Frans Jeppsson-Wall was born in Ystad in 1998, his father comes from Nigeria. In the age of seven he had the chance to sing with the rock band Elias, and the song “Who’s da man”. This was an adoration of the famous Swedish football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the World Cup 2006. The performance at the Skansen Allsång has captured the Swedes by a storm. The cute little boy was singing his song in a shy but lovely way. This song became #1 in Sweden for 13 weeks! . Two years later Frans and Elias made another song for the European football championship “Fotbalfest” . Then Frans took a break, eight years later he participated at the Melodifestivalen.
The song “If I Were Sorry”is a swinging good-mood song very authentic though even if the song is about a difficult love story. The unpretentious presentation of Frans is outstanding and very sympathetic. This will animate a lot of jury members and televoters to vote for Sweden. The song has been downloaded more than four million times already and became #1 in Sweden immediately.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
