Her first English language album with English versions of her best German songs: „The English Ones“
She is the brightest star in the firmament of German song, the Queen of „Schlager“ and, quite simply, Germany’s most popular female entertainer.
Helene Fischer was born in 1984 in Russia, and spent her early childhood in the Siberian town of Krasnojarsk, before her ethnic German family immigrated to Germany. Her star qualities were “discovered” in 2005, not only her golden crystal-clear voice, but also her charismatic personality. Airs and graces are not for her, and she has never been one for advancing her own interests at the expense of others.
Her popularity has been crowned with success; she has won three prestigious “Echo” (German Grammy) awards, the coveted “Goldene Henne” twice, and the “Krone der Volksmusik” prize three times. All her albums and dvds have achieved multiple gold and double platinum status.
Helene Fischer is a graduate of the Frankfurt Stage & Musical School, where she studied singing and acting. Her songs, with their stories of the everyday worries and woes of home-loving folks, are close to what the English speaking world calls “Country”.
Her circle of fans extends beyond Germany to Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Scandinavia. She has just released her first English album, produced by Jean Frankfurter, one of the most renowned German producers, composers and arrangers of the past 40 years.
The album opens new horizons for Helene: “I have always dreamed of singing my songs in another language. English is the language of Country, the music that we call ’Schlager’. Language is a tool, but it is important that what you sing comes from the heart – and that is what this album is about.”
