I am trying to think of the name of the song... there were many children dancing around, dressed in Pioneer outfits... anyone know the name of the song they danced to back in the 1994 Winter Olympics, Norway? PS, nobody sang this song... it was instrumental only. Very upbeat, lots of string instruments, lasted almost ten minutes. Sorry to say that the two answers so far are not what I was looking for... :(

"Sissel Kyrkjebø International audiences came to know Sissel Kyrkjebø during the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, Norway, where she sang the hymn in the opening and closing ceremony. Prior to the Games, she toured in concert throughout the world, and recorded the official Olympic song "Fire in Your Heart" in duet with Plácido Domingo, resulting in an international hit. hope this helps..."

"Sissel Kyrkjebø (born June 24, 1969 in Bergen, Norway), also known as just Sissel, is a Norwegian singer. She is best known for singing the Olympic Hymn (Hymne Olympique) at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway February 1994 Sissel performed during the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer. The world renowned tenor Plácido Domingo visited Norway during the Olympics, where he came across one of her earlier albums. He contacted Sissel and the next day they recorded ''Fire In Your Heart,'' an English version of ''Se ilden lyse,'' the official theme song of the Lillehammer Olympics. These two versions of the song were released in February 1994 on Sissel's solo album ''Innerst i sjelen(Deep Within My Soul)'' a collection of Nordic folk songs. Plácido Domingo invited Sissel, along with world-renowned French singer Charles Aznavour to partake in his annual Christmas concert in Vienna later that year. The concert was broadcast around the world as well as released as an album internationally."
