Greece's GOD


Since the beginning of his career,  Sakis Rouvas has been considered as analogous to Michael Jackson to Greece.[85] Rouvas has played a major role in the popularization of Western music genres and in the development of pop music in the Greek industry and breaking cultural barriers and being widely credited as the genres primary performer.[86] In 2006, Pavlos Zervas of MusicCorner alleged that Rouvas was the primary performer supporting the pop/dance genre in Greece with such success.[87] Jarmo Siim of the EBU characterized Rouvas as "undoubtedly the ultimate pop star in Greece with great international appeal."[88] In the early 1990s, Rouvas became a dominant figure in Greek music, gaining notoriety for having a mass fanbase, especially with youth, leading to him being recognized as a phenomenon, a first in Greek music
In addition to musical influences, Rouvas' work has been influenced by literature, Greek art, and spirituality. He has credited his success to his faith, which he associated with more as he got older, saying "I am very thankful. I feel blessed. And everyday I thank God for that. Everyday. That is something that I didn't do in the past. Once, I didn't understand, I didn't value."[83] He has a close personal relations with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople,[84] whom offered to baptize his first-born child.
