Irish singer Maite Star Kelly was born on December 4, 1979 as the second youngest child of the famous Kelly Family. She is the only one of the twelve children who was born in Germany. In her youth she worked as a singer in the family band. After their dissolution, she started a career as a solo and musical artist. Today she is particularly successful in this genre in the hit world. In 2005 she married the model Florent Michel Raimond, with whom she subsequently had three children. The marriage was canceled in 2018.
Maite Star Kelly was born on December 4, 1979 in Berlin, the eleventh of twelve children. The child was named after her brother’s wife. With her family of street musicians, Maite Kelly’s childhood was marked by travel. The Kelly family toured from place to place by family bus until they made their breakthrough with the 1994 album “Over the Hump”. The bus has now been exchanged for a 13 million mark castle in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Maite Kelly started her career as a singer in her childhood. After all, she was born into a family of musicians and had early success with the Kelly Family. In 1994 the family released the album “Over the Hump”, which climbed to number one in the German charts and thus sealed the million-dollar success of the former street musicians. After the separation of the siblings and the end of their joint career, Maite Kelly started a solo career and made a name for herself particularly in the Schlager area, where she is still one of the best-known greats of the scene.
In addition to her career as a singer, Maite Kelly also built up a second mainstay as an actress. For example, she can be seen in the film “Wuff” as a crazy cat owner. Her entrepreneurial activity, however, is in the area of the natural cosmetics brand Aroma Gardens, which she sells together with her ex-husband. The singer has also made a name for herself in the fashion sector. She designed her own fashion collection for Bonprix. Maite Kelly also appeared as a writer with her children’s book “Die kleine Hummel Bommel und die Zeit”.
In addition to numerous prizes and awards from childhood, Maite Kelly also succeeded in ascending as a solo artist to hit heaven. If her hit “Sieben Leben für dich” was an outstanding success, she succeeded again with “Die Liebe siegt anyway”. In 2017, Maite Kelly was named Schlager Sensation of the Year for the smago! Award’s first album. In 2019 she received the same price for “The new reference album in the hit” for her album “Love wins anyway”. The SWR declared Maite Kelly 2019’s go-ahead of the year.
Already in 2012 she received the Order of Merit of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia for her services as an artist and socially committed citizen. In 2015 she was awarded the LovelyBooks Reader’s Prize for her children’s book in the children’s books category.
Again and again there are wise quotes by Maite Kelly, which do not leave a certain socio-critical attitude of the artist undiscovered and also do not deny a certain marketing-technical talent. For example, on the Schlagerplanet platform, she said: “Men move things, women move hearts.”
Maite Kelly, on the other hand, considers artists to be particularly susceptible to arrogance and says: “Megalomania is unfortunately the shadow of every artist.”
For Maite Kelly, the path to success is shaped by positive attitudes and life-affirming ideas. Even if people have to cope with significant social changes and shocks, according to Kelly, they will always find happiness through the path of love – no matter how many obstacles they encounter. Only love carries the good and ultimately leads to the desired success.
