“I am honored and proud to be an Ambassador of The Encephalitis Society. Their work is extraordinary. They strive hard as a team to better the lives not only of the people affected by this terrible illness, but also their families and loved ones who have to deal with this. As one of the individuals affected by Encephalitis, I was deeply touched when asked to be one of their Ambassadors. I feel it is my duty to help others in times like this, so I try to be as involved as I can.” – Aliki
inspiration for life
Aliki became known on the global music scene following her success on the 7th season of Britain’s Got Talent in 2013, where she impressed the judges with her charismatic technique and emotional interpretations.
“You have a natural talent. You are stunning, beautiful, humble.”
Simon Cowell, Britain’s Got Talent
“You are like an angel sent from heaven. You are perfect and you were a star tonight.”
David Walliams, Britain’s Got Talent
In 2015 she toured in the U.K., the United States, Canada and Greece with the Awakenings Tour, a tour dedicated to raise awareness for the Encephalitis Society, through her inspirational story, a cause very close to her heart. Aliki has been named Global Honorary Ambassador for the Encephalitis Society and actively supports the society’s mission and global charity projects.
In 2016, Aliki recorded her first international album called Reflections with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra with songs featuring a blend of passionate classics from both musicals and opera and the movies to the more contemporary melodies.
Reflections is a journey. A gathering of memories and influences. It’s important for Aliki to sing melodies that have the power to move her. So this album reflects a part of Aliki’s journey. Each song was chosen carefully, each one marked a part in my life, made me grow and is a reflection of a thought, a moment. The album features works by Puccini, Gounod, Dvorak, Webber, Lara, Rota, and more. It covers a vast repertoire of opera, musical theatre and popular songs in order to appeal to lovers of both classical and contemporary music.
