Christina Klein as Lafee

  Christina Klein (born December 9, 1990), better known by her stage name LaFee, is a German singer/songwriter who has sold more than one million records worldwide. She is most famous in mainland Europe, particularly in German-speaking countries. LaFee’s first single Virus was released in 2006 from her debut album LaFee. Since the start of her career LaFee was supported by the magazine Bravo and the music channel VIVA. Virus reached fourteen on both the German and Austrian singles chart and her second single, Prinzesschen (Little princess), reached rank 11 in the German charts. Was ist das (What is that) and Mitternacht (Midnight) were charted in the German and Austrian charts, too. Her first English album, Shut Up, was released in 2008. It includes songs from the album LaFee and Jetzt erst recht in English. The first single Shut Up is the English version of Heul Doch. The single Shut Up reached number 93 in the German singles chart, which was the lowest chart entry by LaFee. The album, however, with more than 100,000 copies at the time was also the weakest LaFee album. The album reached #21 the German albums chart at #31 on the Austrian albums chart. The song Shut up was first performed on May 30, 2008, at the music festival The Dome. LaFee’s first single, Ring frei (Clear the ring), from her fourth studio album, Ring frei, was released on November 21, 2008 and reached #22 in Germany. The album Ring frei was released in Germany on January 2, 2009 and reached #6 on the German albums chart, #21 on the Swiss albums chart and #5 on the Austrian albums chart. The album has also received gold status in Austria and has worldwide more than 100,000 sales. She went on a tour in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2009. After the promotion of the tour she took a break for the first time briefly. On June 4, 2012, Christina presented the new single Ich bin (I Am) at the German show The Dome. It was available on June 10, 2012, and EMI has stated on its official site that the new album Frei was released on July 1, 2012. In an interview with the German magazine Bild, the singer said that this new album was really important to her because she has changed a lot since her previous album. She also explained the reasons behind this break; she said that she was tired of always being away from her home and her friends. She was just a teenager when she began her career and had grown up so fast, without time to think whether she had missed something or not. She was always being told what to do and need to be herself, not mentioning all the gossip that had run between her and her boyfriends. She admitted she could think about nothing but sleeping for days. So she had split with her old team, her old band and her old manager and had asked her label to change her contract and she was lucky because they agreed. Finally, she stated that now she’s ready to come back with new songs (she wrote three songs by herself and co-wrote another two), themes closer to her like love and growing up with a new, more mature look.
