by Fernando Méndez 786 views

The three times Eurovision entrant for Germany Katja Ebstein turned 70 last March and she still has the stamina to step onto the stage and keep on singing. A tour around Germany and the country’s Eurovision Fan meeting are her forthcoming acts.

It could be safely stated that Katja Ebstein is a German Eurovision icon. She represented her country three times in the Eurovision Song Contest with quite a satisfying outcome in each occasion: twice third and once second. The victory eluded her, but she can still be proud of never falling below the top-three.

Last March Katja Ebstein turned 70 and retirement does not appear to be in her agenda, as we learn from the site that the German singer and actress will embark on a tour throughout Germany with ten performances in the coming weeks.

In line with her role as a Eurovision idol, she will pay a visit to Cologne for a special occasion: the Eurovision Club Germany will be celebrating its 15th Anniversary with a special gathering on 14 November 2015 and Katja Ebstein will join the event as a special guest. There she will offer a one-hour concert to the attendees as part of the program of the fan meeting. More guest artists are expected for the occasion, with the Serbian Eurovision 2015 entrant Bojana Stamenov and the German Eurovision 2012 singer Roman Lob already announced.

The Eurovision Club Germany Annual Convention will be held in the Gloria Theater of Cologne.

Katja Ebstein was the German entrant in three Eurovision Song Contests: 1970 with Wunder gibt es immer wieder, 1971 with Diese Welt and 1980 with Theater.
