Alexander Rybak performed at the memorial concert for the people in Gjerdrum municipality in Norway.

“💔
On the night of December 30, people in Gjerdrum lost their loved ones and their homes. I have made a song about this countryside which I love so much, and I will sing it tonight amongst other songs.
We don’t pretend that playing some music will make everything fine again, but it moves me to see what the people in the community are doing for each other in these dark times.💪🏼💕🙏🏼”
