Evie (born Evie Tornquist in 1957[1]) is a contemporary Christian music singer who was known in the late 1970s and early 1980s for songs such as "Mirror", "Step into the Sunshine" and "Four Feet Eleven".[2]

Born in the United States to Norwegian immigrants, Evie began her singing career as a young teenager while visiting her parents' homeland.[3] She released her English language debut album at 16 in 1972,[4] and went on to release more than 30 albums, including several in various Scandinavian languages.[3] Evie was recognized as the Dove Award recipient of Female Vocalist of the Year for 1977 and 1978.[5] She married Swedish pastor and musician Pelle Karlsson in 1979 and retired from performing music in 1981 to pursue other avenues of ministry, such as Sky Angel.[6] Evie later became a mentor to Christian musician Rebecca St. James,[4] joining her for an event series geared toward helping girls and women apply biblical principles in the 21st century.[7]

Evie was officially inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame on February 22, 2005,[3] and was one of the inaugural inductees to the Christian Music Hall of Fame.[8]

Three of her albums were nominated for Grammy Award for best Contemporary Gospel performance: Mirror (1978), Come On, Ring Those Bells (1979), Never the Same (1980).
