Peter Performs at Royal Wedding

Peter Jöback performed at the wedding of Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill in Sweden yesterday. It was a lightning visit since Peter had to get back to New York for his appearance at the Tony Awards. Consequently, Peter missed the after party.

Madeleine had personally requested that Peter sing at the wedding. The couple chose the romantic “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”, made famous by Roberta Flack.

You can watch Peter’s performance on SVT Play here.
