Anna Henrietta Bergendahl (born 11 December 1991) is a Swedish singer. She was born in Hägersten, Stockholm and raised in Nyköping and Katrineholm. Bergendahl is of partial Irish descent as her grandmother was born and lives in Ireland, and Anna’s first performance in front of an audience was made in a cathedral in York when she was only eight years old.
She took part in Swedish TV4 music program Super Troupers in 2004, and in Idol 2008 where she reached the Final 5 before being eliminated. In 2009, Bergendahl signed for Lionheart Records. Her debut album was released on 14 April 2010.
Bergendahl won Melodifestivalen 2010 with the song “This Is My Life” and represented Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Norway, where she became the first Swedish entrant in the Contest’s history to fail to qualify for the final. The song hit #1 on the Swedish Singles Chart on 5 March 2010.
