Wow. This makes me sad. I was a big fan of Sandra with the band and I loved the album she did with them, Catharsis. She was a great addition to the band and some of her songs were very touching to me on a personal level, particularly "Rainbow" which I blogged about here. Sandra is a great vocalist and I wish her all the best on whatever path she takes, and the same goes with the band, too.
I dearly want to thank all the Elis fans, who gave me such a warm welcome! I hope we will see eachother again!
With all my best wishes,
She alludes in her statement that Elis has found a replacement already, so I am very curious to see who that will be.
