Helene Fischer (born August 5, 1984) is a German singer and entertainer. Since her debut in 2005 she has won several awards, including eight Echo awards, four "Krone der Volksmusik" awards and the Bambi award. According to record certifications she has sold at least 9,115,000 albums.[1]

Upbringing and education[edit]

Helene Fischer was born in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia (then the Soviet Union), where she spent her early childhood. In 1988, her ethnic German father immigrated to Germany with his family.[2][3] In Germany, the family settled in the State of Rhineland-Palatinate.

After graduating from school, Helene Fischer attended the Frankfurt Stage & Musical School for three years, where she studied singing and acting.[4] During this time, Helene performed on stage at the State Theatre of Darmstadt, as well as on the stage of National Theatre in Frankfurt.

Career[edit]

During her time at the Stage & Musical School, her mother secretly copied a demo CD with six songs of Helene and sent it to different recording studios to gauge the reaction of professionals.

Helene's debut on stage took place on May 14, 2005, in a program of the TV channel ARD. It was a duet with the singer Florian Silbereisen. The two later became a couple.[3]

Her popularity has increased greatly; 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. Her songs, with their stories of the everyday worries and woes of home-loving folks, are lyrically close to what the English speaking world calls “Country” although musically quite different.

Her circle of fans extends beyond Germany in large part to Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, and Finland.

She released her first English album, "The English Ones", on June 7, 2010. The album was produced by Jean Frankfurter, one of the most renowned German producers, composers and arrangers of the previous 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.”

In January 2013 she made her acting debut in an episode of the German TV series Das Traumschiff.

On October 4, 2013 she released her new album "Farbenspiel" in Germany, and confirmed a Tour in the year 2014.[5] The album received platinum after 5 days in Germany, Denmark and Austria. Farbenspiel is the most successful release of a German female artist in the first week of release the last 10 years.
