Norwegian Singer/Songwriter Sigrid Raabe Announced as Third Confirmed Artist for 24th Annual Event
Nobel Peace Prize Concert organizers today announced that breakthrough star Norweigian singer/songwriter Sigrid is confirmed for the 24th annual event in Oslo, Norway on December 11th at Telenor Arena, honoring the Nobel Peace Prize laureate. She joins a star-studded lineup that also includes headliner John Legend and EDM superstar Alan Walker.
“It is a great honor to perform at such an important event for an international audience. I am looking forward to listening and learning, and it will be wonderful to attend the Nobel Peace Prize Concert!” – Sigrid
The hottest song in the world at the moment
When Sigrid released her hit single “Don’t Kill My Vibe” earlier this year, it was quickly labeled “the hottest song in the world at the moment” by many in the music industry. Released in February, the song collected over 1 million streams on Spotify within the first three days, making it one of the fastest rising debuts of any Norwegian artist ever. It also made its mark on the charts in Norway, Australia, Scotland and Great Britain. Legendary artist Sir Elton John took notice, stating to Amazon Music: “Sigrid is a new Scandinavian pop artist that will climb the charts with her new single. With high-voltage vocals and a massive layer on layer production, she will leave a huge mark in the pop music landscape. I absolutely love it.”
Wide and young audience
“Everyone in Norway has taken special national pride in watching Sigrid achieve such international success,” says longtime Nobel Peace Prize Concert Executive Producer Odd Arvid Strømstad. “We are very pleased to have her join the Nobel Concert in her breakthrough year. Sigrid has a wide and young audience that we welcome to join us for the celebration of this year’s laureate – as our guests at the concert, on television or streamed live via YouTube anywhere in the world.”
