Sing mit Heino!
Germany has a grand tradition of pop stars, many of which are considered "Schlager" (hit-makers). Typically these are the singers who croon more traditional folky pop, but a Schlager can be anyone who sings a song that worms its way into the national ear.

Schlagerman presents a mash-up of beloved German tunes from pop history, told and sung by JJ Jones, accompanied by Josef der Erste, in a delightful mix of English and German.
Songs include:
99 Luftballoons
Where Have All the Flowers Gone?
Mack the Knife
Du Hasst
Rock Me Amadeus
The Model

The performance is perfect for  high school and university students, as well as German-American gatherings of any kind.
