15 February – Those who experience love, will be immortal

Do you ever think history repeats itself, and there’s nothing original anymore? In the Eurovision context, how many songs have been called ‘Shine’ for example. Or ‘Angel?

In 2001, it wasn’t duplicated song titles, it was duplicated singer names We has not one, but two singers called Michelle. There may have been a bit of talk between them over who, if any, had to change their stage name. In the event, neither did, and today’s birthday girl Michelle (née Tanja Gisela Hewer) proudly sang for Germany and placed eighth. She may not have won the whole shebang, but she won the battle of the Michelles.

Michelle is 51 today.

Frohe Geburtstag, Michelle!
