Profile Bio Text
Agnetha Ase Fältskog was born in the southern Swedish town of Jönköping. Not even her parents, Ingvar and Birgit, could have predicted the fame their daughter would eventually achieve. Agnetha`s father opened a door that would eventually lead to stardom. Ingvar Fältskog loved the local amateur dramatic society and often put together shows for the local community. In 1956, he organized a Christmas show that was Agnetha`s stage debut.
Agnetha signed with the CBS-Cupol label and her record topped the Swedish charts on Sunday, January 28th, 1968. Her first album released by Cupol was called Agnetha Fältskog.
The year 1969 brought an album titled, Agnetha Fältskog Vol. 2. It was a major success and Agnetha had a place in history as one of Sweden`s leading female vocalists. But something even greater than all of this was about to happen in the summer of 1969... she met Björn Ulvaeus, the man of her dreams, and the beginning of a musical collaboration between four wonderfully talented people. The groundwork for ABBA was being laid.
On July 6th, 1971, Agnetha Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus were married in the village of Verum in southern Sweden.
The couple decided to separate in late 1978, and Fältskog moved out of their home on Christmas night, 25 December 1978. In January 1979, the couple filed for divorce, which was finalised in June 1980. Both Fältskog and Ulvaeus agreed not to let their failed marriage interfere with their responsibilities with ABBA.
