Patrick Lindner

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Patrick Lindner (b. 27 September 1960 in Munich, Germany) is a German Volksmusik singer.

Life

Born as Friedrich Günther Raab, Lindner worked as a chef before his breakthrough in 1989 when he was second in the Grand Prix der Volksmusik. He then released various singles and albums and hosted TV shows such as "Patrick Lindner persönlich" ("Patrick Lindner Personally"), "So ein Tag mit guten Freunden" ("A Day with Good Friends") and the "Patrick Lindner Show" on ZDF (until 1998). He also had appearances in movies and series as "Weißblaue Wintergeschichten" ("Wintertime Stories"), "Das Traumschiff" and "Soko Special".

By 1997, Lindner abandoned classical Volksmusik in order to make more progressive music. By this time, his coming out and his relationship with manager Michael Link made him popular in Germany – newspapers called them a "Germany's top gay couple". They adopted eight-month old Daniel, a child brought up in an institution in Russia.[1] Link wrote the children's books "Come I'll show you my parents" and "Adventure Adoption or: a lifetime dream comes true" in order to promote tolerance towards homosexuals. The couple broke up in March, 2005.[1]
