Eurovision 1984 Winner Richard Herrey knows how to throw a party
As we look forward to the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden, a past Swedish winner of the contest Richard Herrey threw a party that any Eurovision fan would have loved to attended.
Richard rose to international prominence alongside his brothers Per and Louis back in the 1980s. Known as The Herreys, the sibling trio took home the Eurovision crown back in 1984 with their song “Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley.”
Now a days Richard works as the General Manager of the Hard Rock Cafe in Stockholm, which celebrated 30 years in 2015. To mark this momentous occasion Richard threw a great party inviting all his friends.
The guest list included: Dr. Alban (artist turned producer), Annika Ljunberg (Rednex), Eclipse (Melodifestivalen 2016 contestant), Anna Book (Melodifestivalen 2016 contestant), Jan Johansen (Sweden’s entry at Eurovision 1995), and many more.
The highlight of the night came when Richard Herrey surprised everyone by re-proposing to his wife, Marie. A video package aired showcasing moments of the couple since they first met, ending with, “Marie Herrey, will you marry me… again.” Asked why the second proposal, Richard responded, “I did not get a chance to properly propose to my wife the first time, it was very fast and just over the phone. I have been thinking about it for a long time, and I wanted to do it right.” Of course the blushing bride said yes, so we can expect to hear wedding bells again for Richard and Marie Herrey in the near future.
