Swedish Eurovision Song Contest gold medalist from 1999 and 2008 representative, Charlotte Perelli is on her way to the Beijing Olympics to perform with the composer of the official anthem of the Games and former Latvian national final composer, Robert Wells and his Melodifestivalen duet partner, Sofia Källgren.

A special concert will be held at the Xiang Yun Theatre on the Beijing Olympic Green, where visitors to the Games can attend for free. Charlotte Perelli, along with Sofia Källgren and Robert Wells will perform to the Chinese and international crowd as well as getting the chance to cheer on their compatriots at the largest sporting event in the world.

Sofia Källgren and Robert Wells participated at Melodifestivalen in 2003 with the Operatic entry, My Love. Her first Melodifestivalen entry came in 1989 when she joined The Visitors on the song Världen är vår. They came 7th out of 10.

A year later, she entered as a soloist for the first time, competing against former Eurovision winner Elisabeth Andreasson (Bobbysocks, Norway 1985) and Carola Häggkvist who finished in second place, a year before going on to win the competition. Sofia took a credible 4th place in the final with Handen på hjärtat.
