Swedish singer, musical artist and actress
During her career, Emmi Christensson has performed in several classical musicals such as “West Side Story”, “Sound of Music” and “Les Misérables” in both Sweden and Norway. It was in “Les Misérables” where Emmi acted as “Cosette” when Peter Jöback got his eyes on her talent and her potential for the international scene.
Peter Jöback introduced Emmi Christensson to, among others, star music producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh, and it did not take long time before she debuted at West End as “Christine” in “The Phantom of the Opera” at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London in September 2014. In 2015, Emmi participated for the first time in Peter Jöback’s Scandinavian arena tour “I Love Musicals” and in 2016 she again played “Christine”, this time against Peter Jöback in the Swedish production of “The Phantom of the Opera” at Circus in Stockholm.
Besides acting and singing you can also hear her voice as “Belle” in the Swedish version of the Disney classic “Beauty and The Beast” which came out in the spring of 2017. In the summer of 2017 she performed again as guest artist in the world’s largest musical concert “I Love Musicals Allstars” on a sold out Ullevi Arena, together with artist such as Peter Jöback, Helen Sjöholm and Tommy Körberg.
In February 2018, Emmi participated in “Melodifestivalen”, Swedish semi-finals for the Eurovision, with the song “Icarus”, which was specially written for her.
