About Michael Schulte
Michael Schulte was born in 1990 in Dollerup, Germany. His career started in 2008 by releasing covers of popular songs on YouTube. This offered him the oppotunity to sign a contract with Weinstein Media. Afterwards, he became known to the wider audience when he took part and came third in the first edition of The Voice of Germany in 2011.
His first personal album Wide awake was released in 2012, having unveiled two more albums since, entitled The arising and Hold the rhythm. In addition, his debut single Carry me home reached remarkably high positions in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
