Hailing from one of the most unlikely places for a pop star, Helene Fischer was born in Krasnoyarsk in Russian Siberia in August 1984. Her family, being of German descent, soon found its way back to central Europe, relocating to Germany while Fischer was still a youngster. Fischer went on to study music and theater in Frankfurt, eventually landing a record contract and releasing her first album, Von Hier bis Unendlich (From Here to Infinity), in February 2006. Her second album, So Nah Wie Du (As Close as You), followed in September 2007. Both albums were extremely popular in Germany, making Fischer one of the country's most popular schlager singers. ~ Chris TruePortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
