Marie Fredriksson sings at the Swedish royal wedding

We got to know a couple of days ago that Marie Fredriksson and her husband Mikael Bolyos would attend the wedding of Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill today in Stockholm, but we were all surprised when Marie started to sing at the wedding ceremony.

She sang “Ännu doftar kärlek”, with Micke on the piano.  The whole performance was very beautiful and touching. See by yourself!


You can find pictures of the performance on our Facebook page and follow the wedding on SVT Play from all around the world.

You can see the performance on SVT Play too.

[Update June 10] There is a short interview with Marie on SVT about her performing “Ännu doftar kärlek” at the wedding.

Special Gessle song for Victoria & Daniel! More to come!

From June 18:
According to Aftonbladet, Per surprised Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling with a performance of a brandnew song at yesterday’s party. Aftonbladet describes it as a romantic ballad specially written for the couple. But that’s not all, there’s another song to be revealed at the actual wedding party – where Roxette will perform on Saturday! We don’t know yet if any of these songs are to be released by Roxette or who will sing the song on Saturday. Stay tuned! 😀

Thanks abysmo for the newstip!

Update, June 28: As tevensso reports at TDR, “Per says he did not perform a song for the couple on Thursday.”

So either the “special song” story was totally made up or the song was presented without a live performance. Also the rumours about Roxette performing a new song at the wedding party on Saturday were not true.

German and Austrian media report about Roxette’s performance at the Royal Wedding

RTL’s Exclusiv (see online, minute 7) from Friday 11th of June reported about Princess Victoria’s wish to have Roxette perform at her wedding. During the same day various German and Austrian newspapers reported about an article published by “Stockholm newspapers”, where it was mentioned that Roxette would perform AT the wedding.

We knew Per and Marie would perform at the concert the day before, but on Saturday? After some searching, we found the source of the news: Expressen. According to this article, the duo is going to perform both days:

Friday 18th: at the parliment concert in Konserthuset following artists are expected to perform: Roxette, Malena Ernman, Helen Sjöholm, Magnus Uggla, Sarah Dawn Finer and Peter Jöback.
Saturday 19th: During the wedding ceremony Björn Skifs and Agnes  will perform a duett. Daniel’s relatives “Westlings spelmän” will also perform in the church, while Cotton Club, Jessica Andersson, Carola, Kayo and Roxette are to perform during the party in the palace.

Regarding TV Broadcast and live-stream, this is what I could find out until now on SVT’s website:

Friday 18th:

On SVT Play scroll down until you find the list of shows to be streamed on Friday 18th and you’ll find this text

0:30 – 22:45  Det kungliga bröllopet – Festföreställning Konserthuset

  • Livesändning Fre 18 jun Festkonserten från Konserthuset i Stockholm är en gåva till kronprinsessparet från Sveriges Riksdag och därmed svenska folket. Det musikaliska programmet innehåller Sveriges yttersta elit inom såväl klassisk musik som populärmusik, och de framträder tillsammans med Kungliga Filharmonikerna. Drygt 290 medverkande kommer att förenas i en hyllning till kärleken.

Which means that the concert should be seen on the website, question is if due to copyright, if citizens outside Sweden will be able to see this stream.

Saturday 19th:

SVT seems to be reporting and live-streaming the whole day about the wedding, starting at 07:55. Can also be found on SVT Play.
