Biography

Sweden (1984 – present)

Lena Philipsson (born Maria Magdalena Filipsson on January 19, 1966, in Vetlanda) is a Swedish singer and media personality. Her career started with the single Boy/You Open My Eyes in 1984 and with her Melodifestivalen entries Kärleken är evig in 1986, Dansa i neon in 1987, and Om Igen in 1988. In the early 1990s her fame increased in Sweden, and she continued to release albums until 1997. In 2001, she had a stage comeback with the successful “Lena Philipsson Show,” which was sold out for two and a half years around Sweden. In 2004, she entered Melodifestivalen for the fourth time as a solo artist, with the song Det Gör Ont composed by Thomas Eriksson (Orup). She won Melodifestivalen and represented Sweden at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul with an English version of the song, It Hurts. Despite being the third favourite to win the competition, she finished in sixth place. Her album Det Gör Ont En Stund På Natten Men Inget På Dan sold gold in nine days, with Det Gör Ont as its lead single. It also spawned the singles Delirium, Lena Anthem, and På Gatan Där Jag Bor. She released the album Jag ångrar Ingenting in 2005 and hosted Melodifestivalen in 2006. Her greatest hits album Lena 20 År was released in 2007.
