Nicole (Nicole Seibert, n√©e Hohloch; born October 25, 1964, Saarbr√ľcken, Germany) is a successful German singer.

Life and work

Nicole represented Germany at Eurovision Song Contest 1982 where she won with the song, "Ein bißchen Frieden" ("A Little Peace"), with music by Ralph Siegel and lyrics by Bernd Meinunger. When she reprised the song after the end of the contest voting, she performed parts of the song in English, French and Dutch along with the original German.

Nicole was also the winner of the German Schlagerparade in 1991 with the song "Ein leises Lied".

The full English version of the song "A Little Peace" went on to be the 500th number one single in the UK Singles Chart [1]. Full versions in French ("La Paix sur Terre"), Dutch ("Een beetje vrede"), Spanish ("Un poco de paz"), Danish ("En smule fred"), Slovene ("Malo miru"), Russian ("–Ě–Ķ–ľ–Ĺ–ĺ–≥–ĺ –ľ–ł—Ä–į"), and Polish ("Troszeczkńô ziemi, troszeczkńô sŇāoŇĄca") have also been recorded.
