Sochi XXII Winter GamesList of Official Olympic Songs, Artist Names and Events already released prior to the Sochi Olympic Opening Ceremony.

With the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony now over, nearly a billion people will be watching the international athletic sporting events held in, and around various locations near the host city of Sochi, Russia in 2014.

News about the official announcement of the music and artists who performed during the sporting events are likewise, of special interest as the first music performance during the Olympic Opening Ceremony on February 7, 2014 highlight the historic 22nd Winter Games in Russia.

The Sochi Organizing Committee (SOC) didn’t release the official list of artists and their songs prior to the music events, which includes the Olympic Opening Ceremony, Closing Ceremony, and Medal Awards ceremonies, but the good news is that there is a list of official songs and anthems released well before the extravagant Opening Ceremony.

Hits of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games is a song compilation album released earlier, and are likely to be performed at an official venue.

Another song already released is the anthem for the Olympic Torch Relay titled We Are All Under the Sky. The official anthem by the band Kasta was performed by two singers from Russia named Elka and Anton Mishenin.

Olympics Fountain of FriendshipThis anthem was played during Olympic Torch Relay festivals in 2,900 Russian towns and villages. There is also the Sochi Olympic Theme Song titled Reach For The Top, sung by musicians Dima Bilan and Julia Savicheva.

In addition NBC’s coverage of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics included a song by American singer Danielle Bradbery. The song by Danielle Bradbery is titled My Day.

In addition a Russian music group named Red Rocks has been performing live during their nationwide concert tour comprised of 17 Russian cities.

Leading news publishers have implied classical music will be the theme, while another major Russian news source said we can expect a contemporary music theme.

One other news source said the music act Tatu is among the performing artists. Tatu is an international female Russian duo with a pop hit All The Things She Said.

Until the complete list of songs and artists who performed during the Olympic Opening Ceremony are known worldwide and officially announced by the SOC and IOC, here is a preview of official songs already released for the 22nd Winter Games and music to be performed at cultural events during the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

In an earlier article about music related to the Sochi Olympics I let visitors know there are also inspirational songs available on the Olympic YouTube Channel. Most of the music backing the videos is upbeat, electronic songs but there is a lot of inspiring instrumental music played in the videos too.

Olympic International FlagsIf you are one of the estimated one million persons who plan to attend the Sochi Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games there is also a list of artists who will be performing live music and cultural events in and around Sochi.
