At a young age, Anni along with her mother and grandmother moved to Sweden, wary of the fact that they might get separated due to their association with Germans during World War II. Her mother died at a young age and she was raised by her grandmother. Her love for music developed since her grandmother loved singing, and she soon showed a talent for music, and had a beautiful voice. When she was 13, she got a job in a dance band and also took singing lessons. She then joined a big band performing jazz. In 1963, she then formed her own band called Anni-Frid Four.Her net worth was established.

Four years later, Frida would win a national talent competition held by record company EMI, and started to gain exposure through television and get noticed by many record companies,which prompted EMI to sign her quickly. She released her first album entitled “Frida” in 1971 which drew a lot of critical acclaim, and had a Swedish number one hit with “Min Egen Stad”, which was backed up by future members of ABBA, and continued to tour and perform regularly.

Eventually, her friendship with Agnetha Faltskog and Bjorn Ulvaeus would lead to the formation of ABBA, which became one of the best-selling bands ever, worldwide, and contributing greatly to Anni-FrId’s net worth. Frida would become known for singing solo parts on songs such as “Fernando”, “I Have a Dream”, “Money, Money, Money”, “The Visitors”, and many more. She was put into the spotlight more than other members of ABBA, and helped co-design their costumes. She released a solo album called “Frida ensam” which became a critical and commercial success in Sweden.

1982 would be the last year that ABBA worked together. Frida started to work on a solo album called “Something’s Going On”, and it became a huge success in 1995, thanks partly to production done by Phil Collins, and the song “I Know There’s Something Going On” would reach the top of the charts in numerous countries. Two years later, she worked on another album called “Shine”, but which had less success. Five years later, she recorded the Swedish language album “Djupa andetag” which got a lot of positive reviews, hitting the top of the Swedish chart. She continued to work on other music projects and collaborations until 2004.

In 2005, she took a hiatus from music, but would return to do collaborations with other artists. In 2016, it was announced that Frida has joined ABBA once again for an upcoming reunion project.

For her personal life, it is known that Anni married musician Ragnar Fredriksson in 1964 and they have two children, before they divorced in 1970. She would then have a long term relationship with Benny Andersson before they married in 1978, but they divorced three years later. In 1982, she met architect Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss, and they would marry in 1992, which lasted until the prince’s death in 1999. She is currently in a relationship with Henry Smith, 5th Viscount Hambleden. Later in her career, Lyngstad became focused on environmental work, becoming part of the Swedish organization The Natural Step. She also became the chairwoman of Artists for the Environment in 1991.
