From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ralph Siegel (born 30 September 1945 in Munich) is a German musician, composer and producer. He is married to the opera singer Kriemhild Jahn.

Siegel is one of the most notable figures at the Eurovision Song Contest, in which he has participated with 19 songs so far, the latest being the 2009 Montenegrin entry Just Get Out of My Life by Andrea Demirović. In 1982, Siegel's and Bernd Meinunger's song Ein bißchen Frieden (A Little Peace), performed by Nicole won the Contest and became a hit in Europe.

Siegel was put into the spotlight in France, Belgium and Luxembourg in face of the contract scandal he made for the two artists Sophie & Magaly (Papa Pingouin song). It was revealed that Siegel gave only 5000 Euros to each of the sisters, although more than one million records were sold.
