Describe yourself in three words:
Family man, fighter, superstar.
My lucky charm:
My brother’s rings, my basketball that I always have in the car.
basketball, fifa, scuba diving,
When did you start singing?
I was singing, I couldn’t even speak properly. I never believed that I could really sing. My brother firmly believed that I could sing very well and would sneak into my room at night and literally blackmail me. He recorded it on an old cell phone and then passed it to me. That night I got to hear my voice for the first time and yes… the rest is history again
My idol/role model and why?
Musically ? Ed Sheeran, because of the singer/songwriter thing that I can relate to immensely and because of the variety of his songs in genres. But my idol of independent music life is my father. He escaped the war, fought every day non-stop for 20-30 years to give me, my brother and our whole family the life we have today.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strengths: I love criticism and I always take it as a motivation to continue and improve myself again and again. Besides, I never give up. No matter how bad it seems for me or my team, I always fight until the end. I would say my biggest weakness is that I put too much pressure on myself too often, I’m an absolute overthinker and that increases my stress a lot. Also, sometimes I’m a really lazy bastard. And I can’t cook, but I love food more than anything.
Why did you apply to DSDS?
I’ve been watching the show since I was little and was a fan before I even knew I could sing. I used to run into the living room with my brother in the morning to quickly check teletext to see who had been kicked out of themed shows last night. When I was abroad I couldn’t follow the show as closely as before and after I returned to Germany my brother insisted for months that I do it and that I could do it 100 %. He’s the reason I’m here and why I’ve come all this way.
My favorite judge and why:
I really respect and love the three judges. All are special in their own way. I mostly talked to Florian and felt somehow connected, a super friendly guy and a genuine man. Ilse is super warm and accommodating and she brought me the happiest news about entering the TOP 25 and Top 10 and gave me two amazing moments that I will never forget. Toby complimented me on my own song and talked to me a lot about everything and is one of my absolute songwriting idols. He’s a music legend and I’m incredibly proud to have worked with him.
For me, DSDS means:
The chance to turn my great love into work.
I win DSDS because…:
…I don’t want this victory for myself, but for everyone who has always been there for me and who has brought me this far. Because I look after my father, my mother and especially my brother. Because I just want to finally be able to help my family financially and I want to FINALLY get my dad with seven herniated discs away from the construction site with my music. This is the biggest dream of my life, which I want to dedicate to my loved ones and care for more than myself. That’s why I win the DSDS 2022.
