Jasmin Bayer as a teenage girl

A girl that knew very early in her life what she wanted. She wanted to sing!
A woman to do exactly what her heart told her to do decades ago. Sing!
When looking back on the time passed, she admits, that not one single day should be missed. For every day is another tile to the mosaic of her personality, a gift and an experience.
Her lyrics and her music are a mirror of these years – are the essence of a colourful and rich life. They are her zest for life as well as her melancholy and sometimes grief and positive anger. And – this is only the beginning!
