Amanda Jenssen - Happyland
Jenny Amanda Katarina Jenssen (born Bengtsson, 12 September 1988 in Lund, Sweden) is a Swedish singer and Idol 2007 runner-up. Jenssens first album released in 2008 became one of that years most sold music albums in Sweden which saw it peak at number 1 on the Swedish album chart. She also had success with her music singles, with seven individual placements on the Swedish single chart for her songs.
Happyland is the second album by Swedish singer Amanda Jenssen, who finished second in Idol 2007. It was released on October 28, 2009. The first single off the album was the title track "Happyland" and it was released September 28, 2009 and entered the Swedish Singles chart at number 3. Yesterday Amanda Jenssen had a show at Debaser Medis here in Stockholm with a full band and the venue was almost sold out, witch is very good for her indeed, i was only able to catch the last four songs (I choose you, Sing me to sleep, Happyland and Minnie) She has a really great voice and are a great performer, the band backing up her is doing a great job.
This was the last show on tour, you could notice that some of the stuff had been used well as for example the "Happyland" neon sign where parts of the sign was broke and missing, almost that the sign sayed Lappland :)
Todays tune is the title track from her latest album "Happyland", this clip is from the TV-show "Go'kväll" October 2009.
