Photo: A little embarrassing: For Selina (10) and Anea Bråten(8) it was a little embarrassing, but very fun to have their picture taken with their hero Alexander Rybak. They had a good evening at the concert and would like to go to another.
Had picture taken with their idol
Pleased Sarpsborg girls got to meet Alexander Rybak after the Christmas concert.
Selina (10) and Anea Bråten (8) did not want to go to the Christmas concert. Until they heard that Alexander Rybak would come.
-”It was kind of strange to see him for real, since I have only seen him on tv”, says Selina – whom, together with her sister was very pleased, when they after the Christmas concert ‘Silent Night, Holy Night’ in Tune church got their picture with Rybak.
-”He is very clever, and the concert was good. I have liked him for a long time. I didn’t want to go to the Christmas concert, actually – until Mom told me that Rybak was coming”, Selina smiles.
In spite of the happiness, she thought it a little embarrassing to meet the star violinist.
-”But it wasn’t scary – he is very kind”, the 10-years old said.
