To perform at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, is an unobtainable dream for many artists. In SVT’s new music series, A Night in New York, some of Sweden’s biggest artists get the chance to sing in front of a big crowd in this famous concert hall.
Every artist chooses a song that lies close to their heart, and together with a fantastic gospel choir they rehearse and work hard to find the right feeling and sound.
Cause when it’s showtime they better be prepared – you only get one shot to please the crowd at the Apollo.
The artists featured are: Zara Larsson, Titiyo, Darin, Roger Pontare, Niklas Strömstedt, Sabina Ddumba, Andreas Johnson, Charlotte Perrelli, Molly Sandén, Oscar Zia, Sarah Dawn Finer, Linda Pira and Andreas Lundstedt.
Backing up the artists is ”The Late Show Gospel Choir”, known from David Letterman’s talkshow. The choir is directed by the charismatic Lady Peachena.
