HAPPY CHRISTMAS ! ! !

This is a simple Christmas card from me to you. First, let me thank you, my fans & listeners, for the love and support!

My Christmas song entered the J-WAVE Tokio Hot 100 chart yesterday as #100! Big thanks to ALL of you in Japan who voted for the song to enter!

This is my 4th time on the chart (as far as I know), all 4 songs have been during 2011 and 2012.

Inspired by the radio airplay, I decided to check how many of my songs that have been played in radio or TV since I released "Passion" in 2004.

The result was VERY surprising. I knew that radio stations in lots of different countries have been playing my songs, but I didn't know it was so many of the songs. I have released 4 albums and 5 singles until now. It's totally 48 original songs.

The amount of songs played in radio or TV is:

85 %

! ! !

That's a pretty amazing result, remembering that they're all indie releases, but the music seems to find its own way out into the world and I feel really blessed and thankful for that!

The song most played is still "Passion" (in different versions):




One of my own favorite songs is "After the Rain" (2011):

I'll end with one of my newly re-discovered favorites, "The Rainbow Connection" by genius singer/songwriter Paul Williams together with Kenneth Ascher.

This is Sarah McLachlan's beautiful version:




Here's the original from The Muppet Movie (1979):




Have a beautiful and peaceful Christmas, and see you around. On one or the other side of the rainbow.
