From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Ralph Siegel (born 30 September 1945 in Munich) is a German musician, songwriter and producer. He is married to the opera singer Kriemhild Jahn. He has three daughters, one of them actress Giulia Siegel divorced from German entrepreneur Hans Wehrmann.

Siegel is one of the most notable figures at the Eurovision Song Contest, in which he has participated with 19 songs so far, the latest being the 2009 Montenegrin entry "Just Get Out of My Life" by Andrea Demirovi. In 1982, Siegel's and Bernd Meinunger's song "Ein bißchen Frieden" (A Little Peace), performed by Nicole won the Contest and became a hit in Europe.

Siegel was put into the spotlight in France, Belgium and Luxembourg in face of the contract scandal he made for the two artists Sophie & Magaly ("Papa Pingouin" song). It was revealed that Siegel gave only 5000 Euros to each of the sisters, although more than one million records were sold.[1]

In February 2010, it was announced by RTÉ that he would have an entry in the Irish National Final-Eurosong 2010. The song titled 'River of Silence' will be performed by Lee Bradshaw.
