Vanna Mantefors was born 2001 in Norrköping, Sweden. Despite her young age she has already done a lot. It all started in 2014 when she got the role as Brigitta von Trapp in The Sound of Music at Östgötateatern. It was a dream for her to work with professional artists and do what she loves in front of a big audience. That changed a lot for Vanna, she started thinking that her dream of becoming an artist might come true. She continued performing at weddings, smaller events and at local and regional theatres. In 2017 she joined a music competition for seniors in elementary school in Norrköping. She wrote the pop song “It’s gonna take some time”, a song about the teens. All the pressure teenagers go through, how to look, how to act, how to feel. About how everything seems hopeless and how you wish it’ll soon end. It was the first self-written song she has sung in front of an audience, and she won the competition. Now she combines working with music in her spare time and studying music at the Swedish upper secondary high school. After the competition she got in touch with a musician who wanted to record her song and release it on Spotify and Itunes. With the help of four experienced musicians she released it on August 24th. After that, the song has been played both live and recorded at the local radio station.
When she has finished school she wants to continue studying and working with music both in Sweden and abroad. Either with musical theatres or with her own music. As long as she gets to do what she loves.
