Biography

Malin's career as a singer started when she was nine years old. She auditioned for the Norwegian selection for JESC 2005, the Melodi Grand Prix Junior 2005, and she was selected to sing among ten contestants in the final show. Her song was too short though, so she had to write one more verse for it on the way home from the audition. After surprising herself by winning MGP jr by a landslide, she went on a summer concert tour, singing on festivals and television shows. In November she performed in the JESC 2005 in Hasselt, Belgium and finished 3rd, the best position for Norway so far.

The next year Malin signed a record deal and in 2006 she released two albums. Malin på månen was released in May. It's a children's album that includes Sommer og skolefri and she participated in writing most of the original songs on it. Malin's jul is a Christmas album with familiar Christmas songs. Third album Pang was released in April 2008, and it was certified gold in few weeks.

Malin lives on a horse farm with her parents and little sister. Her favourite subject in school is mathematics and her hobbies include horseback riding, singing, reading and skiing.
