Kalliopi "Peggy" Zina (Καλλιόπη "Πέγκυ" Ζήνα ) is a modern Greek singer.

Zina was born in Athens, Greece, on March 8, 1975, the daughter of singer Stella Chrysikopoulou. She began taking music lessons at the age of 5 and performed publicly while still in school.

At the same time, Peggy enrolled in dance and performance classes and appeared in a series of plays at her school. Though she was experiencing a certain amount of fame in Athens, Peggy eventually decided to move to Thessaloniki, well known for its busy music scene.

It was there that Peggy began to take the first steps toward cementing her status as a performer. Though her first album in April 2000 was appreciated by her fans, it didn’t make much of a dent on the charts. But in 2002, she finally made a big impact on the European community with her hit song "Love Is a Wonderful Thing."

This hit led to a lucrative contract with MINOS-EMI, and it wasn’t long before Peggy's fame began to rise. Although she has toured all over the world -- including Canada, the United States, Australia, and London -- she is most well-known in her home country of Greece. In 2005, Peggy won Greece’s ARION Award for Female Singer of the Year. Her newest CD, "Ena", is currently a hit.
