Sixteen-year-old Sarah's second single
Okay has topped the Danish charts at number two after less
than three weeks.
Sarah, born Sarah Skaalum Jorgensen,
won the Danish talent reality series The X Factor in March at
the age of 15, becoming the first out lesbian to win any X Factor
competition. She won over the judges singing a rendition of Lady
Gaga's Poker Face, except instead of getting “him hot to
show what she's got,” Sarah altered to lyrics to show another
Sarah's sexuality is almost a non-issue
in open-minded Denmark, a stark contrast to similar programs in the
United States which feel the need to keep gay contestants in the
closet. However, this year on the NBC reality contest The Voice
four openly gay contestants and two, Vicci
Martinez and Beverly
McClellan, reached the final four.
In Okay, which is off the album
Hjerteskudan (Heart Shot),
Sarah sings of teenage angst but confides in the end that she's okay.
