Germany: Nicole on tour

by Robin Scott 400 views

It’s thirty three years since the song Ein bisschen frieden won the Eurovision Song Contest for Nicole. A worldwide hit followed and her career took off.

She has just participated in the London concert celebrating the 60th edition in March 2015 but this isn’t the only performance of her song this year. There will be many more including her tour entitled Das ist mein weg or This is my way. This tour covers the length and breadth of Germany ending at the Stadthalle Osterholz-Scharmbeck on 17 May, just a few days before the three Eurovision shows in Vienna. With her creative team, Nicole has put together a stage show which takes us on a musical journey from the African south coast and back to the Grand Prix d’Eurovision in Harrogate. An evening full of feeling and of impressive musical intensity.

She has recently been interviewed on the site where Nico Beck talked to the German songstress about a variety of subjects. Read some of what she had to say: Does it bother you to be asked to sing your song over and over again?

Nicole: No, definitely not. When I get to sing such a song I am so grateful. I am permanently attached to the song and will always be the girl with the white guitar. When did you realize that you had sung a hymn for eternity?

Nicole: When I recorded the song in the studio, it was a magical moment. I knew it would be something big. I recorded the song in one go. Ralph Siegel then left the studio in tears and literally said: We win the Eurovision. 

She has been married for thirty years and was asked whether the love for her husband is the key to her greatest success?

I think so. We are often ridiculed because we have no scandals. I think it must be. I always wanted everything I did to be with honesty. Anything else would not make me happy.
