“Sing my song” continues

Thinking outside the box is not uncommon, especially in music. For many, James Blunt is “the cuddly singer” and Mariah Carey is “the pop diva”. In the Vox music show “Sing my song – the exchange concert” such drawers are regularly torn out of the record cabinet. The format enters its eleventh season on Tuesday (8:15 p.m.).

The concept is simple and hasn’t changed significantly since it started exactly ten years ago: music stars meet in a relaxed atmosphere in South Africa and play each other’s songs in their own unique style. This causes genres such as rock, pop or metal to blur. This time there are soul singer Joy Denalane, rapper Eko Fresh, Broilers frontman Sammy Amara, pop singer Emilio, songwriter Tim Bendzko and Juli frontwoman Eva Briegel.

The first episode is dedicated to the 45-year-old. Their band Juli from Giessen in Hesse provided many hits, especially in the 2000s, and made German pop-rock popular on the radio. Host Johannes Oerding (42) interprets her most famous song “Perfekte Welle” right at the beginning as a modern electro dance number.

The first tears of the evening – the format is known for its emotional moments – are caused by Eko Fresh, who rewrites the ballad “In our hands” and dedicates it to his seven-year-old son. Later, Tim Bendzko and the show band present the catchy tune “Geile Zeit” as a casual jazz song, while punk rocker Samy Amara creates a party atmosphere with “Fette Wilde Jahr” and his electric guitar.

With the award-winning music show, which was recorded in a villa near Cape Town in February, the small private broadcaster from Cologne continues to achieve decent ratings. The show is an excellent promotional stage for the musicians in several ways.

They can show themselves musically diverse, present themselves to a completely different audience (a Broilers fan probably won’t go to a Tim Bendzko concert so quickly) and get a lot of air time to talk about their career, their life and their music catalog. After each episode, Vox also shows a longer documentary about the star of the evening.

For Berliner Bendzko, who became known in 2011 with “Just Save the World for a Short Time,” the recording was “a very special experience,” as he told the German Press Agency. “When such seasoned musicians take so much time and put so much love into these songs, it gets to you and then you think: It wasn’t all just luck and chance, but you’ve done something right .”

In the coming weeks, Bendzko (drawer: “pop poet”) will not only dare to do a jazz version, but also a punk number by the Broilers. “That had a lot of power for me.” He also uses the stage, like others, to present new music (“Come on”) – this also makes “Sing my Song” a lucrative platform for the participants. By the way, this also includes – attention, drawer – “old rocker” Peter Maffay. The 74-year-old will appear as a special guest in one of the upcoming episodes.
