Forente Artister

Canzoni contro la guerra di Forente Artister

Forente Artister (English: United Artists) was a group of Norwegian artists that went together in 1985 to record the song Sammen for livet (English: Together for Life) in order to raise money for the victims of hunger in Africa. The lyrics were written by Halvdan Sivertsen and the melody by Åge Aleksandersen. This project was inspired by Band Aid and Forente Artister was thus part of a large humanitarian initiative. The project resulted in an album which in addition to Sammen for livet also consisted of several newly recorded songs by some of the participators. The song and the project received a special award in the Spellemannsprisen 1985 (The Norwegian equivalent to Grammy awards).
