Cleopatra Stratan (born October 6, 2002) is Moldovan singer, the youngest person ever to score commercial success as a singer. She holds the record for the highest paid young artist that performed live for two hours in front of a large audience. The youngest artist to receive an MTV award and the youngest artist to score a No.1 hit in a country. As of late 2011, Cleopatra and her family have relocated and are living in Pipera in the capital of Romania, Bucharest.
Pavel Stratan, father of Cleopatra, was in a studio recording a song with three-year-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, and suggested 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 named that Cleopatra Stratan. Some of her songs have already been translated into English and Spanish. 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 December 2006, Cleopatra’s biggest hit is the song “Ghiţa”.
