Sissel Kyrkjebø & Odd Nordstoga - Upp Gläd Er Alla

Sissel Kyrkjebø,(born 24 June 1969 in Bergen) also simply known as Sissel, is a Norwegian soprano. She is best known for singing the Olympic Hymn (Hymne Olympique) at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway, for duets with Plácido Domingo, Charles Aznavour, José Carreras, Neil Sedaka, Warren G, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Josh Groban, Diana Krall, Russell Watson and The Chieftains, and her participation on the Titanic film soundtrack.

During this weekend she visit Stockholm and the Globe with her Christmas tour together with Odd Nordstoga, Real Group, Orsa Spelmän and Krister Henriksson. It was a nice evening with a little different layout that i am use to see when Christmas music is played. The crew was nice, the lightning guy was pretty good with his cues and it was kinda cool to bump into Christer and Sami again.

Here is picture just before the show started, nice position.

Todays tune "Upp gläd er alla" is a Christmas carol with old lyrics by Thomas Kingo (Swedish translation by Py Bäckman), to a new tune by Odd Nordstoga. The song is released on the 2009 album "Strålande jul" with Sissel Kyrkjebø and Odd Nordstoga. This video: Live at the Swedish/Norwegian talkshow "Skavlan", Nov. 5, 2009. Enjoy!
