Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen-Cabuli (born 17 August 1977), known professionally as Tarja Turunen or simply Tarja, is a Finnish singer-songwriter. She is a soprano and has a vocal range of three octaves.[1]

Turunen studied singing at Sibelius Academy and Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe. She is a professional classical lied singer, and the former lead vocalist of the Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, which she founded with Tuomas Holopainen and Emppu Vuorinen in 1996. Their combination of hard and fast guitar riffs with Turunen’s dramatic, “operatic” lead vocals quickly achieved critical and commercial popularity. Their symphonic metal style, soon dubbed “opera metal”, inspired many other metal bands and performers.

“Feliz Navidad”, the Barbuda Relief And Recovery Charity Version is out today! You can find the single on iTunes , Spotify and on the Official store for a dark Christmas Read more at

“With Christmas only being [ 24 ] days away, earMUSIC and Tarja are proud to announce the release of a very special version of “Feliz Navidad”: the Barbuda Relief And Recovery Charity Version.

This September, the Caribbean island of Barbuda has been hit by the category 5 hurricane Irma. The whole population of 1,800 needed to flee their homes in order to survive. Tarja, who has recorded the main part of her vocals for her recently released winter album “from Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a dark Christmas)” on said island and has a very close relationship to the place and its inhabitants, decided that now is the time to help.

Together with friends and fellow musicians such as Michael Monroe, Doro Pesch, Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Marko Saaresto (Poets Of The Fall), Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius), Simone Simons (Epica), Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), Joe Lynn Turner, Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation), Tarja created a new version of the Christmas carol “Feliz Navidad”.

All incomes generated will be donated, with earMUSIC doubling the amount.”

Recommended Video: ‘Happiness’

#HAPPINESS (by Steve Cutts)

Steve Cutts is an illustrator and animator based in London, England.[1] His artwork satirizes the excesses of modern society.[1][2] His style is inspired by 1930s and 40s cartoons, as well as modern comic books and graphic novels.[2]

Before becoming a freelancer in 2012, Cutts worked as an illustrator for the London creative agency Glue Isobar. He worked on digital projects for companies including Coca-ColaGoogleSony, and Toyota.[3]

In 2012, Cutts created his most popular film, MAN, which has environmentalist and animal rights themes. Created with Adobe Flashand After Effects, Cutts describes the film as “looking at mans relationship with the natural world.” The video has over 22 million views on YouTube.[3][4][5]

In January 2016, a Cutts couch gag for a season 27 episode of The Simpsons featured an homage to 1980s action TV shows such as Miami Vice. The video has over 12 million views on YouTube.[6][7][8]

In October 2016, a Cutts video for the song Are You Lost In The World Like Me? by Moby and the Void Pacific Choir addressed smartphone addiction, with Max Fleischer-inspired animation. Moby hired Cutts to create the video after being “amazed and blown away” by his MAN film.[9] The video won the 2017 Webby Award for animation.[10]

In June 2017, Cutts illustrated another video for Moby and the Void Pacific Choir, In This Cold Place from the album More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse.[11][12] Cutts stated that both Moby videos represent “consumerism, greed, corruption and ultimately our self-destructiveness.”[11]

Steve Cutts é um ilustrador e animador inglês[1] que, embora já tenha trabalhado para grandes empresas como Coca-Cola, Sony, Toyota, Reebok, e PlayStation [1]Cutts é reconhecido por algumas das animações de curta duração que produziu. Combinando o uso de softwares como Adobe Flash e After Effects, seus vídeos têm em comum o tom satírico, provocador e polêmico,[2][3] lidando especialmente com questões ligadas à preservação do meio ambiente e dos direitos animais. Seu vídeo Man, publicado em 21 de dezembro de 2012,[4] já obteve mais de 19 milhões de visualizações.[5]

I like to make animations about life and society in general, so there tends to be a message in most of them. The general insanity of mankind is an almost endless pot of inspiration![6]

Outubro Rosa | Pink October (2017)





Outubro Rosa é uma campanha de conscientização realizada por diversos entes no mês de outubro dirigida à sociedade e às mulheres sobre a importância da prevenção e do diagnóstico precoce do câncer de mama.

O movimento surgiu em 1990, na primeira Corrida pela Cura, realizada em Nova York, e desde então, vem sendo promovida anualmente na cidade. O nome remete à cor do laço rosa que simboliza, mundialmente, a luta contra o câncer de mama e estimula a participação da população, empresas e entidades.

Com o intuito de promover um evento para dar atenção a este tópico tão frequente no cotidiano de todos e ao mesmo tempo, fomentar através do esporte uma maior qualidade de vida, o InORP – Instituto Oncológico de Ribeirão Preto idealizou a Corrida Outubro Rosa que será realizada sempre no mês de outubro.

Pink October is an awareness campaign conducted by various bodies in the month of October directed to society and to women about the importance of prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer.

The movement began in 1990, in the first race for the cure, held in New York, and since then, has been organised annually in the city. The name refers to the color of lace rose that symbolizes, globally, the fight against breast cancer and encourages the participation of the population, companies and entities.

With the aim of promoting an event to give attention to this topic so frequent in the everyday life of all and at the same time, encourage through sports a higher quality of life, the InORP – Institute of Oncology Ribeirão Preto envisioned the Pink October Race that will be held during the month of October.
