Vietnamese Swedish Singer Caught The Attention

Overseas Vietnamese singers are not only popular in Vietnamese communities but also with native Europeans.
   Vietnamese Swedish singer Alice Svensson has also caught the attention of local audiences when she made it to the final round of the 2008 Swedish Idol contest, one of the country’s most popular TV programs.
   She was chosen as one of the top-five viewer’s choice contestants.
   Her charm and her strong, resonant voice, like that of a 70’s soul singer, won over the judges.
   The final results of this contest are expected to be announced next month.
   Svensson, born in 1991 in Hanoi, Vietnam was adopted by a Swedish family when she was only 10 months old, and has since lived in Gavle.
   The 17-year-old also won the 2007 Music Popcorn contest and played piano for a rock band.
   Svensson, who says music is her life, began studying music at the Jazz School in Vasaskolan last year.
   One of her hit songs, “Heaven’s On Fire,” was listed for one week on the Sweden Singles Top 60.
