Alexander Rybak invited his fans to a Meet & Greet in Warsaw, Poland. 

Some happy fans who got the chance to meet him want to share with us their great moments from this meeting with Alexander. Enjoy reading these nice reports 🙂 

“I’m ready for hugs. Wednesday, after a hard days studio work, I’ll be hanging around hotel Indigo, Warsaw (Smolna 40) ca.19.00 NO MORE MORE PRESENTS PLEASE, I just want to see some new and old Polish mafia members.”-Alexander Rybak

After a busy day of working with music producers SOF productions, Alexander had some free time to meet his Polish fans.  Despite feeling a little sick he was determined not to let his fans down and took along lots of vitamins and medicines to boost his fans immunity after meeting him.  However I don’t think we can ever be immune to his charm. As you can read below for yourselves in this collection of warm reports from fans who were present… (and an extra report from one who was not).

Fan reports from Alexander Rybak’s Meet & Greet in Istanbul, Turkey. 

“I’ve decided to meet y’all and say hello and give you a hug” – Alexander Rybak

On 10th August 2017, Alexander delighted his European fans by the sudden announcement he would be arranging three meet and greets in the next week since he was having business meetings and studio sessions in Europe.

The first one was in Turkey on 13th August where he made the bold promise:

“I will be hugging each and every one who comes tomorrow to the beautiful roof of Mr.Cas Hotel on Istiklal Street, Istanbul at 8pm”. – Alexander Rybak

The event was well attended and judging by the reactions and photos posted on Instagram I think he actually managed to keep that promise.

Alexander Rybak and Johnny Logan – “You Raise Me Up”

Alexander Rybak and Johnny Logan with the legendary song “You Raise Me Up”

The song is composed by Rolf Løvland (Secret Garden). Alexander Rybak and Johnny Logan performed this song at the seasonal final of the Norwegian TV-show at “Allsang på grensen” 09.08.2017

 

YOU RAISE ME UP

( Music: Rolf Løvland. Lyrics: Brendan Graham)

Lyrics as they are sung by Johnny Logan in this performance

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

There is no life ‘ no life without the hunger;
Each beaten heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, it feels I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be.

You raise me up’ To more than I can be.
