Yvonne Catterfeld (born 2 December 1979) is a German singer, songwriter, actress and TV host. Born and raised in Erfurt, Thuringia, she later moved to Leipzig to pursue her music career on the University of Music and Theatre. In 2000, she participated in the debut season of the singing competition series Stimme 2000, where she came in second place. Catterfeld subsequently signed a recording deal with Hansa Records, which released her debut single "Bum" in 2001. The same year, she was propelled to stardom when she was cast in a main role in the German soap opera Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten . In 2003, Catterfeld made her musical breakthrough when her fifth single, "Für dich", became an international number-one hit and produced the equally successful album Meine Welt .

Erfurt Place in Thuringia, Germany

Erfurt is the capital and largest city in the state of Thuringia, central Germany.

Thuringia State in Germany

Thuringia, officially the Free State of Thuringia, is a state of Germany.

Leipzig Place in Saxony, Germany

Leipzig is the most populous city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany. With a population of 581,980 inhabitants as of 2017 it is Germany's tenth most populous city. Leipzig is located about 160 kilometres (99 mi) southwest of Berlin at the confluence of the White Elster, Pleiße and Parthe rivers at the southern end of the North German Plain.


Catterfeld continued booking success with follow-up albums Farben meiner Welt (2004) and Unterwegs (2005), which spawned the hit singles "Du hast mein Herz gebrochen" and "Glaub an mich". Following her departure from GZSZ and a starring role in the short-living telenovela Sophie – Braut wider Willen , she released her fourth album Aura , which was less successful commercially and led to a decline in her musical career. She transitioned to Sony Music, and after an unsuccessful period, returned to the top of music charts with the reissue of her sixth album Lieber so (2013), when she appeared in the second season of Sing meinen Song - Das Tauschkonzert , the German version of the series The Best Singers .

A telenovela is a type of limited-run television serial drama or soap opera produced primarily in Latin America. The word combines tele, short for televisión or televisão, and novela, a Spanish and Portuguese word for "novel". Similar genres around the world include teleserye (Philippines), téléroman, or simply dramas. In Spain, they are also called culebrones because of the convoluted plots.

Throughout a career spanning 15 years, Catterfeld has sold over 800,000 records as a solo artist, making her one of the best-selling German music artists in the early 2000s. [1] Aside from her commercial accomplishments, her work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including a Bambi Award, a Goldene Stimmgabel, and an ECHO Award. An established actress, she has appeared in several international television and theatrical films, including Keinohrhasen (2007), The Promise (2011), and Beauty and the Beast (2014). In 2016, she became a coach on the German television series The Voice of Germany .

Bambi Award German TV and movie award

The Bambi, often simply called the Bambi Award and stylised as BAMBI, are presented annually by Hubert Burda Media to recognize excellence in international media and television, awarded to personalities in the media, arts, culture, sports and other fields "with vision and creativity who affected and inspired the German public that year," both domestic and foreign. First held in 1948, they are the oldest media awards in Germany. The award is named after Felix Salten's book Bambi, A Life in the Woods and its statuettes are in the shape of the novel's titular fawn character. They were originally made of porcelain, until 1958 when the organizers switched to using gold, with the casting done by the art casting workshop of Ernst Strassacker in Süßen.

The Goldene Stimmgabel is an annual prize awarded within the German music scene.

A television film is a feature-length motion picture that is produced and originally distributed by or to, a television network, in contrast to theatrical films, which are made explicitly for initial showing in movie theaters.

Early life

Catterfeld was born and raised in Erfurt, Thuringia, then part of East Germany. [2] Her father, Jürgen Catterfeld, is a foreman; her mother, Annemarie Catterfeld, is a teacher. [2] A former athlete, Catterfeld started playing the piano and the flute at the age of 15, simultaneously taking her first dance and vocal lessons. [2] After her high school graduation from Albert-Schweitzer-Gymnasium in Erfurt, she relocated to Leipzig to study pop and jazz at the Felix Mendelssohn College of Music and Theatre for two years. [3] In 1998, her seven-song debut release, entitled KIV, hit the market but found little to no recognition in the music industry. [3]

East Germany former communist country, 1949-1990

East Germany, officially the German Democratic Republic, was a country that existed from 1949 to 1990, when the eastern portion of Germany was part of the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War. It described itself as a socialist "workers' and peasants' state", and the territory was administered and occupied by Soviet forces at the end of World War II — the Soviet Occupation Zone of the Potsdam Agreement, bounded on the east by the Oder–Neisse line. The Soviet zone surrounded West Berlin but did not include it; as a result, West Berlin remained outside the jurisdiction of the GDR.

Athlete person who participates regularly in a sport

An athlete is a person who competes in one or more sports that involve physical strength, speed or endurance. The application of the term to those who participate in other activities, such as horse riding or driving, is somewhat controversial.

Pop music is a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid-1950s. The terms "popular music" and "pop music" are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music that is popular and includes many diverse styles. "Pop" and "rock" were roughly synonymous terms until the late 1960s, when they became increasingly differentiated from each other.



After her studies in Leipzig, Catterfeld participated in the second season of the MDR singing competition series Stimme 2000, where she performed under her short-living pseudonym Vivianne. [4] Her self-written song "Whenever You Need a Friend" appeared on the show's promotional album Stimme 2000 – Die Finalisten. [5] A critics' favorite, she finished second in the competition, losing to duo UC, consisting of singers Danny Heims and Kathrin Jantke, both of whom failed to sign a recording deal after the final show. [4] Catterfeld, on the other hand, earned a management and recording contract with BMG sub-label Hansa Music by Stimme 2000 jury member and label boss Thomas Stein. [4]

Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk is the public broadcaster for the federal states of Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. Established in January 1991, its headquarters are in Leipzig, with regional studios in Dresden, Erfurt and Magdeburg. MDR is a member of the ARD consortium of public broadcasters in Germany.

Bertelsmann Music Group record label company

Bertelsmann Music Group was a division of German media company Bertelsmann before its completion of sale of the majority of its assets to Japan's Sony Corporation of America on 1 October 2008. Although it was established in 1987, the music company was formed as RCA/Ariola International in 1984 as a joint venture to combine the music label activities of RCA Corporation's RCA Records division and Bertelsmann's Ariola Records and its associated labels which include Arista Records. It consisted of the BMG Music Publishing company, the world's third largest music publisher and the world's largest independent music publisher, and the 50% share of the joint venture with Sony Music Entertainment, which established the German American Sony BMG Music Entertainment from 2004 to 2008.

Hansa Records was a record label founded in the 1960s based in West Berlin, West Germany.

In 2001, Hansa released Catterfeld's first single "Bum", a re-written German uptempo version of British girl group All Saints's 1998 hit single "Never Ever", promoting her under her surname only. [6] The song failed to chart however. [7] In support of her musical ambitions, she auditioned for a supporting role in the long-running RTL Television soap opera Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten the same year. Though generally unenthusiastic about an acting career at the time, Catterfeld accepted RTL's offer to join the cast as character Julia Blum. She first appeared on-screen in episode 2316, broadcast on September 20, 2001. [7] Two months later, her next single "Komm zurück zu mir", a pop soul ballad, was released. [8] A significant shift from the EDM-influenced sound of her debut single, it reached number 76 on the German Singles Chart. [9] In 2002, Catterfeld was handpicked by musician Udo Lindenberg to appear on his 33rd album Atlantic Affairs. [10] She recorded vocals for two songs on the album, which was later re-worked into a revue in which Catterfeld co-starred. [10] Two further singles released by Catterfeld, "Niemand sonst" and "Gefühle", both reached the top forty of the German Singles Chart in 2002. [9]

All Saints (group) all-female band

All Saints are a British-Canadian pop girl group formed in 1993. They were founded as All Saints by members Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis and Simone Rainford. The group struggled to find commercial success upon being signed to ZTT Records and were dropped by the label shortly after Rainford left the group. In 1996, the group were joined by sisters Nicole and Natalie Appleton and signed to London Records under their shortened name.

Never Ever (All Saints song) 1997 single by All Saints

"Never Ever" is a song by British-Canadian girl group All Saints. Written by All Saints member Shaznay Lewis along with co-writers Robert Jazayeri and Sean Mather, using the tune from the famous British folk song “Amazing Grace”, and produced by Cameron McVey and Magnus Fiennes, it was released on 10 November 1997 as the second single from their debut album, All Saints (1997). The song later appeared on their compilations All Hits (2001), Pure Shores: The Very Best of All Saints (2010) and their remix compilation The Remix Album (1998). Lyrically, the song talks about the girls feeling their first expressions after a sudden break-up, where the girls query what they did wrong in the relationship.

In March 2003, "Für dich" was released. Composed by Dieter Bohlen and re-written for Catterfeld, the pop ballad was heavily promoted on GZSZ. [11] Upon its release it became an instant success, reaching the top of charts in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. [12] One of the best-selling singles of 2003, it sold 250,000 copies within three days and was certified platinum by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI). [13] In May 2003, Catterfeld's debut album Meine Welt was released. A collection of pop songs and soul ballads with elements of contemporary R&B and dance, it debuted on top of the German Albums Chart and reached the top five in Austria and Switzerland, eventually going platinum. [14] In October 2003, Mariah Carey invited Catterfeld to be the opening act for the German leg of her Charmbracelet World Tour in Hamburg, Berlin, and Munich. [15] Also in 2003, Catterfeld hosted the MDR singing competition Lucky Star 2003, [16] and became a regular co-host on the music event series The Dome . [17]


In 2004, Catterfeld voiced angelfish Angie in the German version of DreamWorks' computer-animated comedy film Shark Tale . [18] "Du hast mein Herz gebrochen", the lead single from her second album, was released in January 2004 and became another number-one success for Catterfeld. [9] Parent album Farben meiner Welt , was released two months later and reached the top ten on the charts. [14] While not as commercially successful as its predecessor, it produced two further singles, both of which entered the top twenty and top thirty, respectively. [9] After several breaks from filming, in late 2004, Catterfeld announced that she would permanently leave Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten to concentrate on her music career. Her last appearance was broadcast on February 15, 2005. [11]

In March 2005, Unterwegs , Catterfeld's third album, was released. It debuted at number one the German Albums Chart and produced the top five single "Glaub an mich". [14] Unterwegs was later certified gold by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI). [14] Following its release, Catterfeld ended her management contract with longtime mentor Veronika Jarzombek. [19] In November of the same year, she began starring as fictional central character Countess Sophie von Ahlen in the historical telenovela Sophie – Braut wider Willen . Broadcast to uneven ratings on Das Erste, the series was cancelled in March 2006 after 65 episodes only. [20]

In October 2006, the singer released her fourth studio album, Aura . [14] Mousse T., Walter Afanasieff, and Max Herre contributed to the project which took Catterfeld's work further into the R&B genre and introduced an adult contemporary edge to her pop sound. [21] Upon its release, Aura debuted and peaked at number ten on the German Albums Chart, marking her lowest-charting album yet. [14] While lead single "Erinner mich, dich zu vergessen" became her fourth top ten hit, the album's second and final single "Die Zeit ist reif" failed to reach the upper half of the German Singles Chart. [9] In November, Catterfeld filmed the RTL television film Das Geheimnis des Königssees, a thriller inspired by English author Daphne du Maurier's 1938 novel Rebecca . [22] The film was not released until 2008. [22]

In 2007, she co-starred with Stephan Luca in the romantic comedy Wenn Liebe doch so einfach wär. The television film garnered strong ratings upon its premiere, [23] but received mixed to negative reviews from critics. [24] The same year, Catterfeld made a cameo appearance as herself in Til Schweiger's Rabbit Without Ears , which became a surprise box-office hit and has since ranked among the most successful German films in Germany since the beginning of the audience census in 1968. [25] [26] In 2008, Catterfeld had a supporting role in comedy film U-900, a big screen parody of Wolfgang Petersen's epic war film Das Boot (1981). The satire was universally panned by critics. [27]


Catterfeld's first project of 2009 was the police thriller Schatten der Gerechtigkeit co-starring Richy Müller. The film was well received by critics. [28] Vulkan, a two-part disaster film about volcanic caldera lake Laacher See, was broadcast to generally mixed reviews from critics. [29] It was awarded a German Television Award the following year. [29] Engel sucht Liebe, a Christmas comedy film, inspired by Wim Wenders's Wings of Desire (1987), was broadcast to moderate ratings. [30] Also in 2009, Catterfeld had a minor role in Lilly the Witch: The Dragon and the Magic Book , a children's film directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky, and again played herself in Til Schweiger's Rabbit Without Ears 2 . Because of her resemblance to actress Romy Schneider, she had also been cast to play the title role in the Warner Bros. film Eine Frau wie Romy. [31] [32] The project was cancelled in July 2009. [33]

In March 2010, Catterfeld released her fifth album Blau im Blau on Columbia Records. Taking Catterfeld's work further toward an adult audience, it was recorded with smaller group of musicians. A moderate commercial success, Blau im Blau reached number 37 on the German Albums Chart. [14] Its same-title lead single, the only track lifted from the album, failed to peak within the top fifty of the German Singles Chart. [9] Also in 2010, Catterfeld appeared in the Sat.1 television film Die Frau des Schläfers, in which she played a call centre operator, whose son is abducted by his Iran father. The drama was broadcast to strong ratings. [34] Catterfeld portrayed a soap opera actress in Dani Levy's comedy film Das Leben ist zu lang, which received a theatrical release in late 2010. The project garnered largely mixed reviews by critics, who called it "enjoyable and exhausting at once." [35]

In 2011, the compilation album The Best of Yvonne Catterfeld – Von Anfang bis jetzt was released. The same year, Catterfeld had a role in the Channel 4 period mini series The Promise , written and directed by Peter Kosminsky. The serial praised by critics, [36] and earned nominations for both the British Academy Television Awards 2011 and the Royal Television Society Programme Awards 2011 in the category of best drama serial. [37] [38] Also in 2011, she starred as Lotte Hass alongside Benjamin Sadler in the film Das Mädchen auf dem Meeresgrund about the first dive of Austrian biologist and diving pioneer Hans Hass in 1950. Broadcast in 2011 on ZDF and ORF, it became a rating success and earned Catterfeld favorable reviews for her performance. [39] Catterfeld reunited with Stephan Luca for Am Ende die Hoffnung (2010), a romantic drama revolving around German submarine U-864 in World War II. Filmed in Berlin and Norway, the television film became a mediocre rating success for its network. [40]

Catterfeld's only project of 2012 was Plötzlich 70!. A fantasy comedy about a young woman who ages to retirement age overnight, the actress had to go through four hours of make-up each day to fit the character. Upon its broadcast, the film became a lukewarm critical and commercial success. [41] The following year, Catterfeld appeared in Sputnik (2013), a children's film set days before the fall of the Berlin Wall. It received a positive reception from critics. [42] She had bigger roles in the ZDF musical film Nur eine Nacht opposite Pasquale Aleardi and the ensemble disaster film Helden – Wenn dein Land dich braucht. While the former became a critical and commercial flop, [43] Helden earned strong ratings though it was mostly panned by critics. [44] In November 2013, Catterfeld's sixth album Lieber so was released. It debuted at number twenty-one on the German Albums Chart, marking her sixth consecutive top forty entry. [14]


Catterfeld rejected the offer to appear in Fast & Furious 6 (2013) to portray a princess in the Franco-German romantic film Beauty and the Beast starring Léa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel. [45] The film was screened out of competition at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, [46] and released to positive reviews, becoming a box office success. It was nominated for the People's Choice Award for Best European Film at the 27th European Film Awards, [47] [48] and received three nominations at the 40th César Awards. [49] [50] Also in 2014, Catterfeld starred in the lead role of Amelia in the television films Zwischen Himmel und hier and Mein ganzes halbes Leben, which she had filmed back-to-back in Ireland the year before. [51] Based on a treatment by Irish novelist Cecelia Ahern, the films were broadcast to strong ratings as part of ZDF's Herzkino series. [52] She also appeared in the film adaptation of Dora Heldt's 2013 novel Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Sie haben gewonnen!, which became another commercial success, [53] and had a minor role in the comedy film Bocksprünge. [54]

In mid-2015, Catterfeld participated in the second season of the reality television series Sing meinen Song - Das Tauschkonzert , the German version of the series The Best Singers . Her appearance on the show was accompanied by the re-release of Lieber so, which eventually surpassed its initial peak and reached number eight on the German Albums Chart, becoming her highest-charting album in a decade. [14] Her rendition of Andreas Bourani's song "Hey" reached the top twenty in Germany based on downloads alone and became highest-charting release in years. [55] In August, Catterfeld represented Thuringia in the Bundesvision Song Contest 2015 with her single "Lieber so", placing third in the contest with 114 points. [56] [57]

Catterfeld starred alongside Eliza Bennett, Rosemary Harris, and Matthew Macfadyen in the international co-production The von Trapp Family: A Life of Music , released in November 2015. A remake of the 1956 German film that in turn inspired the Broadway musical The Sound of Music (1959) and the 1965 film of the same name, she plays Maria von Trapp, the stepmother and matriarch of the Trapp Family Singers. Critics dismissed the film as "clichéd heimatfilm". [58] Catterfeld is next set to appear in mini series based on British author Ken Follett's 1993 novel A Dangerous Fortune . [59]
