My Heart Is Yours

Didrik Solli-Tangen was born on a summer day twenty-two years ago outside of Porsgrunn, a town situated a couple of hours south west of Oslo, Norway. He had a typical Norwegian childhood and among his interests were off-road biking, skateboarding and of course, music.

At 15 years-old, Didrik formed a band with some friends and became a drummer. One day, the lead singer wanted some back-up harmonies, and he turned to Didrik. Didrik had discovered his voice; he started performing in front of classmates and family, and joined the local "high-school musical."

His father got Didrik a professional voice coach, Anders Vangen, the best vocal coach in the area. Didrik’s father wanted his son to move in a classical direction, but Didrik adamantly refused; he was heavily inspired by Robbie Williams and his likes. However, his coach slowly introduced him to great operatic singers and it didn`t take long before Didrik learned to hit the high "C".

Didrik is currently a full-time student at the highly acclaimed Barratt Due Institute of performing arts in Oslo. Didrik met composer Hanne Sørvaag at the Eurovision Song Contest pre-selections in Skien, Norway. She hails from Stavanger, Norway, and now lives in Stockholm, Sweden. Together with well-known Swedish tune-smith Fredrik Kempe she wrote Didrik’s entry to the national competition.

On February 6th 2010, Didrik won the national finale at Oslo Spektrum, and he feels honoured and proud to represent Norway in the European finals at Fornebu Arena on May 29th with My Heart Is Yours.

Lyrics of My Heart Is Yours

(Original)

You are like a sunset Behind a mountain Somewhere And when I cannot see you I know you're still there
Because my heart is yours I'll never leave you Though we are far apart I'm by your side My love is never gone, I feel it rise again Through it all now my heart is yours
You say I am the moonlight I watch you At night And when you cannot see me I’m still there in the sky
Because my heart is yours I'll never leave you Though we are far apart I'm by your side My love is never gone, I feel it rise again Through it all now my heart is yours
