Kronprinsparets Fond Releases Christmas Album
The Kronprinsparets Fond (Crown Prince Couple’s Fund), in cooperation with Universal Music, will release a Christmas album titled “Vi tenner våre lykter” (We light our lamps) on November 14, 2011, to raise money for disadvantaged young people.
It contains traditional carols, as well as newly written songs, which will be performed by young Norwegian artists. Those are Ida Jenshus, Gunhild Sundli, Thomas Dybdahl, Moddi, Samsaya, Marit Larsen & Garness, Ingrid Olava, Katzenjammer, Stein Torleif Bjella and Vinni.
A part of the profit will go directly back to the fund.
Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit intend to encourage young people in the challenging phase of life between youth and adulthood, which is also the main focus of the Crown Prince Couple’s Fund. Therefore they wished younger Norwegian artists to perform on the CD to deliver the message of the fund’s work.
“Working with the youth is both one of the most important and joyous of the things we do. Many young people have resources that are not captured, and for some of them it can be a big challenge. Through the fund, we want to ensure that young people are seen – so they can use their opportunities and make a contribution to the community. Then we are better equipped to create the Norway we want for the future.” – Crown Prince Couple.
