Biography

Cleopatra Stratan (born October 6, 2002 in Chişinău, Moldova), the daughter of Moldovan-Romanian singer, Pavel Stratan, is one of the youngest people ever to score commercial success as a singer, with her 2006 album “La Vârsta De Trei Ani” (“At the age of 3”).

Pavel Stratan, father of Cleopatra, was in a studio recording a song with 3 years old Cleopatra hanging around. Impulsively, she grabbed a microphone and started singing along with Pavel. Everybody was stunned so they ended up recording the song with Cleopatra performing the lead vocals rather than Pavel. The song was “Mama” (mother). After that, Cleopatra recorded several other songs, basically a full album, and eventually performed some concerts.

Some suggest that as she is younger than Shirley Temple, she should be included in the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest talent ever to perform on stage and record her own album.

La Vârsta De Trei Ani” (“At the age of 3”) was a double platinum disk in the summer of 2006 for selling more than 150,000 albums in Romania. In December 2006, her father announced that until the next album (possibly in one or two years), she will no longer sing publicly.

As of 2006, Cleopatra’s biggest hit is the song “Ghiţă”. In the clip “Ghiţă” apparently she sings about a boyfriend named Ghiţă (a name derived from the Romanian equivalent of “George”). Actually, as also explained in some interviews, “Ghiţă” means happiness, destiny, life, etc. that a little child like her is seeking for.
