Helene Fischer (born 5 August 1984) is a Soviet Union-born German singer, entertainer, television presenter and actress. Since her debut in 2005 she has won numerous awards, including sixteen Echo awards, four "Die Krone der Volksmusik" awards and two Bambi awards.

Personal life

Helene Fischer was born in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, (then the Soviet Union) to Peter and Marina Fischer. Her father worked as a physical education teacher and her mother as an engineer. Her paternal grandparents were Volga Germans who were among those sent to forced settlements in Kazakhstan and Siberia. In 1988, at the age of four, she emigrated with her parents and her six-year older sister to Wöllstein, Rhineland-Palatine, West Germany.

After graduating from school, Helene Fischer attended the Frankfurt Stage & Musical School for three years, where she studied singing and acting. During this time, Helene performed on stage at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, as well as on the stage of the Volkstheater Frankfurt. Since May 2008 she has been dating Florian Silbereisen. In October 2011 Fischer was presented with her own wax figure in the Berlin Madame Tussauds museum.


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

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

She has won sixteen "Echo" awards, the "Goldene Henne" award six times, and the "Krone der Volksmusik" prize four 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 could be called "Country music" although musically quite different.

Her fanbase extends beyond Germany, Austria and Switzerland to Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, the United Kingdom, Finland and the United States.

She released her first English album, "The English Ones", on 7 June 2010. The album was produced by Jean Frankfurter, a German producer, composer and arranger for 40 years. On singing in English, Fischer commented: "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 4 October 2013 she released her album "Farbenspiel" in Germany. She played a tour in 2014 and a big stadium tour in 2015. 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 in the last 10 years. After selling over 2,000,000 copies of her last album, a new album was announced for May 2017 which has already been pre ordered 400,000 times.
