* International singing star NanaMouskouri recorded many songs in a remarkably wide range of languages ranging from her native Greek; to English, French, Spanish, and German; to Maori and Turkish; even Mandarin Chinese. Sometimes even switching languages in the same song -- For example, in her rendition of Welsh folk song "Ar Hyd Y Nos" ("All Through the Night") she the first verse in the original Welsh, then immediately follows with the English translation).
