Anti-racisim gala at Globen included Marie on piano

Wearing sparkling green pants and a denim jacket, Marie sang "För dom som älskar" ("For Those Who Love") last night at the Anti-Racism concert at Globen in Stockholm. Sitting alone – under a solitary spotlight – at a grand piano that had been brought on stage, Marie's voice was strong, clear, and full of emotion. Before the last notes of the song could fade away, the performance was met with generous applause.

  Even Aftonbladet's music critic Per Bjurman, who admits that he seldom has very much nice to say about Marie, wrote in his column today that her performance was "especially fine and extremely emotional."

  Several fans who subscribe to RML reported that they were able to hear Marie's performance live over the internet. Sveriges Radio (P3) both broadcast and Webcast the gala. A fan in Spain recorded the Webcast (see first comment for the link) and a CD of the gala, including Marie's song, is being rushed into production.
