In retrospect, this year’s “Sing mein Song” participant, who “grew up as a carnivore”, says about himself: “I was a complete hone, I was a complete idiot all the time. I lived wrong. That came pretty suddenly. It’s like quitting smoking or drinking. Then you suddenly realize: It is not good for me or others and it doesn’t make it smarter either. ”

“I didn’t know anyone before”

In today’s episode of “Sing My Song – The Exchange Concert”, the songs by Jan Plewka take center stage. “It is an incredibly great honor that you get there,” said 49-year-old Plewka in the interview.

We all met for the first time – except for Paddy – at the airport and then got on the bus together and were driven to the accommodation for two hours. It was like we had known each other for centuries. Everything was actually clear from the start. ”
