LARS “DILLE” DIEDRICSON DIED

It is sad that with the final of the Swedish selection happening this weekend, we learn of the death of Lars “Dille” Diedricson. He was born on the 12th of August 1961 and died on the 6th of March 2017 in Gothenburg. He won the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 as the songwriter for “Take Me to Your Heaven” performed by Charlotte Nilsson for Sweden. Patricia Lewis covered it in South Africa and it went double platinum. Lars was so impressed with Patricia’s cover that he produced a CD for her in Stockholm in 2000.
