    Sissel is a fairly popular artist in Norway, and she is also said to be a Nordic beauty. Personally, I find her a bit too sentimental, but she has a great voice.
    The song performed, "Innerst i sjelen" (Innermost in my soul), is written by the previously crass satirist Ole Paus, lately turned Christian:

    This is a traditional hymn to Western Norway:

    This is her breakthrough performance of Bergen's city anthem as pause entertainment during the Eurovision song contest finals in 1986. She was at this time 16-17 years.

    And here is a performance of "Shenandoah", quite good I think:
