HOW IT STARTED
In 1993 Pandora hade a huge break through, in Sweden as well as the rest of the world, with her first single, ”Trust Me”, which became a monsterhit and ended up being the most sold single in Sweden that year. This was the kickstart of an international career and she started adding one hit single to another. Radio, dance and top selling charts were all invaded by songs like “One of us”, “Tell the world”, “Don’t you know”, “A little bit”, “Come on and do it”, “Don’t worry”, “Smile n’ shine”, “This could be heaven” and the official German song for the winter olympics in Nagano 1998, “Let your spirit fly”, and last the Russian song ”Why-Magistral” where she sings partly in Russian just to mention a few of the hits from her voluminous song catalogue.
A PIONEER OF HER GENRE
Up until today Pandora has released 12 albums, 25 hit singles, selling more than 6 million records, recieving 19 gold and platinum awards, recording 13 music videos and performed more than 1000 times all over the world. This makes Pandora a “pioneer of her genre” and one of Sweden’s most successful and famous artists, in her own country as well as abroad. Pandora was eurodance already before the genre got its name.
