Vicky Moscholiou (Greek: Βίκυ Μοσχολιού, [ˈvici mosxoˈʎu], 23 May, 1943 – 16 August, 2005), born inMetaxourgeio in Athens, was a Greek singer. On 14 March 2010, Alpha TV ranked Moscholiou the 13th top-certified female artist in the nation's phonographic era (since 1960).
Vicky Moscholiou was born during the German Occupation of Greece, a time of hardship and privation. Her family lived in one room. Her father worked in the vegetable market, and her mother suffered from consumption and received a small allowance. They managed to scrape together the money for a plot of land in Upper Agia Varvara and build a home there. Two more children followed, a brother and sister.
Agia Varvara then, and especially where we lived, was empty. A few houses, endless fields, and quite a few gypsies with their bears and their songs. There was great poverty but I liked it there. I’d wander around barefoot all day, run, play with the other children, fall, hurt myself, get up and do the same all over again. There was however civility and compassion, a feeling for others which I think has slowly vanished with the years.
Her grandfather and grandmother worked at the National Theatre of Greece. He did the lighting, she the costumes. Vicky would go with her grandfather and watch the shows. She dreamed of being an actress, but ended up a singer. *wikepidia*
