Rock Was A Challenge For Former Nightwish Vocalist Turunen
Tarja tells Transilvania Culturala: "It was a huge challenge, it still is a huge challenge to sing rock, because I never thought of becoming one of the most followed female singers in rock genre.
"But I took the challenge, because I love the music, and it's all about that. There are no borders in music in general. When I'm doing something, I do it with my heart. And so if I feel good about something, I'm going for it 100%. That's been my passion in that sense, in music, to feel free.
"But the transition took time. It took years to really feel comfortable with the voice during the rock performances and on the stage. I wanted to do my best. I really worked very hard, but I had no teacher to teach me to sing rock. I kept on taking lyrical singing lessons, and that's what really made me stronger in rock singing." Read more here.
