Alexander Rybak – “Christmas Tales”

From Fairytale to Christmas music

Most of us know Alexander Rybak best as the boy, who brought home the gold in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Annsofi praised by Rybak

The singer from Sarpsborg on the new Christmas CD 

Annsofie Pettersen and Alexander Rybak have definitely found the tone. On Rybak’s new Christmas album they sing in the Christmas spirit together. – It is very gratifying to work with Annsofie. She is energetic and always well prepared, something that makes the rest of us feel safer. Thus, we can enjoy ourselves more spontaneously when we sing,- Alexander Rybak says to SA.
