Oli P. would have been on the same plane as Melanie Thornton
The news will not be forgotten: Melanie Thornton was killed in a plane crash in 2001 at the age of only 34. Every year at Christmas, fans are reminded of the terrible tragedy with their successful Christmas song “Wonderful Dream”. Oli P., 43, is someone who is looking at fate with completely different eyes. The singer has now revealed for the first time that he himself almost lost his life in the plane crash.
In the Vox show “Die Hitwisser” he told the previously unknown story for the first time. “Back then there was the Coca-Cola Christmas tour and they asked me,” said the 43-year-old. But Oli P. made one condition: his entire team including the band should fly with them. The client did not agree and so the singer canceled the performance. Oli P. experienced his very own Christmas miracle with it.
Patricia Kelly announces new tour – fans react differently than expected
Many musicians have had to postpone or completely cancel their tours in the past weeks and months due to the ongoing corona pandemic. Patricia Kelly, 52, on the other hand, recently let her fans know that she will be doing a few stage appearances over the next year. But with the announcement, she probably does not score with all fans. Some are even really angry.
The official presale for the new tour started on December 20th, 2021 at 10 a.m. For many fans, this is an inopportune time, as not all of them had the opportunity to buy tickets online this early in the day. Some also complained that money was scarce so shortly before Christmas. Still others regret the choice of location for Patricia Kelly’s tour. A user commented on an Instagram post by the 52-year-old: “Berlin was forgotten, first the cancellation and now no longer in the tour schedule for the new tour. I am totally sad and a bit angry.” After all: the majority of fans can look forward to the singer’s shows in the coming year.
Howard Carpendale surprises his fans with a funny Christmas video
For Howard Carpendale, 75, family is one of the most important things in the world, especially around Christmas. For his fans, the singer has come up with a special Christmas present for the occasion: The “Ti amo” interpreter has published a family video on Instagram in which his son Wayne, 44, daughter-in-law Annemarie, 44, and grandson Mads, 3, shared from of the lot.
“What a family! Wayne, Annemarie and Mads”, Howard Carpendale introduces his Instagram post. His family gave him great pleasure in producing the video. “I can’t explain what that means to me. I hope you like it,” said the pop star. The fans are enthusiastic. “Absolutely awesome the video” and “How cool is that” are just two of the numerous comments on the clip in which “Howie” draws attention to his Christmas album “Happy Christmas”, which has been available since November 26th, 2021.
Angelo Kelly: Son William inspires fans with a sweet Christmas song
Long blonde hair, the voice clear and angelic – no question about it, little William Kelly is very reminiscent of his father Angelo Kelly, 39, who was also on stage at the young age of six and presented his musical talent. William is the youngest child of Angelo and his wife Kira Kelly, 42. Together with the other three children, the family conjures up a contemplative atmosphere in the living room with a new edition of their Christmas album “Coming Home for Christmas”. And especially William seems to be wrapping the fans around his cute little finger.
Angelo released a short video in which the six-year-old is in the studio and sings the Christmas classic “The Little Drummer Boy”. “You have to say that William is getting better and better at singing, that’s really crazy,” says his oldest brother Gabriel Kelly, 20, in a nutshell. The fans see it that way too. “Goldig, little Kelly”, “So Sweet” and “Sooo beautifully sung by William” are the enthusiastic comments.
Anna-Carina Woitschack: Family visit! Here she shows her mom
At Christmas time, many people come home to their families. Anna-Carina Woitschack, 29, has now also taken a little break to spend hours together with her mom in Saxony-Anhalt. While the pop singer in her Instagram story initially shows herself alone at the Großer Goitzschesee in bright sunshine, she spends the following moments with her mom.
In her Instagram feed, Anna-Carina Woitschack shares a sweet snapshot in which mother and daughter happily pose with a mulled wine. “A mulled wine with mom. Greetings from Bitterfeld,” writes the former DSDS candidate about her admission. The fans are delighted. “A wonderful photo”, enthuses one user and another notices: “You look very much like your mom.”

Andy Borg went too far with Vanessa Mai with this statement
In the latest edition of “Do you understand fun?”, Which was also host Guido Cantz’s, 50, farewell program, there was again a lot to laugh about. Only one person seemed to have passed the laughter at least for a brief moment: Vanessa Mai, 29. After the performance of her song “Home (Christmas Time)”, the pop singer took a seat on the couch next to the presenter. Andy Borg, 61, in particular, seemed taken with the artist. After the stage appearance and a few moments on the celebrity couch, he enthused: “If you look over there, you think she doesn’t really need to sing. She just has to stand up and say: ‘beautiful’!”
Happy look for thoughtful lines
A compliment that backfired, because after this statement Vanessa Mai was visibly irritated. Nevertheless, she was professional and answered politely: “Thank you”. Guido Cantz tried to save the situation. “I think she sang wonderfully,” he interjected. And Arabella Kiesbauer, 52, tried to turn things around: “That was a compliment,” the presenter played down Andy Borg’s saying.
