The 19th of May is the world premiere of the official song for World Transplant Games 2011. The song Captain of the Ship is written and performed by Magnus Rosén, former member of the metal band Hammerfall.
This year Göteborg is hosting the event World Transplant Games, an international sport event for organ transplants, that will take place the 17 to 24 June 2011 with over 1000 athletes from 54 countries. Magnus Rosén and the opera singer Carolina Sandgren will perform the official song during the opening ceremony at Lisebergshallen in Göteborg June 18.
- This is the first time that I have created both the music and the lyrics which is really great”, says Magnus Rosén.
World Transplant Games is a contest where all participants are winners, after a long battle against life-threatening illnesses. The athletes have all been saved by different transplants. Without donors, none of these transplants would have been possible.
World Transplant Games 2011 royal patron is Prince Daniel, himself is a kidney recipient and will visit on June 18th.
