   Youngest Successful Singer-world record set by Cleopatra Stratan

  BUCHAREST, Romania 
-- Cleopatra Stratan (Moldavia, b. 6 October 2002) was aged only 3 years when her two hours, 28 songs long concert was performed on August 20, 2006 in Bucharest, Romania.

   The concert was limited to 400 people and Cleopatra Stratan was accompanied on guitar by her father; singer Pavel Stratan (a top Moldavian artist).

  She is actually the first artist ever to perform live on a stage in front of a large audience at the age of 3.

   Same as O-Zone Band, a Romanian and Moldovan band whose "Dragostea din tei" was a major 2004 European hit, Cleopatra Stratan cames from Moldavian Republic.

   During the concert, Cleopatra Stratan launched her first album, “At the Age of 3 " which includes hits such as “Mama" (Mother) and “Ghita" ; she sold more than 150,000 units in four months and has set the world record for the  Youngest singer who recorded an album.

   She is the daughter of a Moldavian singer, Pavel Stratan, who said that he had originally wrote the songs now sang by his child for himself. It seems that Cleopatra follows her father in his career and she is even one step ahead of her parent.

  The most played song of Cleopatra Stratan is "Ghita". "Ghita" is an abreviation for the name Gheorghe.

   Some of her songs have already been translated into English and Spanish.    

  On the Christmas Day 2006 a new record was smashed – Cleopatra was paid 10,000 Euros (like 15,700 USD) for one single song sung in front of a large audience in Piatra Neamt, Romania. The entire sum was then donated to the poor in a TV show.

  In Romania, Moldova, and around the world, there seems to be a growing fan base.    

  On the 10th of May 2007 Cleopatra won three prizes at Romanian Music Awards organized by MTV Romania in Sibiu. "Ghita" - which is the song best known and favourite with the Romanian public - won three awards of which the most important are Best Song and Best New Artist.

Moreover on the 18th of April 2007, Cleopatra Stratan officially made her debut in Japan, with the English version of her well known maxi-single and album “Ghi". The CD contains the songs written by her father and one variant in English of her success.   

  Cleopatra Stratan has just launched her Cleopatra singing-doll last Saturday, selling the first 5,000 lot of dolls in just three days.

   Cleopatra, the doll, is 35 centimeters high and knows to sing “Ghita”. Available at 150 Romanian lei (about $70), the doll 'lives' in a red traveling bag similar to the one that Cleopatra used to carry in her video for Ghita.
   The Spanish company that produces the doll announced it would also come up with clothes for the doll, imitating the apparel used by the little singer on the stage and in videos.

  Kerry Kubilius, a US-based expert on Eastern Europe: "Cleopatra Stratan, the 3 year old who has hit the Romanian music charts big, seems to have become famous because her childlike singing and childlike charms are something different . . . she has not been made into a miniature adult, given the wardrobe of a sex symbol, or been thrust into the latest gore-ridden horror flick.
    In Eastern Europe, children are still children and generally must be protected as such; Cleopatra's father has refused monetary offers to market her. With her oversized suitcase, pink plastic sunglasses, and disheveled pigtails, Cleopatra is singing an innocuous song about a missing person named Ghita, who could be her big brother, uncle, or friend - no innuendos here. Even though it's obvious her voice has been engineered to a certain extent, she's still adorable."

    Cleopatra Stratan has also set the world record for the:
  - youngest artist ever to perform live on a stage in front of a large audience
(for two hours, see video));
  - best paid young singer;
  - youngest music star to receive 3 MTV Awards;
  - youngest performer to record a No. 1 country hit
(previous world record: Jordy, at age of four and a half ).     

  ... After doing all these amazing things, Cleopatra Stratan sets the new world world record for the Youngest Successful Singer.
