Famous artists paid tribute to women with breast cancer
More than 400 people took the trip to Bærum Culturehouse Thursday evening to see Tooji, Lise Karlsnes and Alexander Rybak play in honor of women with breast-cancer.
The three artists told that it felt special to get to play at the Pink Ribbon concert this evening.
-“This is a very close subject for me, since my aunt died of breast cancer. Events like this shows that things are in progress”, Tooji said before he started his show. The MGP-star played 3 new songs and the youngest girls in the hall screamed with a full heart.
Alexander Rybak also emphasized that this is an important issue for him. – “I have friends, who have survived cancer. We have to continue fighting against cancer and fighting for pink ribbons”.
He had brought 28 string-players from Bærum Young Strings with him.
The income from the concert will go directly to the organization for women who had breast cancer surgery.
