Deutsche Fassung (English version below)
Verrückt, vor 8 Jahren noch jede Pause auf dem Afnorth Schulhof am Fussball spielen und der große Traum Fussballprofi zu werden – heute auf der The Voice of Germany Bühne, als Musiker.

Ich fing vor drei Jahren mit Musik an, entwickelte eine Leidenschaft dafür, übte fleißig und schickte dieses Jahr meine Bewerbung für diese Musikshow ab, was daraus wurde ist einfach atemberaubend und mir fehlen noch immer die Worte. In der Blind Audition sind 4 Stühle prominenter Musiker umgedreht, nur anhand der Stimme entscheiden sie, ob sie das Talent in ihr Team holen wollen oder nicht. Ziel ist es also, dass sich mindestens ein Stuhl umdreht – als sich bei mir alle 4 umgedreht hatten, nachdem ich von meinem größten Vorbild Eminem den Song Lose yourself performte, war ich sprachlos.

Das Video hat bei youtube mittlerweile 1,7 Millionen Clicks und ich glaube nach wie vor, dass youtube da einen Zahlendreher hat 🙂

Nun geht die Reise also weiter, ALLE…wirklich alle sind super motiviert, das komplette Team hat Lust auf diese Show und meine “Kiste der Erfahrungen” wird immer voller =)

Wie gesagt, damals war Fussball mein Ein und Alles, die Zeit an der AIS, mit dem Schulteam und meinen Freunden war die beste Zeit meines Lebens, was ich niemals vergessen werde..

English Version
I cannot believe it, only 8 years ago I was playing soccer on the playground of AFNORTH International School, dreaming to become a soccer pro, and today: on stage of “The Voice of Germany”, as a MUSICIAN!

Three years ago I started singing, and it became a passion, practiced a lot and this year I have sent my application for this music event. What became of this audition is just amazing. In the “blind auditions” there are 4 chairs with great musicians, and just by hearing the voice of the participants, they decide wether or not they take me on their team or not. I was really surprised, when not only ONE chair but FOUR chairs of the musicians turned forward to me!

The Youtube video already reached 1.7 Million clicks. The journey continues and EVERYONE is super motivated, and I am getting more experienced in this every day! Like I said: before soccer was my everything, the days at AIS, the school team and my friends, it was the best time of my life, which I will never forget!
