Pia Sundhage Releases Debut Single
She may be behind a different team on the sidelines now, but we still love Pia Sundhage who just released a single in Sweden, “Follow Me Through the Winter.”
The track is a song originally written by Sundhage’s nephew and performed by her for her brother’s sixtieth birthday party, but a small record label heard it, liked it, and thought it was time for the Swedish National Team coach to go pro.
She told the Swedish site fotbollskanalen.se:
I thought “oh my God, when you get to a real artist who can this stuff and who is good at singing,” but the record company representative insisted. He said there was much emotion and passion in the song and I conveyed it in a good way.
So give it a listen, it’s actually pretty good.
