Music a gogo : Gitte

Danish born Gitte Haenning already made her first record (together with her father) when she was eight.In 1958 she got her first recording-contract and stormed (now solo) the Danish hit-parade.In 1960 she already recorded a jazzsong with Laurie Johnson,she also worked with Oscar Pettiford and Stan Getz.Meanwhile she had also begun to sing in German and Dutch,but her great love remained jazz.Her big break-through in Germany came in 1963 with the song "Ich will 'nen Cowboy als Mann" (more than 800.000 copies sold).Gitte also made versions in Dutch,English and Danish.Everybody went nuts about this little girl with the cute Danish accent!Following this she teamed up with German singer Rex Gildo to make six 45's and an album.But after a while Gitte felt she had enough of the sugar-coated image and decided to go solo again.She decided to bring more cheeky songs instead.From 1966 on a series of hit-singles followed.In the 70's,80's and 90's she was still one of the top-stars in Germany and she performs there to this day.Thanks to Guuzbourg again!
