I was 9 the first time I fell in love with Marie. I remember the exact moment I listened to "Spending my time" and, even withouth speaking English, I knew that was special. I started following Roxette after that song, I wanted to learn English because of that song and because of her voice. 27 years later Marie is still one of the most important people of my life and the reason why I fell in love with music. Now I have a daughter, she is almost 3, and she listens to Roxette often, she loves it as much as me. I don't have words to describe how I feel today or how I will feel for the rest of my life. I was lucky enough to meet Marie in Madrid and I cried so hard that she came to give me a big hug.. I will never forget that moment or her voice.. I will love her forever
Have been a very big fan for so many years,loved their music and everything about the group. You will be forever in the hearts of all your fans world wide, gone but never forgotten 😔❤️💔
Thanks to you,Marie, I have the best childhood.memories, with my dad driving his car, placing the cassette on the car radio so we can both listen to Roxette. He was the one that introduced me to your amazing band. That was back in Lima, Peru, where I'm originally from. Even though our English was basically non existent we still tried to sing the songs, it didn't matter at the end, because we both enjoyed it!
I live in Sydney now, and I was SOOOO LUCKY to see you live a few years ago not only once but twice! I just couldn't get enough of you and decided to go to the 2 shows you were doing in the city, in a way, I knew it was going to be the first and last time I see you.
So thank you...thank you so much for creating beautiful memories, for your voice, for your existence. You will never be forgotten, you will always have a place in the heart of each of us that loved your music. Thank you.
Marie shapes my life. Her passion, her outlook, everything about her, made me want to be the best version of me. Thank you for sharing her with us. She will be missed forever.
Marie por siempre en mi corazón! Fuiste una persona que desde que escuche tu voz tus canciones me enganche! Fuiste mi.m infancia, mi secundario y aun mi vida, siempre estaré escuchándote, siempre en mi, por siempre Reina, descansa en paz!
I am really sad today but i will always remember the times i saw Maria live on stage. She had a fantastic and unique voice (you could always say if it's her voice or not if you heard a song)
And Roxette has meant a lot to me in the last 25 years of my life.
So thanks for the great songs and all the fun i had while listening to them.
My condolences to Maries famliy and her friends who will surely miss her.
As a fan i still have the chance to listen to her voice and i am sure she will not be forgotten anytime soon. She left her imprint on this world and she touched the hearts of millions of people
So Thanks and R:I:P Marie!
Xxx my mum died when I was 13 (1990). I always think of the constant happiness, joy and love Marie has given me ever since, even though we never met in person. I’m sending all my love to you right now, family and friends and fans. Be strong and love love love each other. Remember forever the joy she brought to the world xxx
Marie your voice will never be forgotten.. from the age of 15 I loved Roxette and begged my mum to let me cut my hair just to look like you. I wasn’t allowed ! But I was always known as your biggest fan in my secondary school and knew all the words even the Swedish songs! I will always remember you and never will forget you ! I saw you here with Per in Dublin to perform in the 3 arena and you were spectacular!! I even travelled to Drammen in Norway to see Roxette ! It brings a tear to my eyes that I will never see you perform again but you will always go on in my heart forever. Such an amazing strong powerful voice ,although I never knew you personally your songs have so much meaning in my life and bring back such happy school day memories. Thank you for the music. All the Irish fans are in mourning and will keep you and your family in our prayers
RIP Marie xxx
I will never forget the first time I heard Roxette in 1990. We had just moved to Arkansas. I was 13 and depressed at being torn from friends in Colorado. Over that summer Roxette’s songs and Marie’s voice kept me sane and I have been a die hard fan ever since. I had the pleasure of seeing them in Los Angeles in 2012. It was the experience of a lifetime in the second row center of that concert. Zichronam livracha, May her memory be for blessing.
Marie was a huge inspiration of life to me, when I first heard her voice back in 1989 i Inmeditaley fell in love with her voice, her vibrant personality and talent. Roxette was part of my life during 30 years, the most beautiful years of my happy life. I saw her and the Band twice in Peru, so I consider myself blessed that I could! If I ever could have met her in person I would’ve become speechless and started crying as she gave all of us the biggest lesson in life of being strong, brave and a fighter! We need more people like her in this world. Marie; thank you for your talent, your voice, the music, for inspiring me; but above all for walking everyday with me on this adventure that I call life. Much love to your family and close friends. You will always be in my heart. Rest In Peace. I will always love you ❤️ Dany
Roxette was my official entry into popular music. Music was always playing in my home, but it wasn't until 1989 that, as a 14 year old, that I bought my first CD with my own money. I got to see Roxette perform in Philadelphia on the Joyride tour. For my 16th birthday, my family gave me money so that a friend and I could take a limo to the Tower Theater to see the concert. It was my first big-time concert by myself. I wasn't disappointed. In 2001, I got to meet Per and Marie at the Virgin Megastore in New York City. I had convinced a friend to teach me Swedish. Well, just enough to be able to show off. I'm sure I was terrible, but Marie told me that it was sweet that I'd learned Swedish for her. I got to see Marie and Per perform a third time, in 2012 at the Beacon Theater in New York City. It was even more amazing than I could have hoped for. I am pretty sure I have all of the singles, all of the albums, all of the videos, and all of the unreleased tracks.
My thoughts, prayers, and love to Marie's loved ones and family. I cannot begin to imagine your loss. But in those moments when your heart aches, please know that she has had a profound impact on my life. Her voice brings a smile to my face and, on occasion, a tear to my eye. She was loved. To paraphrase one of my favorite songs: We were so lucky she came by.
First I want to offer my deepest condolences to Marie's family and friends.
Marie thank you for giving us your voice, beauty, passion and soul...you will be forever loved by all ❤ your voice will live on in the beautiful music you made always and forever.
Thank you from my heart I will miss you xx
You're such an inspiring woman. RIP Marie ❤
RIP dear Maria and thank you for the music you gave me. An inspirational woman and remarkable voice. Now you cam sing with angels. xx
Tack för sången, tack för orden, tack för styrkan, tack för att du höll mig uppe, tack för innerligheten, tack för din närvaro, tack för tonerna, tack för alla möten, tack för utbytet från scenen.
A beautiful bright light has gone out in the world of pop music, you will be greatly missed by family, friends and all your fans, your suffering has ended, rest now in peace, knowing you are loved by all!!! 😭😭😭 xx
Du har varit min favorit sedan många, många år. Vi lyssnade på era låtar dygnet runt redan som barn. När ni kom först till Budapest, var jag bara 14 år, och jag köpte en röd ros till dig och en nalle till Per. Hoppas, att ni fått dessa🙂. Vi älskade er så mycket, att vi bestämde oss, att vi skulle gå till fots till Sverige från Ungern bara för att få se er...Då var jag bara ett barn..men idag bor jag i Sverige, och jag kom hit delvis pga Roxette...Idag har jag en underbar svensk man och familj.
Jag tackar dig och till Roxette allt musik och min fantastiska familj..Utan er skulle jag inte vore jag...vore inte här..
Hoppas, att nu sjunger du med änglarna och är lycklig...❤❤❤
May you rest in peace Marie you beautiful lady xxx I have been a massive fan of yourself and your music with alongside per gessle and roxette since 1989 when I first went crazy about 'the look'! I remember I got jealous when school friends of mine in 1990 started loving you and your band when you released "it must have been love" and I was like but I loved you 1st! Me and my dad spent hours one day searching for "it must have been love" when you released it in 1990 but everywhere had sold out and I remember how chuffed I was when in our final shop we tried we managed to get the last copy.
I have bought all of your albums and I am so glad and privileged I got to see you twice in concert. I was overwhelmed on both occasions.fantastic performances! I wish I could have got to meet you in person. Thank you for my favourite music of the last 30 years and I will miss you greatly. Xxx RIP Marie xxxx
Gratitude for your existence!
Rest in peace!
Serenity for your family! 🦋🌻🍃
Gratidão por tua existência!
Descanse em paz!
