U.S. singer brings message to Germany
A Christian singer from the United States will perform her first concert for an American audience in Germany on Saturday at a church outside Heidelberg.
The concert will be different from the ones Cae Gauntt has performed in the past, she said.
When performing for mostly German audiences, Gauntt speaks about developing a personal relationship with God — a topic that is foreign to many Christians in Germany, she said. Because most Americans are familiar with the concept, Gauntt said she planned to tell the audience about the differences between Christian practices in Germany and the States.
“It’s no doubt that Cae is the most famous Christian singer in Germany,” said Stefanie Goemmer, marketing manager for music for Gerth Media, Gauntt’s record label. “As we say, she is the first lady of Christian music here.”
Gauntt, who has released eight albums, said her music had a European flavor, incorporating the sounds of Peter Gabriel, Björk and Jars of Clay.
She admitted to being slightly nervous about speaking English throughout the concert, rather than German, even though her songs are in English.
“This is really an unusual situation for me,” she said. “It’s really hard to change gears.”
