Additional information

Agnetha appeared with Ola Håkansson and sang Fly Like The Eagle and The Way You Are during Flyktinggalan (Gala for Refugees), a charity event where viewers were asked to call a phone number and donate money.

At the end line-up, Agnetha can be seen with the rest of the cast standing and singing next to Peter Cetera.  The tune is that of Auld Lang Syne.

The two presenters were Håkan Hagegård and Kjell Lönnå.  Other guests included Carola, Howard Jones and:-

  1. Emilio Ingrosso and Pernilla WahlgrenParadise
  2. Lena PhilipssonCheerio

It was at this show that Agnetha met Peter Cetera as he was on the same show singing Glory Of Love. As they were fans of each other, Agnetha and a few of her friends went out to dinner with Peter and that's when they began talking about possibly working together in the future.  Of course this resulted in Agnetha's I Stand Alone album, released in 1987.
