#BIRTHDAY: Carola from Sweden is 54 today

#BIRTHDAY: Carola from Sweden is 54 today

We know you like our birthday feature. Well this is one you won’t want to miss. Sweden is – in some eyes – the pinnacle of Eurovision-ness. So when a Swedish birthday comes along, we’re going to celebrate it.

Today’s birthday girl is the one and only Carola Maria Häggkvist. Unless you’re Nordic, this might be a mouthful, so she’s one of those mononymous types. Just think Madonna but Stockholmare instead. Anyway, she’s in that elite group of people who have been a named performer three times. And another elite group of people that have won. Just picture that Venn diagram. Anyway, this video is her first foray onto the big stage, when she was a mere teenager with high hopes. She finished third, and it was a close run thing, finishing behind Luxembourg and Israel. Watch and enjoy.
