Commenting on the release of Reflections , Aliki said, "When diagnosed with encephalitis, I remember looking in the mirror, and I could no longer see myself in its reflection. It's a frightening thing, nevertheless it made me stronger, more determined and taught me that life is too short. This album reflects a part of my journey. Each song was chosen carefully, each one marked its part in my life and is a reflection of a thought, a moment - I can't wait to share it with my wonderful fans."
With over 50 million YouTube video views since she appeared on BGT, Aliki has gone on to give performances all around the world, including the USA, Canada, Mexico, Canary Islands, Greece, France and the UK, including concerts for the president of Cyprus and the British Forces in Cyprus.
