Andrea Berg is one of the biggest-selling German pop divas of her generation, winning four ECHO awards for her commercial prowess. Born January 28, 1966, in Krefeld, Berg was discovered in 1992 by producer/Svengali Eugen Römer, who ushered her into the studio within a week of signing. Her debut LP, Du Bist Frei, quickly followed, and while sales were poor, the follow-up, Gefühle, proved a massive hit, led by the smash single "Die Gefühle Haben Schweigepflicht." The 1997 release Träume Lügen Nicht solidified Berg's chart success, and after a hiatus heralded by the impending birth of her first child, she resurfaced in 1999 with Weil Ich Verliebt Bin. Two years later, Berg issued her first Best Of collection, a blockbuster hit that spent more than four consecutive years on the German charts and earned her the first of her ECHO prizes. Her next studio LP, Machtlos, also reached number one upon its mid-2003 release. In 2006, Berg delivered another chart-topper in the form of Splitternackt and in 2008 released her first holiday-themed album Dezember Nacht. Beginning with 2009's Zwischen Himmel & Erde, every one of Berg's albums (2010's Schwerelos, 2011's Abenteuer, and 2013's Atlantis) would go straight to number one on the German charts. ~ Jason Ankeny & Timothy Monger, Rovi
