Madonna and Michael (plus Trine and Rikke) on stage

Tonight Madonna is on stage here in Oslo. With her "Sticky & Sweet" tour she is performing for the first time in Oslo, and will through two shows entertain ab 80.000 fans. Welcome to Oslo.

On July 15. 1992 (17 years ago) Michael Jackson visited Oslo with his Dangerous World tour. On the photo (rightmost) you can see my eldest (then 13) daughter Trine dressed as a boy scout together with other children from Uranienborg School Choir.To the left, dressed as a Mexican girl, my youngest daughter Rikke (then 9) also participated in singing the Heal the World.

The children´s"performing art career" started five years earlier when the choir (Trine) participated in Sissel Kyrkjebø´s Christmas Album "Glade Jul". After that the children choir developed great under their conductor Charlotte Fongen and was invited to take part in a Randy Crawford and Lava concert. The impresario became so impressed by the voices so he invited them to participate in the Dangerous tour.

Later Trine also was on stage in Singapore with Paul Anka and singing friends from UWCSEA.
She played the melancholy Jaques in Shakespeare´s "As you like it" and performed the famous monologue All the world is a Stage while Rikke took part in UWCSEA´s production of the German dramatist Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill´s musical The Threepenny Opera.

Today the young girls have developed into grownup mothers with academic educations. We are proud of you kids.
Vsit Show your World

En opplevelse for jentene, øyeblikk de vil huske for alltid kan du skjønne. Jeg sa det faktisk i går at jeg nå angrer som en hund at vi ikke skaffet oss biletter til Madonna, Har ikke cdèr av dama, men hun kjører nå et enormt seneshow da!!!

These are truly special memories,
and it is so good to hear that your daughters have grown into the kind of adults all us parents wish for. Children are such a gift, aren't they?
