Christiane "Bobo(lina)" Herbold is a German singer of Bobo in White Wooden Houses.[1] She also contributed backing vocals to selected Rammstein songs.

Bobo in White Wooden Houses[edit]

In 1990, Bobo formed the band Bobo in White Wooden Houses with Frank Heise, who became the band's guitarist. The band's original line-up included Axel "Lexa" Schäfer on bass (until 1995 and again since 2007) and Ulli Lange on drums (until 1992). In 1995, Heise's suicide caused the band to call a hiatus, which lasted until 2004.

Work with Rammstein[edit]

Bobo provides backing vocals for several Rammstein songs. Her contributions started with Sehnsucht's "Engel", which she has also performed with the band live, as can be seen in Live aus Berlin. She can also be heard in "Nebel", from 2001 album Mutter. In 2005's, Rosenrot she sang on "Stirb nicht vor mir" in the German version of the song, which did not make the final cut, but she can be heard in the backing vocals of the English version, where the female lead was provided by Sharleen Spiteri. However, Rammstein keyboardist Flake Lorenz has claimed he preferred the German version with Bobo's vocals.
