I am talking about Christian from the famous band A1 and his father who came to the activity center where I work to entertain the elderly. Here they are. For those that didn't know. They are Norwegians.
Actually, it was the father who was going to hold the concert. But Christian came too to help his father with the sound system. What a nice gesture from a famous son.
Stein Ingebrigtsen (born August 23, 1945 in Namsos) is a Norwegian singer, guitarist and songwriter. Stein Ingebrigtsen has had success in six languages: Norwegian, Swedish, German, English, Italian and Spanish. He has recordings in Norway, Sweden, USA, Japan and Germany (stage name Stein Refugees, on the record label Telefunken). He was nominated for a Grammy Award for three consecutive years in 1973-1975. ( From wikipedia)
He said that he is now a pensioner, but still like to sing once in a while. And that made us all happy.
And of course I wouldn't missed the chance to have a souvenier with them. It is once in a lifetime opportunity.
Well, I am really a lucky woman:)
Christian asked me which country I came from. When I told him from the Philippines, he said that he knows the country. They had a concert in Araneta Colosseum for not so long ago.
Anyway, they came one and half hour earlier before the concert and since we were going to play bingo with the elderly that time, I asked if they want to join us. And guess what? They were willing to join:)
And so the first winner was Christian. I did not do it in purpose:) He was just lucky. And the prize was chocolate. He was happy about it. He said so.
And after the concert, he said that it was nice meeting me because I am a woman full of joy and energy that I spread those traits to the people around me. That was the nicest word I heard for me from a famous person. I thank him so much and I said that I will keep his words in my heart. I also thank him for his kindness to give his time for the elderly.
And he sung songs for us both in Norwegian and English which he composed himself. Although he has been away from the counry in many years, he didn't change. A humble and a kind person who really sees one in the eyes when he talks to one and really listens. This guy really touched my heart.
Then I got an autograph too from him and his father.
This from Christian. He wrote it in Norwegian. It means " To Ligaya! A big hug from Christian
( His signature)
and from his father.
And saying goodbye with these flowers that I used to decorate the tables for the occasion:)
