Germany – Norbert Berger alias Bert, the male part of the German schlager duo Cindy&Bert has died at the age of 66. Cindy&Bert represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 in Brighton with the song Sommermelodie and came 14th (and thus shared last). The husband and wife – duo went on to become one of the most successful schlager acts in Germany. Especially their hit Immer Wieder Sonntags has become amodern classic. Cindy&Bert went seperate ways in the 80s and got a divorce, but since 1994 they performed together again.
Our condolences go to Berger’s family and friends and his singing partner. Here is their Eurovision entry:
