Jenny Rogneby was born in Ethiopia 1974, but was given away for adoption when she was one year old. She grew up in the north part of Sweden, in a small town called Boden. With both parents working in the Swedish army and with the cold snowy winters, Jenny grew up in an environment different from most African little girls. Her mother and father discovered her musical talent and put her in piano- and dancing classes at the age of five and that was the beginning of her first career as a pop artist. Her biggest performance was as the opening act for Michael Jackson in front of an audience of 80 000 in Tallinn, Estonia. She also released an album in Japan at the big record company JVC, but in Sweden she's mostly known as a singer and one of the members of the girl group Cosmo4. The group had some radiohits and performed in Melodifestivalen, the Swedish TV broadcast semi-final for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007.
