Happy Valentine´s Day, February 2016
!!! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY !!!
With a special hug to each of last year's Idols South Africa Top 9 for sharing their voices in what is undeniably a magical rendition of The Power of Love. I'm moved by the energy on that stage and think this is still, 4 months later one of the best versions of this song!
Do you agree?
Hope to see you soon,
Happy New Year, December 2015
Dear Fans, Friends and Family,
As our holiday season is soon to become New Year 2016 I would like to acknowledge that we are all Queens and Kings in our own special and unique ways.
Thank you to all sisters, mothers, nieces and daughters, young and old, who show by example so much love, dignity, respect and patience. All women are true Queens who make us proud when we support and compliment one another openly and sincerely.
Queens are complimented by Kings. Thank you to the men in our lives who show us daily that we are loved. Thank you to our brothers, fathers, nephews and sons who have made a profound difference in so many lives, including mine. It is their thoughtfulness and kind deeds passed forward that honor us.
'Now That I Found You' was one of two songs recorded on the 'Credo' album, I wrote with Barry Eastmond, who continues to be an inspirational colleague, co-writer, collaborator, father, son and husband.
The song's title and lyrics were inspired by myself becoming a mother. I was reminded then, as I am now on a daily basis, what a blessing our children and families are. At every age and stage of their and our lives.
Happy New Year 2016
October 30, 2015:
Dear South African, Zimbabwean, Namibian Fans and Family:
I am very humbled by all the messages that have been forwarded to me. I must admit I am still blown away by the immediate and continued support you have shown me, and my family over the past few weeks.
I would also like to thank all media including radio, TV (especially Idols South Africa) for their messages of support and newspaper journalists for their on going well researched articles.
All of you have confirmed that through sadness and tough times there is always love, hope and optimism.
I feel truly blessed to have spent so much time this year in South Africa with my daughter. We look forward to returning to your beautiful continent as planned and performing in Africa again with the only change being a different stage management company will be hired.
Thinking of you this weekend and here's how I feel now:
To My Fans In South Africa:
I was informed yesterday my father has been put in hospital and he is gravely ill.
Disappointing so many fans here in South Africa who have been attending my concerts and following my television shows here with so much love and kindness is heart wrenching and makes me very sad.
It has been a very difficult decision. However I have decided to catch the first flight back to New York so my daughter may be with her grandfather and I with them both.
It is with a very heavy heart we leave South Africa so suddenly and I can only hope you understand and will welcome me and my family again after such short notice of cancellations of shows.
Jennifer, October 2015

Special Guest in a special show, November 2013
You wanna be haunted by a zombie ? Feel thrilled to survive a meeting with a crazy bloody slaughter ? Dancing with Freddy Kruger ? Don´t dream a nightmare, but live it ? So you are welcome to join the yearly „Horrornights“ in the Moviepark Babelsberg, Potsdam near Berlin.
Over five months star stylist Andrej Baranow and his crew around the entertainer Tina Knaus casted monsteractors, created costumes and masks to realize the this year „Horrornights“ around Halloween. In this week 160 (!) motivated monsters try their best to scare the visitors of the park. „Scream if you can“ is the theme of the days and you can hear the screaming all over the park.
As a special highlight every evening ends with the grusical „The dead carpet“, written by Andrej Baranow and Tina Knaus, taking place in the vulcano arena of the park. A venue for an audience of 5.000 people. The who is who of movie- and legendsmonsters are fighting to be the supermonster in this show, which is a fast mix between horror, humor, action and dance.
Two songs of Jennifer Rush are included in the play – the dark „I See A Shadow (Not A Fantasy)“, played while the monsters fighting hard against each other and „The Power Of Love“ as the happy ending theme, where one frightening character comes back to life. For love – even monsters feel love.
„The Power Of Love“ started with Jennifer strapped in, so she could descend into the audience from 20 feet. Andrej Baranow is a close friend of Jennifer and personal stylist over many years. It was a pleasure for her to follow his invitation to perform these two songs in the final shows of this event and surprise the audience with her appearance. Watch the pics to get a clue about this special performance. Jenny: „It was fun to be part of it! An interesting experience.“

Brilliant voices – amazing shows in Cape Town
First time ever Jennifer Rush live on stage in South Africa, first time ever with a huge choir, first time ever "The Power Of Love" with four "duett"-partners – so many "first times" - did this work? Oh yes – out came a phenomous show with so many highlights, that the audience was just overwhelmed of this festival of voices, in front: Jennifer Rush with her outstanding voice and unbeatable sympathic appearance. The opening act of the show was the South African band Romanz and will be in the concerts in Johannesburg as well - just singing with their keybord player in elegant suits. After this highclass start, Jenny entered the stage in a short black dress - not less elegant than the guys - and catched the audience from the first moment on with "I Come Undone". Jennifer presented her greatest hits as well as some personal favorites and of course songs of the Album "Now Is The Hour". A good mix between uptempo numbers with the full band and silent moments, like the touching ballad "Still" only accompanied by the keybordplayer at the end of the show. After a few songs Jenny changed into a looong golden dress. The South African Youth Choir came on stage to sing Jennifers "Ave Maria" together with her in the orchestral slow version. While Jennifer changed her dress into a beautiful classy black-golden robe, the choir entertained the audience with african rhythm and JOY, before they did "Credo" and "The Places You Find Love" together with the new dresses Jennifer Rush, all songs perfectly new arranged. They gave a flashback to the 90s, since on the album "Credo" in 1997 Jennifer worked together with an african choir in the background. "The Places You Find Love" went over to "The Power Of Love", now also including Romanz. "The Power Of Love" as a quintett - Jennifer and Romanz did soloparts - with choir: all these fantastic voices gave the song a complete new color the people adored. As well as getting on their feet to dance to the original version of "Ave Maria" as encore. Watch some impressions of the Cape Town concerts here. More stagepics will follow soon.

Happy Holidays, December 2012
Another year has past and even though the news on the website might look empty – a lot of interesting things happened for Jennifer Rush this year. Jenny: „An artist is working even if she is not visible.“ Aside from her many gigs and studio projects, Jenny started vocal coaching for talented young singers in New York City which she sees as very inspiring to do. This of course definitely does not mean that she will stop appearing on stage herself in 2013! NO WAY– some live concerts in 2013 and television shows are in concrete planning. The dates will start being confirmed by the end of January. Once the dates are confirmed, we will immediately put them in the dates section. Last month Jenny did an interview with a german magazine – including a home story with some beautiful new pics, we will show on our site soon. You can watch the article in the Fanblog or on Facebook.
Until then: "Happy Holidays to everyone! Will be back with
news soon - I promise. Lots of love to you all, Jenny."
Website relaunched, April 2012"Hope you like the new web design and new pictures! Stay tuned for more news and wishing you all a great Spring and Summer! Love, Jenny"
10 years ago the well known german comedian Dirk Bach made a great idea come true and gathered some artist, friends, and colleagues to go on stage and perform their favourite songs to collect money for the Aids Aid Cologne. Since then he and his organisational partner Bernd von Fehrn found more and more artists, so it got really big over the years. 50 artists – singers, comedians, tv/radio-hosts, actors – took part this year and worked hard for the money they do not get themselves but to give to Aids Aid. This year Jennifer Rush loved to follow the invitation and of course the idea, to perform not a Jennifer-Rush song, but some favourites. The 2 day event started with a little show on Friday night – Jenny performed one of her all time favourites, Aretha Franklin's “Respect”, did a funny duet with the wonderful Dirk Bach afterwards: “I Was Made For Loving You” and surprised him with a spontaneous “Great Balls Of Fire”.
Jennifer Rush and Dirk Bach performing "I Was Made For Loving You"
After this warm up evening the big show started on Saturday with a four hours program. FOUR HOUR PROGRAM ? This cannot work – but it definitely did. Well known german and international artists created an amazing show – some in roles you know them, but some in roles you would never ever have expected them to be good in. Hard to describe – you have to see this with your own eyes. Cover me is funny, nuts, touching, impressing, extremely entertaining – and just sympathic. Never forgetting the good cause behind it: Celebrate for Help.
Jenny did the last song before the grand final and performed Bette Midlers “Wind Beneath My Wings” in a beautiful, beautiful and touching version and got standing ovations from the audience in the sold out Palladium in Cologne. And it is Bette Midlers nickname that really fits to this event: Divine madness !

Jennifer Rush at Cover me
Jennifer Rush is performing at the 10th Annual Cover Me AIDS event in Cologne, Germany, December 9th and 10th.
Acoustic September - loads of travel, fun and performing
Three different stages in one week: on a Luxury Liner, in front of Luxury Cars and for Charity – Jenny used these three “not-open-to-the-public” gigs to enjoy doing her acoustic program. Together with the same keyboarder, who did the Minx-Fashion-Menue event with her last year, she presented her songs unplugged and got fantastic reviews.
First stop was the German Luxury Liner MS Deutschland – for 30 years the MS Deutschland has been the backdrop for the well known TV-Show “Traumschiff." To celebrate this anniversary they invited Jennifer Rush as special guest for a concert on board on their trip from Ibiza to Civitaveccia ( Rome ). The review from no other than the ship-owner wrote about a “grand concert” on the “MS Deutschland of the international praised singer Jennifer Rush: With her characteristic voice and a fascinating performance Jennifer Rush made the audience become extreme enthusiastic. Standing ovations in the concert hall.”
Here some pics of the concert and the rehearsal the day before:
Photos/Copyright: Reederei Peter Deilmann GmbH
It was Jenny´s premiere as a singer on board of the MS Deutschland, but not as a guest. Before her singing-career started years ago – YEARS AGO – she´s been on board as a guest of a crew member and admitted now laughing: “This time, I had a better cabin…” More pics will follow soon.
From Rome Jenny flew over to Frankfurt, Germany for the next gig on the yearly charity event of WIZO (Women´s International Zionist Organisation) – the so called “Patenschaftsgala”. This organisation takes care of injured kids and women in need. Host of the evening was Andrea Kiewel, well known from several german TV-shows. Again Jennifer impressed the audience and the press: “Powerful, impressive – Jennifer Rush is singing her songs so light, that that the audience received goosebumps after the first cadences.“
She stayed in Frankfurt and did a gig for the IAA – Internationale Automesse. Now together with a piano player plus two background singers Gabriella Massa and Valerie Scott. The three women and the man at the piano - M. Subasic - catched the audience with their powerful performance. Pics of this event will follow soon.
Jenny: “I still love singing with my full band, but as an artist it is always fun to try out new arrangements, new ways to perform music. I had this acoustic idea in my head for long, am soo happy it is so well received ! I am ready for more!”
Jennifer Rush Rocks Wulheide with an audience of 17,000
June 25, 2011: As the last act of the night at this year's Open Air Festival of Berlin's Radio Station 91,4. Jennifer came onstage right after 10pm. The schedule was very strict due to laws re: concerts so late in the evening so Jenny didn't have as much time to chat with the audience as she usually does. She used her time to sing her old hits - newly arranged and new songs from her newest CD.
After the song "Eyes of a Woman" came a fun moment. They had placed a beautiful chair for Jenny to sing the her highly emotional ballad "Still" 20 meters away from the band and close to the public. To her it was like a catwalk on a fashion show and she was a bit nervous doing this in high heels. She said "I am a singer not Heidi Klum" no disrespect to Heidi Klum of course - and the audience laughed with her. On her walk back to the stage she was able to fit in one clothing change.
As her last song Jenny and band did Great Balls of Fire - the
musicians had no problem using the catwalk - they were wearing
sneakers! Immediately after Great Balls of Fire there was a
grandiose Fireworks display.
I Come Undone - The Power Of Love - 25 Lovers - Ring Of Ice - Eyes Of A Woman - Still - Tears In The Rain - Destiny - Ave Maria - Great Balls Of Fire

Schwerin – Backstage
Jennifer Rush ON stage means: voice, hair and LOTS of fun. And BACKstage? To make it short: the same. Jenny is talking less during the day since she needs to save her voice for the performances. But her hair also needs to get in shape and even with so much professional discipline there is always enough time to have fun! Here are some candid snapshots from the preparations to her last concert taken in her suite at the hotel in Schwerin.
