Four music-loving kids who have dedicated themselves to Schlager – that really went down well with German Schlager fans. At the end of 2020, Benedikta Bechtolsheim, Miguel Gaspar, Lena Falkowski and Phil Schaller formed a quartet after they had previously passed their matriculation exams with “The Voice Kids”.

None of the audience’s favorites was older than 13 at the time. In October 2021, Benedikta left the group again to concentrate on school. Now Lena, Miguel and Phil are drawing the line – and announcing the dissolution of the Schlagerkids.

Schlagerkids: “A crying and a laughing eye”

“We, the Schlagerkids, will go our separate ways after two wonderful albums to face new musical challenges,” announce Lena, Miguel and Phil on Instagram. “We are incredibly grateful for the time and have a crying and a laughing eye,” it continues.

The three are still keeping a back door open for their future Schlager ambitions and for the Schlagerkids project: “How the Schlagerkids band will continue, whether there will be a new generation, that remains to be seen.” For Miguel Kaspar, the Schlager journey is already continuing solo. On March 25, the young talent released the single “And then I thought of you”.

Out after two successful albums

With “Die Schlagerkids Vol. 1” and the Christmas album “Vol. 2 – Winter & Christmas Carols” the group released two successful albums in the short time of their existence. Their first big appearance led the quartet directly to Florian Silbereisen’s Schlagerchampions stage.

With the cover version of Ben Zucker’s “What a great time” they won the hearts of the Schlager audience in no time at all. As a Schlagerkids trio, Lena, Miguel and Phil also demonstrated their skills in the “ZDF TV Garden” with Andrea Kiewel and on the “Always Again on Sundays” stage with Stefan Mross. “Thank you for a really, really great time and see you very, very soon,” is the farewell greeting from the Schlagerkids on Instagram.

Lena Meyer-Landrut sheds tears, and few eyes remained dry in front of the television. When she was recording “The Voice Kids” in the fall, ten-year-old Berenike could not have guessed that war would soon rage in Europe.
