Olle Hedberg is..."Wonderful"!
Last autumn, regular readers of this blog will remember that Olle Hedberg was my favourite contestant on Swedish Idol. Now he's released his debut single, "Wonderful", which is a cover version of a song released a couple of years ago by British singer-songwriter Gary Go, which got a lot of radio airplay over here two years ago. The song has been used in various movie soundtracks and most recently it was played during the interval of this year's Eurovision Song Contest final (when the televoting phone numbers were displayed on screen). So there's still a lot of life left in the song, and who better than Olle to keep it going?
"Wonderful" was released yesterday and is already no.15 in the iTunes Sweden singles chart.
Check out Olle's official site http://www.ollehedberg.com/ and Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Olle-Hedberg/119189471447567 and of course don't forget to check out his various great cover versions over at YouTube.
