BIOGRAPHY

Agnetha Faltskog was bornon 5 April 1950 in Jönköping, Sweden, Swedish, is Swedish musician. Although she has made a name for herself as a solo artist in Sweden, Agnetha Fältskog will always be best known as a member of ‘ABBA’, one of the most commercially successful and internationally adored pop bands of all time. Leaving school at 15 to pursue a career in music, she soon found herself singing with Bernt Enghardt's band and attracted a fan following. Through Enghardt, she secured a record deal and soon topped the charts in Sweden with her first release. She became engaged and later got married to Björn Ulvaeus and became a member of ‘ABBA’. For the next eight years, ‘ABBA’ would be one of the most successful pop acts in the world, earning numerous gold and platinum awards all across the globe. Post-ABBA, she released three albums –‘Wrap Your Arms Around Me’, ‘Eyes of a Woman’ and ‘I Stand Alone’, all of which garnered great success in Sweden and gained popularity throughout Europe as well but never quite made a mark in the U.S. As the '80s wound to a close, she went into an unofficial retirement. ABBA's music was the subject of a jukebox musical called ‘Mamma Mia!’. She came out of retirement to record ‘My Coloring Book’ that peaked at 11 on the U.K. charts. Her latest Album, ‘A’, has also been well-received.
