Sanni Mari Elina Kurkisuo, popularly known as Sanni, is a Finnish singer, songwriter as well as an actor. She, at the age of just eight, won the prestigious Napero-Finlandia competition. Over 3,000 fairy tales had been sent in by different participants but it was her story ‘Bird, who wanted to sing’ which won the title. Growing up in a family where music was very important, she was influenced by her mother’s singing background. She started taking an interest in music at as early as five years of age. At the age of twenty, she was launched by ‘Warner Music Finland’, who released her debut studio album titled ‘Sotke Mut’ (which translates to ‘Mess me up’ in English). It went on to be certified platinum, which speaks a lot about her talent. In addition, Sanni has delivered several singles that have featured in the top charts over the years, including ‘Prinsessoja ja astronautteja’, ‘2080-luvulla’, and ‘Että mitähän vittua’. Also an occasional actress, Sanni appeared in the 2012 Finnish film ‘Miss Farkku-Suomi’, playing a very important role.
