs “Dodeka,” “Methismeni Politia,” “Oso Exo Foni,” “Pragmata,” “Agapi Ipervoliki,” “Psihedelia,” “Ta Mathitika Hronia,” “Treno,” “Stin Pira,” “Atmosfaira Ilektrismeni,” “Gkazi” and many many more.
Over the years she has kept a strong fan base while hosting sold-out tours and shows throughout the world.
