heres a little bio i found of her, appropriate for her thread:
::BIO:: (credit: by jessica ball)
Name: Tarja Turunen
Date of birth: 17th of August 1977
Place of residence: Helsinki, Finland
Musical background: Began playing piano at age six followed by flute a few years later. Majored in classical singing and music theatre at the music high school in Savonlinna before studying church music at Sibelius Academy.
Tarja Turunen was born on 17th of August 1977, in Helsinki, Finland. At that time, certainly nobody expected that the bright-eyed baby would make it into the Heavy Metal scene in Finland, let alone all over the world!
"I know what I want" - The words that Tarja Turunen spoke when she was just six years old. Ever since then, Tarja knew she wanted to be a singer, â€śTheatricalâ€ť would explain young Tarja in one word. Her parents saw her musical talent and sent Tarja to a music school where she studied piano, this was still at only six years old. At the age of fifteen came the life changing moment however, Tarja took her first singing lesson.
At first Tarja didn't sing classical singing, she was singing songs by the likes of Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Madonna and only became interested in classical singing at the age of seventeen. At the age of eighteen, Tarja became one of the youngest students to enter the Finnish Music Academy and at that same time, Nightwish was born.
Tarja is perhaps responsible for Nightwishâ€™s evolution into a metal band, as her voice was said to be too strong for an acoustic guitar and keyboards in the bands original acoustic material. Now, seven years on, Tarja's voice is at it's peak. She is one of the most talented women in the metal scene, and reaches high above some male singers in metal too.
Recently, Tarja has studied classical music in Karlsruhe, Germany and is about to embark upon her own solo career, although she will of course remain in Nightwish for the foreseeable future.

THE RELEASE OF THE NEW DVD IS IN DANGER TO BE POSTPONED!
According to Finnish tabloid â€śIltalehtiâ€ť (3.2.06) the release of the â€śEnd Of An Eraâ€ť â€“liveDVD is in danger to be postponed due to some unexpected problems in contracts. Riku PĂ¤Ă¤kkĂ¶nen, the chief executive of Spin-Farm tells that Tarjaâ€™s manager Marcelo Cabuli is demanding the Spin-Farm -company, Nightwish as a band and the management staff to sign a contract that no one of them is allowed to say anything about Tarja or Marcelo, or anything related to them, without written permission from Marcelo. This kind of contract would practically prevent the publishing of the Nightwish â€“book this spring as well. â€śWe really found the proposal to be strange and soon realized that this kind of a paper cannot be signed. You canâ€™t make contracts like thisâ€ť says Riku PĂ¤Ă¤kkĂ¶nen in Iltalehti arcticle. There would be a 250 000 Euros fine for breaking the contract.
The concert in Hartwall-Arena is about to be released as a DVD and as a live-album. To do that the agreement from all the parties is needed and because of this unfortunate mess it seems hard to get one member to sign.
In worst case Finnish fans will have to order their copy of the DVD from outside the Scandinavia.
â€śMaybe one could see this as another example how the fans are treated..â€ť says Tuomas in Iltalehti article.

GREETINGS FROM TUOMAS
It`s been 3 months since the last show in Hartwall Arena and things are finally calming down. I just read through the yet unfinished version of the upcoming Nightwish-book. I was very impressed. It made me feel nostalgic, happy, ashamed and sad at the same time. This book is written by Mr. Mape Ollila and it`s being finished as we speak. The Finnish version of the book will be released in May. Also the live dvd "End Of An Era" will be released later this year but we have no information about the exact release date yet.
At the moment I`m occupied with writing songs for the next Nightwish album. 14 pieces done so far. I`m also participating in Timo Rautiainen`s solo album, the new For My Pain album, and some KotiteollisuusÂ´ live gigs before summer. With Nightwish we will start rehearsing the new stuff in June, entering the studio in September. Again we will write a diary through this site so you guys know what`s happening while in the studio. New Nightwish-homepage will also see daylight soon.
At the moment Emppu has his own side projects, Marco is working with the new Tarot-album and Jukka is busy with his new project, unrelated to music business.
The new singer will be announced through this site when the time comes. Please believe in nothing that`s not confirmed on this page.

Thanks. Saw couple of those in last weeks City Mag, if I right recon.
And If You have more, please keep ´em coming! I don´t care weather she is or was or not in Nightwish. Huge mistake to kick her out, cause they haven´t and they can´t replace her.
