As with many talented competitors, Eva appeared on television in 1978 at the age of eighteen. She was noticed by a musician/producer Bruno Glenmark who helped her launch her debut album Finns det nån som bryr sej om in the same year.
Fueled with enthusiasm, Eva placed third in a try out for the Eurovision Song Contest staged in Sweden. She continued to release albums in the 1980s and toured with the Swedish pop duo Roxette.
Eva launched a new album En blekt blond ins hjärta which sold over half a million copies and netted the singer five Grammis awards. (Sweden’s equivalent to America’s Grammys).
A Change of Name in the Name of Love
In 1996 Eva Dahlgren and jewellery designer Efva Attling entered a civil union and Eva changed her surname to Dahlgren-Atting. This came as a surprise and generated headlines in Sweden and other Scandanavian countries. I certainly admire Eva for placing love over her career!
