Anne Dorte Michelsen (born 17 July 1958, Århus) is a Danish singer and composer. In Denmark she first became known as a member of the groups Tøsedrengene and Venter på Far. Outside Denmark her second solo record ("Næste Dans") sold well in Norway, Sweden and Japan. Her popularity in Japan was due to the song "Fortrolighed" which was a title song on a popular Japanese TV-show.[1] The exotic Danish language and the longing melancholy mood apparently made a resonance with the Japanese audience. As a leader, she released ten albums and published a book called Næste Dans. [2][3]
