Agnetha says in a frank meeting with Ulf Elfving about childhood and the early dreams of becoming a singer, about the time with ABBA, the relationships and how the band broke up.

– I probably got the blame for it at one time, says Agnetha Fältskog.
She also tells of the quieter time afterwards, the comeback and the life she lives today.

Now start’s the Ulvaeus ABBA Choir!

14 12 2013

 

So you can be enlisted to ABBA’s new singing group

ulvaeus

In April it is 40 years since ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest with ” Waterloo” .
But does a reunion sound possible – now starts an Abba- choir instead.
– It’s a complete impossibility that we will be reunited so then they thought that ” oh, let’s do a choir instead ,” says Björn Ulvaeus .
A potential reunion of Abba is a constant talking point .
Now that the next year is 40 years since ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton with ” Waterloo” is speculated something will happen more than ever.
Especially after Agnetha Fältskog , 63, in an interview with a German newspaper has opened up an opportunity :
– Obviously, something we think about, ‘she said.
” A complete impossibility”
But now  Björn Ulvaeus puts down his foot once and for all .
Instead, he is committed to an Abba- choir which will now be formed along with the Abba Museum and Aftonbladet.
– Because it’s a complete impossibility that we will be reunited so they thought ” oh, let’s do a choir instead .” And now it’s on time , he says to Aftonbladet .
” Egoistic reasons”
Choir’s & Singers from across the country can apply for a place in the choir , which will consist of 50 people. For Abba , it feels like a celebration .
– It feels great , to hear what you have written , sung by a great choir, it is wonderful for an author , so there’s a little selfish reasons there too, I want to hear it .
How does it feel to hear his work being sung by a choir ?
– There is a difference when you hear a choir sing anything other than a soloist , it raises some other emotions. And we’ll choose  songs from the catalog to be fit for a choir , so you may perhaps hear the songs in a different way . It is always exciting , he says.  And a possible Album?
