Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir, for me she is the by far best femal singer of Iceland! She is a big star on the fascinating island in the North Atlantic. But I thing the ravishingly beautiful icelandic singer deserves such an attention and appreciation of her work also in the rest of Europe, if not worldwide... First time she came into the international limelight under her stage name Yohanna in 2009 at the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow. Yohanna confidently won with her heavenly ballad "Is It True?" the first semi-final and achieved an excellent 2nd place in the Grand Finale with 218 points, and thus the best result ever Iceland achieved at the ESC. It's noteworthy that even today, more than a decade after Moscow, Yohanna enjoys such a great popularity in the worldwide ESC fan base and that for many of them "Is It True?" is still unforgotten as one of the best ESC songs of all time. But of course Yohanna is much more than "just" the ESC 2009 and "Is It True?". Already the year before the young Icelandic singer had proved her exceptional talent with her debut album "Butterflies and Elvis". Remarkable songs like "I Miss You", "Beautiful Silence", "Lose Myself", "The River Is Dry", to name just a few highlights of this "Masterpiece of Music", are a few of the reasons why Yohanna with her angelic voice arouses the fascination of countless of music connoisseurs around the world. Just plain adorable are her Icelandic songs, e.g. "Þessi Jól", "Annað Lag" or the extremely soulful duet "Eina Sem Ég Vil" with Björgvin Halldórsson, one of the most popular entertainers in Iceland. Also the two particularly notable songs "Vetrarsól" and "Ég Sé þig" and last but not least her wonderful, always sold out solo concerts are further reasons for Jóhanna Guðrún's huge popularity in her native country Iceland. Another and remarkable highlight in Jóhanna Guðrún's career is surely her first star role as Eva Perón in the world famous musical "EVITA" by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Performed for the very first time in Iceland, the premiere took place on November 15, 2019 in the completely sold out Eldborg Hall of the Harpa, followed by 2 further, also sold-out shows on the same weekend. And of course Jóhanna did a very good job! So good that many Icelanders who missed the shows desperately asked to repeat the show. And this wish was fulfilled on February 28, 2020, also to my big pleasure! So I got the priceless chance to enjoy Jóhanna as Eva Perón live in the Eldborg hall! And honestly, I experienced Jóhanna in top form, simply unbeatable! Her version of "Don’t Cry for Me Argentina" is by far the best I've ever heard. This proves once again that the singer Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir has reached at least the same, very high level as world star and "Queen of Pop", Madonna! Well, she is very popular in her homeland, but Jóhanna Guðrún has indisputably all prerequisites for much, much more! Without any doubt Jóhanna deserves the status of a big international star! For me Jóhanna is already the biggest star of all - for me she is without question Iceland‘s Most Beautiful Voice… Therefore, for me as a huge and simply "incurable" fan of Jóhanna Guðrún, it's a matter of the heart to introduce my absolute favorite singer and her indescribably beautiful music to you. Of course, my options are rather limited, but with this website and my YouTube channel I try to achieve my goal of supporting Jóhanna Guðrún on her way at least a little tiny bit. Well, who knows, but if so, I would be really happy...
