What a great time I’ve had in Mississippi!!
Week began in Jackson with rehearsals with a great band!
The musicians were from Nashville and Jackson.
The rest of the week was filled with even more rehearsals and interviews for radio and newspapers.
The concert at The Auditorium was on Thursday. The place was sold out and it went really great!
The musicians played awesome and it really sounded good!
Thanks guys and girls!
The day after we all went down to the coast to Biloxi to get ready for the annual NGA event (National Governor’s Association).
It was 36 years ago Mississippi hosted this event where all governors from the US gather for meetings and entertainment.
And there was I – little Beatrice from Sweden. It sure felt special. What an honour!
Other artists were r n’ b singer Brandy, Paul Overstreet songwriter from Nashville, The Williams Brothers and Eddie Cotton.
The show became a success! The audience was very pleased and so was I.
The day after, I went down to New Orleans to sing at the Scandinavian church. We also got to see the town a little.
New Orleans is really cool.
Then back to Biloxi again for meetings and pool party :).
Check out the pictures!
Now we have landed in New York. Yesterday I had a concert at the Swedish Church on Manhattan. That was a lot of fun.
Now I’m just gonna enjoy the city for a couple of days.
Dinner tonight :).
It sounds gooood..
We’ve had some really inspiring, creative and fun days in the studio.
Been recording three new songs.
In the pictures:
Per Lindvall (drums), Sebastian Robertsson (piano), Esbjörn Öhrwall (guitar), Robban and Robban
Couple of days ago I played at Berns. I was the opening act for Per-Erik Hallin (he once played with Elvis!! You can say he is the Swedish James Burton ;)..) and his band. And it was not just any band…Per Lindvall, Sven Lindvall, Peter Hallström, Staffan Astner, Sebbe Nyhlund, Frank Ådahl just to mention a few.
Mats Öberg, Cindy Peters and Carola were guest appearance.
It was real crowded. People were standing like packed herrings… as we say in Sweden 😉
I really enjoyed playing and it was a very fun gig! The response from the crowd was great.
Per-Erik was fantastic! And the band too.
Yesterday I sang at a women’s conference in Stockholm.
It was a conference to encourage women with leader positions.
The place was packed with cheering girls, women, ladies and chicks.
It was so inspiring standing in front of all these hungry women and singing “…now the wind is blowing my way and I’m learning to fly and as I’m drifting on the highway I am leaving the ground. Here I come!!”
I like girl power…
We need that. We need to get together and encourage each other.
Hello! I really hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2009 started out great!
I have had a well-deserved, long and nice Christmas. I’ve been spending most of the holiday in my hometown Örnsköldsvik with my family and friends.
We had a lot of snow and the weather was sunny and cold, so I took many nice and long walks on the frozen lake. Me like… On the evening of Christmas eve I sang in the church were I grew up. My brother Richard backed me up with his guitar, Sebastian played the piano and my cousin Patricia sang one song with me. It was nostalgia.
The country shows in November and December went great! The show was filled with energy, humour and dance and off course a lot of great music. I had a blast! And I think everybody that came to see us also had a good time. Thank you Jultorp ranch for having us.
I have posted some pictures from the show. Check it out!
You can also find pictures of me as Lady Marmalade. A performance I did at a big event at Cirkus in Stockholm in November. People didn’t recognize me with all the make up. Do you?
In December I also performed at a charity concert in Örebro together with Paul Mac Innes and the gospel choir Joybells. That was a lot of fun :). The church was packed and having that great chior backing you up was awsome! Joybells rules ; )
Now I’m back in Stockholm and continuing my song writing. I’ve also been in the studio a couple of days trying out some new songs and it feels really good. I think I’m on to something…
So long my friends!
