Actually, the suicides in his family are at least publicly a taboo subject for Andreas Gabalier. But now he is talking about the heavy blows of fate. As he reveals, he still finds it difficult to understand his sister’s suicide.
Graz/Austria – Even if it is now known that Andreas Gabalier (everything about folk rock’n’roller) had to cope with two suicides in his family, the pop singer does not speak about it publicly. Now he’s making an exception. In an emotional interview with RTL, he reveals that he still misses his little sister to this day, but at the same time cannot understand her suicide.
“We had a happy family life”: To this day, Andreas Gabalier does not understand his sister’s suicide
Standing on stage, giving everything, entertaining his fans: Andreas Gabalier (the most successful German pop singer of all time) is a pop singer with body and soul. But music isn’t just the Austrian’s job, it’s also an outlet. In his lyrics, he works through strokes of fate from his past, such as the suicide of his father (†53) and his little sister Elisabeth (†19). Events that still affect him to this day.
“A little sister will always be missing. It is the case with parents that at some point they will leave – hopefully before a child has a child. But of course the little sister is missing,” said Andreas Gabalier, unusually privately, in an RTL interview. Even though he may have worked through these heavy losses today, he still can’t understand them. “I still can’t understand it to this day, because we lived a totally happy and lovely family life. It was all the more shocking back then,” says the pop singer.
“Have to wait now”: Andreas Gabalier puts dates at the back for now
In his new song, Andreas Gabalier also sings about love. Since separating from Silvia Schneider in September 2019, the hit star has been single – and it will probably stay that way for a while. “Dates have no place right now. No, they have to wait now,” he says.
So the folk rock’n’roller is single – but a woman like “Let’s Dance” star Ekaterina Leonova would have a chance with Andreas Gabalier, as he recently revealed. Flattered by the compliment, the 35-year-old dancer is now on the offensive. The Austrian is a “likeable guy”. Sources used: RTL
