John Lundvik, a singer, songwriter, composer and former athlete, competed in and won Sweden‘s popular Melodifestivalen music festival with his song “Too Late for Love” and thus will represent the Scandinavian country at Tel Aviv 2019. He came in third in Melodifestivalen in 2018 and boasts a number of writing credits across Europe.

“Too Late for Love” is a gospel pop song that is relatively self explanatory. The song’s lyrics largely revolve around Lundvik speaking to someone who’s in a dark place and encourages them that he will be by their side to bring light to their proverbial abyss.

Born in London, Lundvik was put in foster care until he was adopted by Swedish parents and moved to Sweden. He was previously a sprinter, competing in races and relays before he turned to music. With numerous writing credits to his name, some of his more notable songs include Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling’s wedding song and fellow competitor Michael Rice‘s entry for the United Kingdom.
