I love music! I think it is the deepest language that everybody can understand because it is a godly
language. It speaks to hearts and it can make people free.
The guitar, the piano, a little bit of drums, and the harmonica like [Bob] Dylan.
I went to a Catholic school and every week the students had to visit the
school church - a very serious place. There I was, singing for the first time
in front of my class, the nuns, and my teachers!
Last year, my manager came to the GMA week and gave my album to some record labels. A few months later,
some labels invited us to come to Nashville and I played showcases for them. Inpop Records really liked
my music, and I really liked Inpop Records.
"King I Love" is one of my favorites. It's the story of my hero... how He lived on earth,
how He died, then rose again - about His love that set me free.
Sarah: It says that Love is not for sale. Sometimes the music industry forgets that
and they treat artists like a commodity - like a product. [They're] only thinking of their profit.
I went through that a few years ago.
Jesus is pure and He is true... and nothing in this life makes sense without
Him. Many times I am tired about me, I struggle and I fail day by day. I want to be transformed
into the image of Jesus. That is my biggest goal.
Larry Norman influenced me a lot when I started making music, the early U2
records, a woman named Chi Coltrane and Bob Dylan.
One of my most favorite songwriters is Larry Norman. "I Wish We´d All Been Ready" is a hit.
I´m sure that people will listen to that song even in heaven.
I would love to make a record with Daniel Lanois - an awesome producer who worked with Emmylou Harris,
U2 and Bob Dylan.
Yes,I will join Petra on their Farwell Tour through Amerika and Canada in
September and October and in August (today!). I will go back to Germany for a few weeks to play
some concerts there. One of the highlights will probably be the World Youth Day in
Koeln. More than one million people will join that event. Maybe I could shake hands with the Pope?
In the south of Germany, there are a lot of beautiful little cities with very
old houses built in the Middle Ages - castles in the hills. In the north, where
I come from, is the ocean with its nice fisher villages. Hamburg is a really cool city to go to
with lots of nice shops, art museums, and great restaurants (if you like fish).
Fresh vegetables (you can buy it directly from the farmers) and salads.
And I love German chocolate. For sure you have heard about the Bratwurst and Schnitzel. It´s not my
favorite food, but it is also really good!
This industry is much bigger than the music industry in Germany. Many more artists.
A lot of my friends and my family live in Germany. I first thought that I could not make it without
them, being that they're so far away, but as we live in the modern age, we mail a lot and talk for
hours on the phone.
The people and the countyside are my favorite things here. The last 5 weeks I had the opportunity to
travel a lot. Every week in another state at another festival. And I am overwhelmed by the beauty of
this country and also very pleased by the all the cool and friendly people that I met.
The traffic over here is a bit too much for me, though. In Germany, I used to ride my bike a lot
from one city to the other.
My parents who always stood beside me and teached me a lot about music and faith.
King David inspires me in his love to God.
That his mercy is his present to me.
Jesus, when He prayed to his father: "Make them pure and holy by teaching them your words of truth.
As you sent me into the world. I am sending them. And I give my myself entirely to you so they also
might be entirely yours." John 18, 17-19. Because it shows the heart of Jesus, how much he loves us,
and how me he cares about us. It`s his call to us that we should act like him.
Yeah, Thanks a lot for letting me speak about my life! LOVE to everybody from JESUSfreakHIDEOUT.com
and everyone who is reading this interview. Let your light shine!
