On Saturday, it slams for 25-year-old Julia Alfrida when she makes her debut in the Melodifestivalen with the song Rich. But it may not be so obvious who she actually is – so we have found out.
Got a direct ticket to the Melodifestivalen
Julia Alfrida is 25 years old and grew up in Åkersberga in Stockholm.
Her latest song “Pretty dreams” she released in October last year, but has before that released several singles and an EP.
But the opportunity to be on stage in Sweden’s largest music competition was actually about p4’s music competition – p4 Next. There she performed with the song “Dark Doom” went on to the final, and then got a direct ticket to the Melodifestivalen.
But being on stage is not unfamiliar to Julia. In 2019, she was a member of the activist punk band – Pussy Riots when they performed at Stockholm Pride.
Wanted to turn into a guy as a six-year-old
Just queer questions are something that the artist is strongly behind. The song “Rich” that she will perform in between is about loving herself and the experiences and relationships that give life value.
Julia’s childhood has not been straightforward. As a six-year-old, she told her mother she wanted to turn into a boy. Which meant that she was characterized by a mental illness by adapting to societal norms. Today she wants to help others feel included and has also become a role model for many people.
Searched for Lilla Melodifestivalen
She has been involved in music since childhood and wrote her first song as an eight-year-old. In fact, she applied to the Little Melody Festival but chose to go on a school trip instead of an audition. Luckily she got the chance again..a few years later!
She has also studied at Anders Bagge’s education “Dreamhill music academy” in Örnsköldsvik.
What else is there to say about Julia Alfrida?
She came out as bisexual on her Instagram two years ago. She then wrote in a post that she hopes that in the future there will be no “come out”. Without all people being just who they want to be. Today we can sign in one of the posts that she is happy with a new girlfriend – but who is still unknown.
