The amazing and talented Romina Arena has overcome adversity to become a true Star the world over. At the tender age of sixteen she suffered a vicious attack at the hand of a jealous Entertainer in Italy having her throat cut and vocal cords severed, rendering her comatose for more than 18 months. Romina with true determination not only survived the attack, but also completely recovered to become a European Superstar with a five octave vocal range.
