About Anna Rossinelli

With her soulful voice and authentic, natural radiance, the 23-year-old singer Anna Rossinelli from Basel appeared from nowhere and made it straight into the semi-final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest 2011. She will perform the breezy pop tune In Love For A While in Düsseldorf in front of millions of TV viewers.

However, when it comes to stardom and an international career, the likeable and refreshingly modest singer has both feet firmly on the ground: “I’m far from being a star. I just love to make music with the other members of my band, Georg Dillier (bass) and Manuel Meisel (guitar). We’ll wait and see what happens.”

The catchy and tastefully-arranged acoustic song has been written and produced by the well-known Swiss musician David Klein, who has previously composed songs for stars such as Herbert Grönemeyer, Xavier Naidoo and Sarah Connor. He discovered the charismatic Anna as she was busking in the street and decided there and then to write a song just for her. “Switzerland hasn’t had such a talented singer with the potential to become an international star for years”, according to Klein.
