Joy Fleming

Joy Fleming (born Erna Raad on November 15, 1944 in Rockenhausen, Rhineland-Palatinate, married name Liebenow) is a German singer who is probably best-known for her performance in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1975. She performed the song Ein Lied kann eine Brücke sein and was placed 17th out of 19 countries.

Joy Fleming made a further Eurovision bid in 1986, participating in the German national contest with the song Miteinander which came 4th. Joy's next involvement with Eurovision came in 2001 when, under a somewhat confusing arrangement with Swiss television she co-sang their contribution to the German final. The song, Power of Trust was performed with two other singers, Lesley Bogaert and Brigitte Oelke and was placed 2nd. Joy made another attempt in 2002 and finished2nd yet again, this time performing Joy to the World with the group Jambalaya.

In 1973 Joy represented Germany at the World Popular Song Festival in Japan with the song Ihr Durft Die Augen Nicht Verschliessen which came 8th and won an Oustanding Song Award and an Oustanding Performance Award.
