Sissel

Born in Bergen, Norway in 1969, Sissel had appeared on Norwegian television several times as a child, but came into the public eye with her stellar vocal performances at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer. She sings in her native tongue, in addition to English and Latin, similar in style and substance as the Irish ethereal vocalist Enya. Two albums in the mid-'90s, Innerst I Sjelen and Deep Within My Soul, found a small but dedicated audience and led to a prominent place as the voice of James Horner's maritime muse in the smash 1997 film Titanic. 1997 also brought about a project with rapper Warren G on an unusual compilation of hip hop and classical recordings on Mercury/Def Jam, which became a hit in Europe. Recording under her full name, Sissel Kyrkjebø, she recorded Gift of Love for Polygram in 1999. ~ Michael Ofjord and Zac Johnson, Rovi

Pure extacy
Sissal, you sing so beautifully, but where is your decent high neckline and modest clothes? Without the sensuality, more decent people would play your tunes. Into Paradise is a wonderful song, thank you, from New Zealand. Hayley Westernra became very successful with her album Pure. Enigma found success with their first hit, these two because people WANT something nice, pure, and innocent. I wish you well, and hope in future, you sing so well again.
Her voice is so beautiful and inspiring
Nice

Very Nice voice! She reminds me of Katherine Jenkins. Both have glorious voices
Sissel did the accompanimen t to Celine Dion's theme from the Titanic; My Heart Will Go On. Very similar to what she does in this song.

What a new surprise, so beautiful.
Lovely.
I have Sissel's CD's and play them quite often. As I work at my home desk or when I sit quietly in the evening I love to listen to her beautiful voice. When Sissel is not playing then Enya or Eva Cassidy or someone similar is on, but Sissel takes precedence.
She really is quite good. I had never heard her. Nice to find a beautiful, new to me voice.
Oops - I meant to like Cecilia, but nothing of Cecilia is on Pandora.
Beautiful voice wonderful inflection. I love her.

I really like her
Wow! I could listen to her forever! And I thought Enya was great! Sissel is definitely in the same league. Thanks for sharing with us.
Beautify sung and really relaxing melody...a voice of an angel:)
I just love!!!!

Absolutely Heavenly! Reminds me of Angels singing in Heaven! So poetic and uplifting!
I can't help but think of the movie Grown Ups when Rob Schneider sang it at the coaches funeral. Beautiful song though.
Lovely

What a beautiful romantic candlelit dinner with my beloved, listening to Sissel's music, then sitting in front of a fire in the fireplace on a rainy evening. sigh.
Beautiful voice
Great song with a good glass of wine. This type of music is quickly becoming my favorite. Way to much trash on the radio today.
Not quite like Otep, but cool
Cooll!!!!!

Her music is beautiful! Never heard such a heartfelt peace.

No, she does not sound like Enya...ether e a l , yes, but in a slightly more operatic fashion. Each lady has her own qualities and ways of making music. I can't remember where I first heard Sissel, but I do know it was sometime around New Year's 2011. Her voice is beautiful and I like hearing her sing in Norwegian... I find it refreshing to hear, really. My mother tongue is English and I hear it every day--but my soul drinks up the sound of non-English languages (though I prefer folk tunes to opera)

Her voice is absolute Beauty...
An old sacred stalwart. A clarion voice. A moment of sublimity. I remember this song being sung at Senator Edward Kennedy and lifting spirits in that surreal moment. (Cee Rex)
Spiritually Sissel takes me to a place of deep peace with in my soul.
I like what I hear. the sound pulls a part of me that wants to be brought out and shared.
I am in love with you Sissel

wonderful voice
The Sea wolf of Elgin Oregon says What a voice, Paul Potts get in step with this lady and the world will be calling. I love the voice. Much like Charlett Church

one word: WOW!!!
La bella donna, bella voce.
Please add The Adventures of Pinocchio.

she has beautiful singing
Sissel has become one of my favorite female vocalists. I have several albums of Celtic Woman but Sissel's style and voice, I think, are superior. And what a lovely lady!
She is beautiful!

One word describes it. WOW!!!
A fantasy? No, a substantial dream -- an exquisite vision with the musical instrument to inspire poets.

Lovely voice and songs

Incredible work for the Lillehammer Olympics!
I really loved this artist. The northern lights cd inspired a scene in my one of my books I'm writing. Really moving artist!
Sissel, How does it feel to be the most beautiful girl on the enternet along with Kathryn Grason?
