yesterday me and Johan had the pleasure of going to a concert with CAROLA, the singer that some of you might know from winning the Eurovision concert some years ago. She´s been my inspiration as a singer from I was young and I´ve seen here a couple of times during the years. Last time I saw her was also a x-mas show from the album recorded in Betlehem.
This x-mas she´s released a new album and I hadn't heard more than one song before we went and it was nice to not knowing how it would sound. The album has been said to be more intimate and different from her other albums and I must say that I agree. And in a good way I have to add!
Carola is known for her amazing strength in singing and these songs were so soft, so gentle and with such emotions that not only I cried during several songs but also some big men sitting next to me cried. She talked between the songs about her childhood x-mases and both her parents passed away some years and she talked a lot about her father. When she sang the song dedicated to him I cried so much that I almost felt I had to go to the toilet but I had to really breathe through it and cope=) The song is called VINTERSÅNG
THAT is for me what a great concert is about, touching someone as she did last night.
A truly amazing album and I´ve listened all day long and have so many favorites but the song to her father VINTERSÅNG and TRO PÅ EN MORGON are so amazing!
I loved it and am so thankful for such an amazing evening=)
