However, Czechoslovakia met some dark years during which the Communists had a strong-hold of the whole of the Czech Republic. At this time, if any artists wanted to perform or get tours in Prague, they had to have very good connections with the right people. In 1989, many artists fell from fame; Helena Vondrackova among them. After this fall, it took a long time for some fallen artists to emerge again, while others never got back into the business at all. After eight long years after the fall, Helena Vondrackova rose back to her rightful throne and continued with a few more years in the music industry of Czechoslovakia with her amazing gift of voice.
