You were strongYou loved the music and made every day to your best day!
Thanks that you me support in my teenager life with your songs! I bought your book and it feels you will sit next to me and tell me your story about life!!! One sign you gave me enjoying the time with my son and Enjoy every day. We see you one day and let s do music together! Piece Teo (5) and Judith (36) Listen to your Heart
Such a sad day Dec 9th. What a shock for all Roxette fans with such a talented singer taken from us. As a life long Roxette fan who I believe were so underrated in the music world I think there song Listen to your Heart reflects how Maria fans are feeling right now. God bless her soul as she is and will be truly missed
When I watched Roxette videos on MTV in the early 90s and later saw them live on stage Marie always seemed so strong and powerful. She seemed nothing could ever harm her. I was shocked when she got ill in 2002 and now I'm shocked again. Thank you so much for your incredible voice and your outstanding personality! You will be in my heart forever, Marie!
Dear Josefin, dear Oscar, der Mikeal,
in october 2019 my mom died of cancer. The world has changed for me since then...
On december the 11th I was driving home from work, smiling because I heard a song from Roxette on the radio. It felt a bit like beeing at home for the first time after my mom died - I felt some kind of safe and secure by listening to Maries voice. This was because the music from Roxette accompanies my life since I was twelve years old (now I am thirty-seven) and I was so happy that there is still at least one thing that has not changed for me. After the song the moderator said that Marie has died the day before. This was for me like the world fell totally apart.
I feel with you! Marie - you will always be in my heart!
Obrigado, Marie! Obrigado, Roxette!
O trabalho de vocês está eternizado, a música de vocês com certeza está eternizada nos corações de milhões de fãs espalhados pelo mundo inteiro.
Descanse em paz e obrigado por tantos sentimentos.
Du warst ein wundervoller Mensch voller Energie und Freude.Du hattest so eine großartige Stimme.Ich glaube im Himmel wirst Du weiter so singen.Denn da gibt es keinen Schmerz und keine Leiden mehr!Ich danke Dir für deine Musik und deine offenen Worte die Du in Deiner Biografie gefunden hast!Gott segne Dich und behüte Dich und Deine Familie hier! DANKE
When Roxette hit the international music scene in the late 80s I became an instant fan. The music was happy, fun. Seemed to be Per Gessle's trademark. The voice of Marie Fredriksson... irresistable. Over the years Roxette joined the very small ranks of my all-time favourite music artists. Marie's voice became the one female voice I could listen to day and night and never tire of it. No matter how the slow the ballad, every song sounded like a bright summer day because of her voice. To this day she is still my favourite female singing voice and I listen to Roxette songs every week without fail. My favourite? "Things Will Never Be The Same". And they never will. It saddens me to know I will never again hear new music with that incredible voice. But it makes me happy that I have a catalogue of songs I can listen to endlessly. And Per Gessle? Don't stop.
Hur ska jag någonsin lysa som du
I de mildaste färger, i det starkaste ljus
Brinner du för evigt, för evigt.
Tusen och åter tusen tack för allt Marie, jag kommer aldrig att glömma dig.
Det är så ofattbart sorgligt och overkligt att våran älskade Marie har lämnat oss. Du är en sån fantastiskt förebild och modersgestalt, som har funnits hela mitt liv som en moderilg trygghet. Du har lämnat den fysiska världen, men du finns bland oss, fast i en annan värld. Din röst och närvaro kommer evigt bli ihågkomet. Mina kondolenser och varma tankar går till Maries familj, Per med vänner och kollegor. Mina tankar går även till alla Maries alla fans över hela världen. Ett varmt ödmjukt Tack! för allt du get mig och att dina musik och liveframträdanden. Tack! Marie för att du alltid funnits där i alla väder och vind. Vila i frid Marie i din sång himmel med hälsningar från Mikael.
thank you so much for fighting back after your diagnose of 2002. Because of this, I could see you in Munich in Juli 2015 in one of your last show. Your music belongs to my life. In the GDR we were allowed to hear these fantastic english songs. As I can remember myself the first „ear worm“ was „Listen to my heart“. This title got part of my life. I‘m listening to my heart. Thank you so much for everything, for being on earth, for wonderful music, for fantastic show, for you voice.

it took me a little to get over the news and right now I feel like I can leave a note to honor you and your life that brought so much joy to so many people.
I grew up in east Germany and got my first Roxette album when I was 6 years old. By this time my life was so fucked up. My mum was drinking, my dad was a loser and I was the one to clean up their mess every day. I´m still not sure if you found me or if I found you but somehow it happened and we got together. Your songs, your voice and my messed up life. I was working 6 weeks to afford the album and when I finally went to the record store 60 cent were missing. I worked to whole summer for this. I looked at the guy in the store and started crying and he fell guilty I guess. I got a discount. LOL. I was happy for the first time in my whole life. I bought Joyride and I was listening to it for hours every day. It kept me alive. The next thing I did was writing songs. I found an old guitar and learned how to play and wrote songs. My big dream was to sing with you one day. This kept my alive over years. There was so much love in your voice. So much compassion. I knew one day I´ll travel to Sweden and we gonna meet and make music. A cute dream of a broken child.
Life went on, time passed and things happened. When I heard of your death everything came up again and I felt a deep sorrow I can´t explain. So you helped me a second time. Thank you so much for being true and for being such a great and strong and unbelievable amazing person. We never met but you changed so much for me and you saved me in a way nobody else could. You´re so deep in my heart and in my soul. Thank you. I wish I had met you.
Also I want to send all my prayers to your family and friends . I know they miss you so bad but they are the luckiest people on earth because they were able to share their lifes with you.
Rest and be free and shine. I love you. Thank you!
Ms. Marie & Mr. Per, the first time that I heard your music was June 1998 (I was 4 years of age that time), and exactly the song was June Afternoon (from Now 2 compilation released in SEA) . I'm so really amazed with the girl's voice. The cassette tape were broke because everytime the song ends, I'm rewinding it to the start of the music. At 2003, my uncle brought a CD with your released album, Don't bore us - get and to the chorus! I always wanted to hear your songs after school hours. And I always singing Listen to your heart, Fading like a flower and etc. to karaoke. My friends called me weird because the songs I chose was older than me, but I never think about it, your songs were great. When I'm reviewing for boardexam and now I got stress on work, my stress reliever was your songs. Thank you for sharing to voice to the world, Marie; and your masterpiece Per Gessle. Love from 🇵🇭. Mahal kayo ng Pilipinas. ❤️
Dear Ms. Marie,
I was only 8 when I discovered Roxette, that was 2013 (yes, im young). I attended my neighbor's birthday party, and they were playing the song "Dangerous", and it caught my ear, It's so beautiful. I didn't have access to any computer or internet that time, i wasn't able to search for it, but the song still plays in my head after days of hearing it, until I just forgot about it. Last year, January 2019, the memory of the song just came back, so I decided to search for it. And then I found your band. It's actually funny because I thought Roxette is an artist and 'Dangerous' was sang by only one person, I really think that Per and your voice was kinda similar on that song. When I heard that song again for the first time after 6 years, I can't stop listening to it, at school, at the bus, while studying, before I sleep, I listen to it. Then I searched more about Roxette, and I found out that you guys also sang Listen to Your Heart, It Must've Been Love and Vulnerable. I really can't stop listening to Roxette and I love your style, I even cut my long hair just to look like you. I also learned Swedish just for you guys. I dug youtube for performances and interviews from 1980's. Your songs are my "review music" I listen to it while studying because it relaxes me. Thank you for being a great part of my life, dear Marie. Even if I've only been a fan for almost one year, I'm still thankful that I discovered you. I'm still have thankful for your music that brought me joy and happiness. You are always in my heart.
Thank you Marie you gave the world the magic of your vocals through songs. And really I will not be able to listen to your extraordinary voice as then in 90 ,the boy after school lessons. Thank you, you and Per brought up all the good in me and were there when it was lonely and not clear to live. Taught me and millions to love. Thanks. I could not have thought then that that hard-bartered cassette from Zenkina Natalia would change my idea of music and bring up my musical taste. Only your music warmed my fragile adolescent heart and gave me the happiness of the past day. Thank you Marie you gave the World and us fans all the talent and all your desire to sing, to give for us in songs. Thank You Marie. I will not forget you you are always in my heart. May the earth be down to you. We mourn and offer our condolences to Fredriksson's family and friends. We listened To our hearts with you. With your beautiful voice. Thank you and Fly to infinity. You are in our hearts
Спасибо Мари ты подарила миру волшебство твоего вокала через песни. И действительно я уже не смогу слушать твой необыкновенный голос как тогда в 90е ,мальчишкой после школьных уроков. Спасибо тебе,вы с Пером воспитали во мне всё хорошее и были рядом когда было одиноко и не понятно жить. Научили меня и миллионы любить. Спасибо. Я и подумать не мог тогда что та с трудом вымененая кассета у Зенкиной Натальи перевернёт моё представление о музыке и воспитает мой музыкальный вкус. Только ваша музыка согревала моё неокрепшее подросковое сердце и дарило счастье прошедшего дня. Спасибо Мари ты отдала Миру и нам фанатам весь талант и всё своё желание петь,отдавать для нас в песнях. Спасибо Мари. Я не забуду тебя ты всегда в моём сердце. Пусть земля тебе будет пухом. Скорбим и приносим свои соболезнования семье Фредрикссон и друзьям. Мы Прислушались к своим сердцам с тобой. С твоим прекрасным голосом. Спасибо и Лети в бесконечность. Ты в наших сердцах
It’s hard to put into words when someone you never knew touched your heart through their music. I hope one day I meet her in the afterlife and thank her for the joy she brought not only to myself but to so many. Your music will live on through the ages. Rest In Peace spread your wings and fly.
Sei stata un'artista eccezionale, una delle piu' brave di sempre, che ha accompagnato la mia gioventu' , facendomi sognare con la tua voce e le tue magistrali interpretazioni, soprattutto sulle note di listen to your Heart, dove sei giovanissima e bellissima. La tua voce straordinaria ti renderanno immortale nel cuore di noi fan e di tutti coloro che amano la musica.
Sono sicuro che gl angeli ti avranno accolto in cielo con una standing ovation....
1 grande abbraccio alla tua famiglia
Today we lost a great singer and artist. She was alltime on my side, my heart, my mind.
It's a weird feeling to see one of your music idols pass away. Especcially if you have been listening to their music since your early years. With the powerfull, emotional and clear voice of Marie you instandly knew when Roxette was on the radio. Listening to Roxette now will never be the same. But I will alwas remember how you made the sountrack to certain situations in my life.
My condolences to family and friends.
