I guess today I have the most proper night to present you Simon Forsberg, I'll explain why.
Earlier this year Simon was announced as one of Melodifestivalen-2011 participants, he's absolutely new face for Swedish pop-fans as he wasn't mentioned before in any huge releases but it doesn't mean this guy has no music background - before he participated in Fame Factory and different musicals. As well Simon works as personal trainer and he presented Sweden in international athletic competitions but it's time to try music competition. Among rare youtube videos with Simon his cover of "The Christmas Song" is probably the brightest example of what Simon's voice is about. Very strong, high and beautiful vocal that will be singing Fredrik Kempe's song "Tid att andas" in 3rd semifinal of Melodifestivalen-2011. You can watch a small video on Simon's facebook page where orchestra records strings for "Tid att andas" - and it looks impressive and should sound even more impressive! Our most beloved Fredrik Kempe's ballads are "Moving On" written with Sarah Dawn Finer and "Penny On A Sidewalk" written with Sharon Vaughn. Will he be able to write ballad as touching and magig on his own? We put really high hopes on this team of Fredrik and Simon and enjoy this lovely Christmas cover today.
