Agnetha Fältskog was born on the 5th April 1950. She was born in Jönköping, Småland in Sweden. She has a younger sister, Mum and Dad. Their names are Mona Fälskog Ericsson, Ingvar Fälskog and Birgit Fälskog. She has a husband, and two children called Linda Elin Ulveas and Peter Christian Ulveas. Agnetha separated in January 1979.

During her childhood, once her pants fell down! But this did not discourage her. She took piano lessons, too. When she was 13, Agnetha and her 2 friends Lena Johansson and Elisabeth Shrub began a band called “The Cambers”. She also performed at a church.

When in ABBA, she won the “Eurovision Song Contest” with her band's song (she performed with ABBA) Waterloo. It was a great hit all around the world. Before that Agnetha and her band came third in the Eurovision Song Contest with their first song, Ring-Ring. She has sung solos in many songs such as Gimme Gimme Gimme, Happy New Year, Dance, Head over Heels, I’ve Been Waiting for you, Kisses of Fire, Lay all your Love on me, My Love My Life, S.O.S., Thank You for the Music, etc.

Agnetha Fältskog is my hero because she has an amazing voice, she has written fantastic songs and that she is Swedish (like me). To be more like her I will try to sing like her by singing along to her songs and wear shiny clothes like her when I get older.
