Jakob Sveistrup (born March 8, 1972) is a Danish singer. He entered the Danish music scene in 2003 as a competitor in the Danish televised talent contest Stjerne for en aften ("Star For A Night"). He made it to the finals. Unusually, Sveistrup is not a professional singer — by day he teaches autistic children. In March 2006 Jakob resigned from this job, to make music his full time career. Jakob then went on to compete in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, which took place in Forum Horsens on February 12, 2005.
