Katrin Weber begeistert als stimmgewaltige Sängerin und wunderbar wandelbare Kabarettistin.
Man nimmt ihr die Trude Herr genauso bedenkenlos ab wie die Nana Mouskouri. Wobei da sogar eine gewisse äußerliche Ähnlichkeit zu der griechischen Sängerin besteht, sobald sich Katrin Weber die dicke, schwarze Brille aufsetzt. Natürlich fällt ihr dazu auch gleich der richtige Text ein, angelehnt an Mouskouris bekannten Titel:
Aus „Weiße Rosen aus Athen“ macht sie kurzerhand „Schwarze Brillen machen schön“ .
Es fällt schwer das „Sächsische Bühnenwunder“ aus Plauen zu beschreiben. Man muss sie einfach selbst gesehen und gehört haben. Continue reading “Katrin Weber”

What is a superstar? Could it be that this term has recently been worn out with the help of the shows “Pop Idol” or the german counterpart “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”?
Let’s take a look at the lexicon: The term “super” comes from Latin and means colloquially:

“Excellent” – “very good” – hard to beat “-” first class “-” great “…
Well? … does he notice something?
A superstar was once an artist who was very, very clearly lifted from the enormous mass of his colleagues. There were very few superstars because they were much, much better and more successful than the others. The term “superstar” is a superlative, the highest level of increase. The superstar is well above average and is unbeatable.
So – and now we come from theory to practice: Currently, if you can believe because the media, Simon Cowell and Dieter Bohlen, tons of young superstars gymnastics on British, German and other stages around. They can all sing pretty, have talent and are even attractive. They mainly sing songs from other artists. They do not write anything of their own. Most do not even know an instrument! They imitate cheekily others and call themselves anyway “superstar”?!
