Turunen studied singing at Sibelius Academy and Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe.
Her talent for music was first noted when she sang the song “Enkeli taivaan” (the Finnish version of “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come”) in the Kitee church hall at age three. She joined the church choir and started taking vocal lessons. At age six, she started playing piano.
She is respected by other musicians of the metal genre and is an influence on their work; for instance, Simone Simons of Epica names her as her inspiration to study classical music and apply that vocal style to a metal band.
