Totally agree with this!Demy is a hopeful young singer,ok,i'm not really a big fun of her music,but for her age she managed to have some advantages at her work(a quite low profile and a clear pop style).But for me,a problem of her,Ivi Adamou and some other new artists is that,as you said,they maybe could never have the publicity,the sells and the promotion that Helena(and not only of course)had in the pro-crisis and CD era.Generally i think that the Greek music industry have many years to create a really big star(from the younger generation of course)and the previous reasons contribute in this.The main difference for me between Helena and the younger Greek singers is that Helena(with Antique and at her solo career) brought something new in the Greek music(for me she brought the European style pop)and for a big era she was the only one that represent it here in compare with most of the new singers(Demy included)that their style is quite similar with a very little personal identity.
Couldn't agree more with your analysis.

No she isn't, but both she and Ivi Adamou are marketed similarly to the way Helena was marketed at the beginning of her career. They are supposed to talk, look and sound like girl next doors and I am not just talking about their music, it's about their public image.
