Ulla Wiesner

Biography

Ulla Wiesner was active from 1963 to 2002 as a singer. In 1965, she represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest, with her song, "Paradies, wo bist du?" (Paradise, where are you?). It scored zero points along with three other countries out of the fifteen which entered in total.

Past the Eurovision Song Contest, of which the zero point result has hurt her solo career before it even fully began, she was mainly active as chorister, firstly at the G√ľnter-Kallmann-Chorus and later on at the very famous Botho-Lucas-Chorus, where she stayed as chorister as main profession for 30 years, notably for their musical accompaniment on the german TV show Musik ist Trumpf. Furthermore, there are several songs existing in the Brilliant-Musik archives, which was founded by Werner Tautz, who wrote several songs for Ulla Wiesner, together with Heinz Kiessling and Hans Gerig.

Together with Addy Flor and his Orchestra, Ulla Wiesner released an album called Twilight Mood in 1970. As one of Germanys busiest studio singers, she was assigned as backing vocalist for many popoular artists, including Triumvirats album Illusions on a Double Dimple.

Since then, notable singles of hers include titles such as "Abends kommen die Sterne" (In the evening the stars appear), "Wenn dieser Tag zu Ende geht" (When this day comes to an end) and "Charade".
