Anastacia performs tonight at Polyvalent Hall

Nicknamed “The Voice,” Anastacia included Romania in this year’s world tour. Today’s Bucharest show will benefit of the impressive production brought from the USA and of a few special moments.


The Romanian singer Claudia Cream will be opening act of the performance, organizer Media Services Events informs.


Anastacia Lynn Newkirk, famous for songs such as “I’m Outta Love,” “Paid My Dues,” “Cowboys and Kisses,” “Left Outside Alone,” or “Sick and Tired” was born in Chicago, in September 1968, yet she moved in New York in her teens, beside her mother, sister and brother, after her parents’ divorce.


In 1999, she signed a contract with Epic Records and a year later, she released her debut album “Not That Kind.” The first single “I’m Outta Love” launched Anastacia into stardom throughout Europe, Asia and Australia. Her next album “Freak of Nature” brought the same mix of extraordinary pop and dance beats, and the artist passionately revealed her vocal gifts and her maturity as a lyrics author.


In 2003, after attending a treatment versus cancer, the artist defeats her disease. As a retrospective of her condition, Anastacia explained why she chose a rock sound for her third album “Anastacia” in 2004. “I felt the urge to fight, and therefore, I chose guitars and instruments with an attitude.”


In April 2008, Anastacia signed a contract with Sony Records and started working on her new album, “Heavy Rotation.” For this album, the artist has worked with reputed names of the music industry: Rodney Jerkins (Grammy-award winner), Guy Chambers (a former collaborator of Robbie Williams), Def Jam, Ne-Yo, Lester Mender (Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Dido), JR Rotem (Rihanna, Lil Kim, Leona Lewis) and the Heavyweights (Missy Elliott and the Pussycat Dolls).


The artist sold a total of over 17 million copies of her albums in Europe and Australia.


Anastacia will continue her tour in the following cities: St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Soenderborg, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Baden Baden, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Ireland, Manchester, Zurich, Verona, Lucca, Taormina, Roma, Graz, Prague, Madrid, Valencia, Guimares, Moscow, Bratislava, Luxemburg and Lisbon.
