Anita Hegerland (born 3 March 1961 in Sandefjord, Norway), is a Norwegian singer famous for her childhood career in the Scandinavian and German markets and subsequent vocal contributions to amongst others Mike Oldfield's work. Anita was discovered at age 8 by Fredrik Friis during a Christmas show where she was performing. Hegerland's musical career took off in 1970 with Mitt Sommarlov ("My summer holiday") in Scandinavian countries. It spent 22 weeks on Norway's singles chart, with two weeks at #1, and the song was also a #1 hit in Sweden. In 1971 she released a single with German artist Roy Black, Schön ist es auf der Welt zu sein ("It's beautiful to be in the world") in German speaking countries.

The song was recorded both with German and Norwegian vocals. It sold over 2 million copies (whereof more than 1,3 million in Germany), and spent 30 weeks on the singles chart (top peak #3) in Norway. In total she had four different albums on the Norwegian chart as a child star. The last one in 1973 (when she was 12 years old). She also participated in the Norwegian final (for entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1971), but did not win.

She continued as a pop singer in Germany and Scandinavia for several years and then pursued an adult vocal career with greater artistic ambition (but less popular success). Performing on his non-album single Pictures in the Dark in 1985, she met British musician Mike Oldfield. She also sings on two of his 1980s albums; Islands and Earth Moving. She has two children with him, Greta and Noah, and now lives in Nesøya near Oslo.
