Biography:

Agnetha Fltskog produced on April 5, 1950, in Sweden. From time the vocalist was 18, she’d already become a leading artist in her state. Nevertheless, she became an international celebrity after joining musicians Bjrn Ulvaeuwas, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad and forming the group, ABBA. Within the iconic group, Fltskog released the hit singles, “Dancing Queen” and “Mamma Mia,” among others.

Fltskog was the initial daughter of parents Ingvar and Birgit. Supported by her dad, Ingvar, to be involved in theatre and music, Fltskog fell in love with performing and started composing her own tunes on the piano while still quite youthful. At just 13 years old, she formed a musical group known as The Cambers with two of her buddies. The group performed exclusively at small, local events, but still supplied Fltskog with early experience in a profession that will take her to the heights of international acclaim. In 1965, in the age of 15, Fltskog left school to concentrate on music more seriously. As the producer was related to among the group’s members, he listened to the demo completely, and was most impressed with a tune called “Jag var s kr” (“I Was So In Love”).

The tune have been composed and sung by Fltskog, and was about a current breakup she’d gone through. The producer tempted Fltskog to record an album with Cupol; though she had some reservations about leaving Enghardt’s group behind, the charisma was too great. She signed with Cupol, and her first record, Agnetha Fltskog, reached the very top of the Swedish charts in January 1968.  Still several months shy of her 18th birthday, Fltskog had already become well-known in her home country.
