Remember Frida from ABBA? Sit down before seeing how regal she looks at 77

ABBA became one of the greatest groups of all time in the 1970s and 1980s. The Swedish band with Bjorn Ulveaus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad (more famously known as Frida Lyngstad) took over the world with their new kind of music – and still to this day, the four are famous all over the world.

As ABBA split, the four members went in different directions. For Frida Lyngstad, that meant moving on to a solo career. But today, she has disappeared from the spotlight to live a calm and private life.

So what is she doing today? And what does she look like today, age 77? This is all you need to know about her!

There are very few people that haven’t heard ABBA. It doesn’t matter if you were there when they performed Waterloo for the first time, or weren’t born for another 30 years. The 10-year-olds of today most likely dance just as wildly as anyone ever did upon hearing the group’s music.

ABBA – worldwide superstars

Something that’s pretty unique about ABBA is the fact that all of the members virtually disappeared following the group’s split. Sure, they continued to make music, but they were content to live a quiet life outside of the spotlight. Agnetha Faltskog certainly was – and that also went for Anni-Frid “Frida” Lyngstad.

So what happened to Frida following ABBA’s split? And what is she doing today? This is all you need to know about her!

Anni-Frid Lyngstad Agnetha Faltskog

Frida Lyngstad was actually born outside of Narvik, Norway on November 15, 1945. She moved to Sweden when she was only 18 months old and early on in her life, she had to deal with some very difficult personal tragedies.

Frida Lyngstad – early life

Her father disappeared during World War II, and her mother passed away less than two years after she was born.

Frida grew up in the town of Torshälla outside of Eskilstuna, Sweden. At an early age she developed an interest in singing and performing, and at age 11,  she made her stage debut at a Red Cross charity event.

“I never had any other plans. As a 7-year-old I knew that it was a singer I was going to be,” Frida said in a 1973 interview.

Frida Lyngstad was all about performing. She started working with several bands, and in 1961, she met her first husband. Together with Ragnar Fredriksson, she welcomed two children in Hans (born 1963) and Lise-Lotte (1967). However, their marriage ended in divorce in 1970.

Frida continued her work as a singer, and in 1967 she won a talent contest in Stockholm, Sweden. She was signed to EMI records, but she didn’t quite get any commercial success.

In 1969, Frida met Benny Andersson, who then was a member of the group Hep Stars. He had previously worked with another talented musician, Bjorn Ulveaus, who, at the point, was dating a singer named Agnetha Faltskog.
