My career started when I was 8 years old, and when I was 10 years I played “Annie” in the musical by the same name. Then I got signed by Sony Music in Norway, and released my first album.

You are one of the participants of MGP 2015, how did it all begin?
I competed in a television show called “Stjernekamp” where I ended up on a 4th place. I believe what I showcased on this show was what led MGP to get in touch.

It was amazing to work with them, and I learned a lot from them during the process.
Describe the song with 4 words:
Powerful, playful, happy song, strong.

Dancing: happiness
Pizza: Not my favorite.
