Anni-Frid Synni, Princess Reuss of Plauen, widely known as Frida Lyngstad or by just the mononym Frida, is a Swedish pop and jazz singer.
She is the most wonderful and beautiful singer in the pop music world! Thanks to her chocolate-velvet voice some songs like "Knowing Me, Knowing You"; "Money, Money, Money"; "Fernando"; "One Man, One Woman"; "I Have A Dream"; "The King Has Lost His Crown"; "Lovers Live A Little Longer"; "Super Trouper"; "Andante, Andante"; "Our Last Summer"; "The Piper"; "The Visitors" and "When All Is Said And Done" have taken on their proper sound. In my opinion, Frida's voice, appearance, style and acting skills are better than Agnetha's! I love her! I adore her!

@visitor - even after the "Brexit" they are still European singers because the UK is still in Europe. The list title doesn't say singers from the European Union. The UK left the European Union but I am afraid they can't leave Europe - Metal_Treasure
