Profile

Anja grew up on a large rural estate at the foothills of the Blue Mountains, 1 hour outside Sydney. Her youth was spent practicing singing and competing in a plethora of vocalist competitions, which she often won.

The State Education Department selected her to join an elite group of students for their Talent Development Program. Through TDP and the associated annual Schools Spectacular, Anja sang at major events including for Crown Princess Mary of Denmark plus performed at prestigious venues such as The Sydney Opera House and The Sydney Entertainment Centre.

This enabled Anja to develop an ease and confidence when singing before large audiences. She also gained valuable television experience through her time on Australia’s Got Talent and Young Talent Time.

Upon finishing High School Anja decided to enter The Voice Australia. She got through and was mentored by Will.I.Am of Black-Eyed Peas, who took her right through to becoming that seasons WINNER (2014). Universal soon released her related TV album and then single “I’m So Excited” which featured Will.I.Am and Cody Wise. Thereafter Anja released more tracks including “Anyone Who Had a Heart”, ‘Triumph’, “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” (We Love Disney – compilation) and “Joy to the World” (Spirit of Christmas – compilation).

Anja spent the next 2 years touring, recording, and bettering her song writing skills plus as a dual citizen she travelled often between Australia and Denmark. Anja’s next big goal was to represent Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest. This took two attempts. First in 2016 and then eventually winning the Melody Grand Prix Denmark in 2017. This led to her placing Top 20 in Eurovision with the co- composed song, “Where I Am”. A 5 track EP was launched off the back of this international exposure and success.
