Neon Nights Show #067 “Whigfield aka Sannie Interview”

“I wanna take you to paradise…”

Whigfield chats with John von Ahlen this Saturday on
Neon Nights Show #67 on JOY 949.
Denmark’s Sannie Carlson (once known as Whigfield) made a mark in the history of pop-dance music by selling millions of records worldwide. In 1994 she gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records with the song “Saturday Night” as the
first artist to go straight to number one in the UK singles chart with a debut single. Her discography is extremely impressive including numerous hit singles all over the world & four studio albums, a career spanning over a decade which for a pop-dance act is extremely unusual.
After many years on stage Sannie decided to concentrate on the other side of the music industry, writing & composing for other artists in the business, both DJs & singers with names such as the Grammy winner Benny Benassi, Adam K, Ann
Lee and In-Grid. But day by day, the urge to get back out there as an artist returned, and SANNIE is launching a new career with the brilliant single ‘In The Morning’ – In The Morning debuted in the UK Cool Cuts Chart at #13 – now at #4!As Whigfield in the 90s she had major success with Saturday Night, Sexy Eyes and Gimme Gimme (and many more in Europe). She’s currently on tour with the Vengaboys!
