RFSL Club Magasinet open with Melanie Wehbeson stage:
Melanie Wehbe (Sweden) is a multiple gold and platinum awarded singer and songwriter. Growing up with music in the family she early understood the impact and importance of having music in life. At the age of 14 she started writing songs which quickly became the easiest way for her to express herself. Last year, 2022, Melanie released her debut EP ’Bloom’ including six brand new personal gems. She explains the EP as a musical journey about finding self-acceptance, finding one’s inner strength and to bloom as a person.
After several years as a songwriter and backing vocalist in Melodifestivalen (The Swedish entry to Eurovision Song Contest) she finally entered the stage herself as an artist this year with her song ”For The Show”. ”Daring to be yourself and to grow as a person has founded my entire artistry and that’s exactly why this song feels like a perfect debut for me in the contest and sequel to ’Bloom’. We’ve seen her as a cover girl on Sweden’s biggest LGBTQ+ Magazine, QX Magazine and after a live show in Luleå, Sweden, a reviewer called her “one of the country’s best kept secret and best talent”.
Melanie Wehbe’s catalogue as a songwriter includes two songs to hit no.1 on Spotify and three songs to hit no.1 on radio. She has written two entries for Eurovision Song Contest – ‘Move’ by The Mamas and ‘Love Is Forever’ by Leonora. Along with two Swedish Idol winner songs which one of them was the first winner single from the show to hit no.1.
