Joy Fleming (born Erna Raad; 15 November 1944, Rockenhausen – 27 September 2017, Sinsheim),[1] aka Erna Libenow, was a German singer best known for her performance in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1975. She performed the song "Ein Lied kann eine Brücke sein"[2] and was placed seventeenth out of nineteen countries.

She made a further Eurovision bid in 1986, participating in the German national contest with the song "Miteinander". Her next involvement with Eurovision came in 2001 when, under a somewhat confusing arrangement with Swiss television she co-sang their contribution to the German final. The song, "Power of Trust" was performed with two other singers, Lesley Bogaert and Brigitte Oelke, and was placed second. Fleming made another attempt in 2002 and finished as runner-up yet again, this time performing "Joy to the World" with the group Jambalaya.
