Princess Anni-Frid Synni of Reuss, Countess of Plauen (née Lyngstad; born 15 November 1945), better known by her nickname Frida, is a Norwegian-Swedish singer, songwriter, and environmentalist. She is best known as one of the founding members and lead singers of the Swedish pop band ABBA. Born in Ballangen to a Norwegian mother and a German father, she grew up in Torshälla, and started her first solo career there, as a jazz singer in 1967, through a talent competition called New Faces
Anni-Frid Synni Lyngstad, better known simply as Frida, was born November 15, 1945 in Ballangen outside of Narvik, Norway. soldier, and her mother, Synni Lyngstad, was a Norwegian teenage girl. Frida’s father left Norway before Frida was born, and was thought to have vanished when his ship was sunk on the way back to Germany. 18 months after Frida’s birth she moved to Sweden with her grandmother, Agny. This was followed by the 1984 album Shine, produced by Steve Lillywhite. But then Frida withdrew from the public for a number of years.
Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad, better known to the world since 1973 as Frida and a member (and ex-member) of ABBA, had a fairly extensive recording career before joining the quartet. This double-CD set collects her various singles and LPs from that phase of her career, most of which were cut for the Swedish division of EMI Records. The hope is, obviously, that this collection will surprise and delight fans of ABBA, but there's considerable risk here as well - that at least the first two-thirds of the first disc will bore or appall those same fans

Although he was already married, Haase met a pretty young Norwegian girl named Synni Lyngstad and wooed her with a bag of potatoes-a rare and valuable commodity in wartime Norway. Synni reciprocated with a gift of whale meat, and the pair struck up a relationship. Eventually Synni became pregnant, but after the war ended Haase left Norway before his daughter.
