Eric Saade is one of Sweden’s most popular musicians. His solo career began in 2009 after he left the pop group What’s Up.

I met him for an interview in Oslo several years ago, and he spoke about his music and inspiration.

Following the interview, I photographed Eric in the restaurant where he greeted journalists and bloggers. It was dark, so I didn’t expect to get any decent pictures. However, I gave them a green vibe. You can see one of them in this story.

Eric is talented and hard-working. I love the fact that he never apologizes for his success.

Be proud of your successes, friends!

Here are 3 live performances, starting in 2010. Enjoy!
