Charity concert at Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre

Image
Just before Christmas we were proud to be invited to take part in a charity gala concert "Under samma himmel" at Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre to collect money to refugees.

Together with the blind fluitist Wu Jing we performed our song Stilla ro. A great orchestra was backing up and we also had Elin (Linda's daughter) as a backing vocalist. Thanks to Isabelle Andö for arranging this amazing concert!



Eurovision Club Germany - Eurovision gig

We had the pleasure of being invited to take part as artists by Eurovision Club Germany at Clubtreffen in Cologne, Germany where we performed at GLORIA THEATER with two shows of mixed Eurovision songs. We had a blast and the audience were also up on stage with us doing some moves. Thanks for having us, we would love going back some day.

















Disney show with Rising Star

Image
We started vocal coaching with children in Lilla Albyskolan in Sundbyberg this year and did our first show with girls and boys aged 7-10 in the food court of the school! So many people came to watch and brought their own fika and the choir did a great job performing Disney hits with moves, singing in microphones and showing their best on stage!

Bronze in Baltic song contest

Image
After two songs in Eurovision Belarus and a few attempts we finally got the chance to take part in the Baltic Song Contest in Karlshamn, Sweden and to meet Janet in our own country! We received the bronze and prize money in the contest with You will be here and the Russian song Davaice sambraremska razam. We were met with great hospitality at the yearly Summer festival held in the south of Sweden in a beautiful venue in the Town house. The contest was also broadcasted on TV by the arrangers. After the show Janet also visited us in Stockholm for some sightseeing.

A professional live orchestra were playing our songs on stage. Watch live here:  Great audience and Summer vibe on stage!
Watch us winning the bronze prize here:
It was a big challenge for us to do the backing vocals in Russian for Janet's song Davaice sambraremska razam. But we love to sing in different languages and this time we had no option as the arrangers had the decision of picking songs and wanted her to perform in her…
