Selina (10) and Anea Bråten (8) did not want to go to the Christmas concert. But that was before they heard that Alexander Rybak was coming.
-It was kind of strange to see him in person, since I have only ever seen him on TV, says Selina, who together with her sister was very pleased when, after the Christmas concert ‘Silent Night Holy Night’ in Tune church, had their picture with Rybak.
-He is very clever, and the concert was good. I have liked him for a long time. I didn’t want to go to the Christmas concert actually, but then Mom told me that Rybak was coming, Selina smiles.
In spite of the happiness she thought it was a little embarrassing to meet the star violinist.
-But it wasn’t scary. He was very kind, the 10 year old says.
