Carola - Suspicious Minds
Ive been working on a show lately named "Elvis Barbra & Me"
(Elvis Barbara & Jag)
Its about her and her parents love to the artists Elvis Presley and Barbra Streisand, Carola has taken the best of those two and did it in a Carola way.
The show begins with Carola´s Dad talking on a film showing clips from her way to the top.
Carola is known artists from Sweden, She was born south of Stockholm in Norsborg, she have a fantastic voice and her star quality is very big.
I have to say I have not been a fan of her, but after I met her and observing her in building up this show, im quite the opposite now. She is very capabel woman, her voice is very broad and without one unclear tone!
This is what Carola says about this show:
It all started a
long time ago, at home with mom and dad in Norsborg. Elvis and Barbra were
always present, always a given in our house.
My dad loved Elvis
and my mother loved Barbra. Elvis with his fabulous voice, his energy,
influenced by rock, blues and country. I was just a kid but I immediately
realized there was something extraordinary about him. And Barbra, with her
deep, movie-like storytelling where every word seemed to be her own and with no
uncertainty as to what the song was about. They were always with us and it was
fantastic to see dad standing in the middle of the living room, playing an
Elvis record really loud and just loving it. A few years ago when I was in the
United States, in Mississippi, I had the opportunity to sing "The wild man
of Telecaster" with Elvis' guitarist, James Burton.
After the concert
James said: "Elvis would have loved you!" That was big, I wish my dad
could have been there. And I wish my mother could have been there when I got
the chance to act in a movie with the one and only Kris Kristofferson, who was
so wonderful in "A star is born" co-starring with Barbra. Elvis and
Barbra are sort of like two fields I have been circling since I was a kid. And
this album is yet another piece of the puzzle in my relationship with them. You
can call this piece a kind of longing for home.
Not the melancholy kind of longing but more like a reminder of all the joy and all the lovely times we had together all thanks to mom and dad.
This is Carola´s homesite!
