How did it feel to perform your song with the Gewandhaus Children’s Choir between the airplanes and in the huge sorting facility?
"It was an indescribable feeling! To be honest, I felt like I was in a Hollywood film – I think the kids felt the same way. Of course I realize that not everyone gets to experience something like that, which makes me all the more proud and grateful that I could be part of this real-life adventure. And to do it with so many great kids, who had just as much fun with the music and project as I did! Even just standing out on the tarmac was super exciting – and then we were allowed to perform there too! Amazing."
Which scene was the most spectacular for you?
"The most spectacular for me was definitely the singing scene in front of the airplane. Singing “Forever Me” with the kids there was incredibly special – magical – and I remember clearly the goosebumps I had in that moment. But really all the scenes with the kids were my favorite."
Why did you say ‘Yes’ right away to the idea of performing with the Gewandhaus Children’s Choir?
"The first time I heard the idea I was immediately ‘all in’. When I was younger I loved singing in the school choir and to this day I’m a big fan of choral music. So the chance to record one of my songs with a choir was a big honor for me – and a little dream come true."
What about working with the kids and the DHL team was most fun for you?
"The “Forever Me” project is among my favorite music projects. And one reason for that is all the wonderful people I was able to work with. I just enjoyed working with the DHL team so much and am very grateful for this experience. The best part about working with the kids was their joy of music and the fun they had with the filming. Despite the many takes and hours of work, they never stopped smiling and having fun – and that’s what makes this project so special for me."
