Jörgen Kjell Elofsson (born 14 January 1962, Ängelholm, Sweden) is a Swedish songwriter, best known for co-writing Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This" (which won an Ivor Novello Award) as well as Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)", which was nominated for Song the Year and Record of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards.


He has written or co-written hits for stars such as Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Guy Sebastian, Ana Johnsson, Marie Serneholt, Shayne Ward and Super Junior. He has also written hit singles for groups such as Il Divo and Westlife. His musical career started when he was 16, and was the lead singer and guitarist in different bands. After that he had a solo career and released two albums in 1989 and 1992, under the name "Shane".

Elofsson became a full-time songwriter in 1994, when he worked with the Swedish artist Carola. His work at Cheiron Studios began in January 1998, and he has mainly been working together with David Kreuger and Per Magnusson.

In 2005 he created the record label Planet Six, part of former BMG, currently Universal Music Publishing Group.

In 2006 his song "The Time of Our Lives" was chosen as FIFA's official anthem for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. It was performed by Il Divo and Toni Braxton.

On May 7, 2013, Janet Leon announced her new single "New Colours", that was written by Leon, Elofsson, Lisa Desmond and Jesper Jakobsson. "New Colours" was chosen as the official song for Stockholm Pride 2013.[1]
