Michelle Cleave had always been told she looked like Agneta Fältskog, a member of ABBA; the unforgettable pop group that took the '70s and '80s by storm. "People always used to stop me and said, 'You look and sound just like that girl from ABBA.' One day someone asked if I would like to be part of ABBA show, and then it all started from there," said Cleave.
This and a lifelong love for the Swedish band and their music led Cleave to form the UK-based Name of the Game in 2006, with other ABBA enthusiasts, which as she said, was something she had always wanted to do. "Many of their song names have already been taken, but Name of the Game has always been an old favourite," said Cleave.
At the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium last night, wearing ABBA's signature glittering '80s-style costumes, they treated the Capital to A Concert with A Cause, to raise funds for patients with Thalassemia Major.
The band played hits such as Mamma Mia, Take a Chance, and The Winner Takes it All. It truly did look as though it was a follow-up to the iconic band.
Other singers such as Louise did a brilliant impression of Anni-Frida (Freeda), while Steven took the role of Björn Ulvaeuson on the guitar; Harry was on the keyboard as Benny Andersson, with Matthew on drums.
With this inspiring homage to the icons, there truly was something in the air last night.
