Laith Al-Deen

Laith Al-Deen, born February 20, 1972 in Karlsruhe, Germany, is a German language pop musician.[1]

Biography and Career

Born of an Iraqi father and German mother, Al-Deen grew up in the United States and Mannheim, Germany. He achieved his first fame with his debut album, Ich will nur wissen (English: I Only Want to Know), from which came his first two singles, Bilder von Dir (English: Pictures of you, German version of the 1995 hit Everlasting Pictures of B-Zet with Darlesia) and Kleine Helden (English: Little Heroes). His second album, Melomanie, released in 2002, resulted in the singles Dein Lied (English: Your Song) and Jetzt, Hier, Immer (English: Now, Here, Always), and was just as successful as his debut album. Al-Deen was also nominated for the Comet, a music award given by the German broadcaster VIVA in the category of Hip hop/R&B, which he declined, saying that he would only seek recognition for German-language music rather than an international award

At the beginning of 2004, Al-Deen released the album Für Alle (English: For Everyone), which was seen a continuation of his previous musical style. The album reached the top spot on the German album charts and was Al-Deen's greatest commercial success. The single taken from Für Alle, Alles an dir (English: All Of You), reached #21 on the German charts, the highest position for one of al-Deen's singles up to that point. The second single taken from the album, Höher (English: Higher) was one of the finalists for Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004. In fall of 2004, Al-Deen produced a live album, which performed well on the German charts for several weeks. In September 2005 a DualDisc of this live album was released, with the entire album rerecorded in 5.1 surround sound. In June 2007 a new album, Die Liebe zum Detail (English: The Love For the Detail) and a new single, Keine wie du (English: None Like You), were released. The album reached #3 on the German charts, and Keine wie du reached sixteenth on the German singles charts.
