Charlie Norman will be a variety show director in Gothenburg this fall. There he will treat us to happy and musical entertainment, and he will do so by hiring a new variety show primadonna, 24 year old Anni-Frid Lyngstad from Eskilstuna.
It will be a new, great chance for the very talented and beautiful singer.
She has, as you might know, worked with Charlie Norman, his son Lennie and Hasse Burman before. Last winter they toured the country with a restaurant show, which received great reviews. Anni-Frid has also worked with Charlie during the summer and his musicians. Last summer she toured the folk parks with Lasse Lönndahl.
Anni-Frid, who comes from Norway, born in Narvik, was only 11 years old when she first entered a stage. Her debut performance was in Eskilstuna, where she has lived ever since she was a little girl. She got her national break on "Hylands Hörna" in the fall of 1967. After that success she also entered Svensktoppen.
But since then she has had some setbacks when it comes to topping the charts. She has been very close a couple of times, but not succeeded.
This spring she participated in Melodifestivalen. But she wasn't lucky to win that either. But many critics claims that she is one of the country's best vocalists. Charlie Norman agrees about that. He thinks that Anni-Frid now will get a great chance to prove her talent. She will be doing it in his variety show at Liseberg.
Last fall Anni-Frid got engaged to Benny Andersson from Hep Stars. She has one marriage behind her and she is the mother of two children, Hans, 6 years old and 2 year old Lise-Lott.
