My Lisa Karolina Nilsson (born August 13, 1970, in TyresÃ¶) is a Swedish singer. She is perhaps best known in Sweden for her 1992 hit, Himlen runt hÃ¶rnet, produced by Mauro Scocco and Johan Ekelund. It was released in English in 1995, titled Ticket to Heaven. She has released three subsequent albums, Till Morelia in 1995, Viva in 2000 and SmÃ¥ Rum in 2002, all in Swedish. A greatest hits compilation, Samlade sÃ¥nger followed in 2003 and contained two new songs. Prior to Himlen runt hÃ¶rnet she had released two English language albums, Lean On Love in 1989 and Indestructible in 1991.
Nilsson's style ranges from out and out pop music to soul-inflected ballads and dance tracks on her earlier albums to a more mature jazz feel in her more recent work, perhaps reflecting familial connections as her father GÃ¶sta Nilsson is a jazz pianist.
She has recently moved into acting with appearances in the Swedish TV sitcom, Cleo, and a role in the Swedish film Paradiset made by British-born director Colin Nutley.
