The soprano who specializes in morphonutrition and the Physician Nutrition Specialist who specializes in songs are joined under the name of Dr Maria Missirlis!
The Physician and soprano Maria Missirlis, MD, was born in Brussels and was raised in Athens. At an early age she showed an exceptional voice timbre and singing abilities. In the following years, her love for music motivated her to start studies in piano, classical ballet and contemporary dance in order to develop the strong musical aptitude she had inherited from her father Tony Missirlis. Tony was a renowned composer and singer of the 70s, who gave up a promising career when he suddenly disappeared while being on a tour with Panos Gavalas in 1977, leaving little Maria fatherless. Maria tried to keep the memory of her father alive through the musical notes he had so much loved. The case of the missing father was even noticed by Angeliki Nikolouli, renowned TV presenter specializing in missing persons investigations, who devoted two of her TV-reality shows titled “Tunnel” to it, in which both Maria and her mother took part.
