Sakis Rouvas was born in the island of Corfu, Greece. Very soon, music and singing became a part of his life. His classmates certainly still remember an unforgattable graduation party where Sakis was the undisputed star of the show as he performed the greatest hits of Elvis and the Beatles. Gymnastics was also his other passion where he achieved distinctive national awards. He also excelled in pole vaulting and, as an exceptional talent that he was, he became a member of the Hellenic National team.
