Eva Dahlgren in March 2016
|Born||9 June 1960|
Dahlgren was discovered by musician/producer Bruno Glenmark in 1978 after appearing on the TV show Sveriges magasin and her debut album Finns det nån som bryr sej om was released the same year. In 1979 she placed third in Melodifestivalen (the tryout competition for the Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden). She toured Sweden in 1987 with Swedish pop duo Roxette, a tour that was attended for more than 100,000 people. Dahlgren's career grew steadily with several album releases during the 1980s but her definite breakthrough in Sweden came in 1991 with the hit album En blekt blondins hjärta which sold over half a million copies and netted the singer five Grammis awards.
In 1996 Dahlgren made headlines in the Swedish press when she came out as a lesbian through her civil union with jewellery designer Efva Attling. In connection with the civil union, Dahlgren changed her surname to Dahlgren-Attling. In 2009 they got married, after Sweden passed its gender neutral marriage law.
