Bremen: No half measures: May fight in court and in showbiz

Surprisingly, the judgment for Corinna May not actually came. "We had expected," says the 49-Year-old, after the Bremen state court of justice dismissed their complaint against the state election in 2019. May, blind from birth, had criticized her husband Claus Janz (artist name: "Claus with a C"), the limited exercise of the right to vote for the Blind and visually Impaired through defects in the documents and equipment in polling stations. However, the court saw no violations, and no reason to declare the election invalid. "We now appeal to the Federal constitutional court. No half measures, we bring to an end,“ said May.

"No half measures", this could also be the Motto for the music and the performances Mays. At the Moment, she and her husband have plenty of time to reinforce your commitment to the disabled. However, more time than you actually love: The Corona pandemic has made a thick red line through their gig calendar. "We were fully booked until the end of the year," says May, who competed at the "Eurovision Song Contest" (ESC) in 2002 in Tallinn for Germany. Especially in southern Germany, Stuttgart, München, Frankfurt, the people Corinna wanted to hear, May. Now, there are no Mega-concerts in halls. Usually there are companies you can book. But also at private parties and weddings, they occur either as Corinna May "pur" or "Claus with a C" in the Formation "OneKiss".

The ESC, the Bremer woman in good memory, also as an important Push for your career. In 1999, she came in the preliminary round for the first time at number one with the song "listen to the children simply to". However, the title was cancelled, because composer Frank had published Zumbroich the song in 1997 as a Promo-CD. In 2000, she tried again, losing to Stefan Raab. In 2002 it worked in the third attempt in the preliminary rounds, and May take the title of "I Can't Live Without Music" to Tallinn, where they reached only 21st place.

Without music would be a life today May well be difficult to conceive. Is rehearsed often in a Studio in Schwanewede, near Bremen, which bears the name of "the angel lounge". Both musicians have a lot of Humor. "Laughter is on the agenda," says Janz. Their songs May sings most of all live and on stage. Also the Songs of Abba may be, or Tina Turner. "Today, music is ironed so smooth and sterile" regrets. A long time she also performed with a Jazz Trio. It's not worth it but then at some point financially: "Live music is not more appreciated."

The new May Single is actually finished. Also a very renowned producers there is. Much more both of them are not going to tell. You wait for the right Moment to introduce the Single. This is best done on a tour, not to think of what currently is. "The Song is meant for the US market", is Janz then but a small note. Sceptical both as to whether the Single can still be in this year presented.
