Biography

Anna Saba Lykke Oehlenschlæger, who performs under the single name Saba (presented in uppercase), is a Danish singer, actor and model.

Born Anna Saba Lykke Oehlenschlæger, she and her twin, Andrea Lykke Oehlenschlæger, were adopted from Ethiopia when they were just eight months old, growing up in Ringkøbing, Jutland.

In the year 2018, Oehlenschlæger shared her diagnosis of bipolar I disorder, having been admitted to the hospital multiple times until 2020. This part of her life was detailed in the documentary produced by DR in 2020 titled “Min sindssyge tvilling” (My Insane Twin). Her teenage years were also marked by instances of self-harm. She currently serves as an ambassador for the Danish Depression Association.

Saba left high school prematurely and, along with her sister, relocated to Copenhagen. There, she embarked on a career as a model and an entrepreneur in the teeth whitening industry, while her sister sought a career in singing and musical theater. Saba made her first appearance as a musical theatre actress, as a non-stunt performer, on 23 February 2023. She stepped in for her sister Andrea, who was pregnant at the time, in the role of Dionne in the musical Hair at the Østre Gasværk Teater.

Her significant career milestone came on 25 January 2024, when she was announced as one of the contestants in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024, Denmark’s selection event for the Eurovision Song Contest. She secured her position as Denmark’s representative at the contest by winning the final on 17 February 2024, with her song “Sand.”
