The first confirmed voice actor to be playing a part in GTA IV became known yesterday. Ruslana, winner of the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest is apparently flying out to New York to record her voice for Grand Theft Auto IV. The character she is voice acting for is being kept a secret for now, and unlike other game publishers, Rockstar like to keep quiet about actors and actresses working on their games, so don't expect any answers soon.
In addition to voicing, the Ukrainian star is also going to have some of her songs used in the soundtrack for the game, both from her previous albums and current album. We'd take a wild guess here and say these will form part of the "Eastern European dance music" radio station which one of the Xbox magazines spoke about a couple of months ago.
You can find out more about Ruslana on her official website.

I remember the days when Ireland use to win Eurovision all the time, now it's just a political thing. Oh I forgot, this is a GTA forum
I've just listened to some of her songs and she's good (In my opinion), I guess Rockstar are really focused on getting this Eastern European theme right.
Heh, well you know how Niko Belic is supposed to be from, like Serbia? Well it just so happens I'm part Serbian myself, and I do in fact know who are the popular new music dance music singers. I mainly joke around about them with my brother, but I do know some of them.
Maybe I'll recognize them!
