Artist description "Lee, Brenda"

Brenda Lee

Geboren am 11. 12. 1944 in Lithonia - Georgia (USA) als Brenda Mae Tarpley. Brenda Lee nahm schon als Sechsjährige an Gesangswettbewerben teil. 1956 trat sie im Vorprogramm von Red Foley auf. Noch im selben Jahr - Brenda war gerade 11 - entstanden ihre ersten Plattenaufnahmen in Nashville. Und bereits 1957 war sie mit ihrer dritten Single, “One Step At A Time', in den US-Charts.

Bis 1970 folgten weitere 48 Hit-Notierungen, darunter 1960 die Nr.-1-Treffer 'I'm Sorry' und 'I Want To Be Wanted': Brenda (1,43 Meter) ganz groß! 1959 gastierte Lee erstmals in Europa - mit Gilbert Becaud im Pariser Olympia. Zwei Jahre später tönte sie auch in deutscher Sprache. Fünf (von sechs) dieser Singles wurden in Nashville besungen, zu vor produzierten Bändern, die James Last gefertigt hatte. Die Single 'In meinen Träumen' - 'Darling, was ist los mit dir' entstand in den Hamburger Polydor-Studios (Produzent: Bert Kaempfert). Mit 'Kansas-City' (dt.), 'Wiedersehn ist wunderschön' und 'Ich will immer auf dich warten' (alle 1964) kam Lee in die deutsche Hitparade.

Während der 70er Jahre konzentrierte sie sich auf Country-Material. 1988 feierte Brenda Lee ein Platten-Comeback, als sie auf der CD “Shadowland' von k. d. lang in guter Form zu hören war. 'Little Miss Dynamite' trat 1993 im Rahmen einiger Revival-Auftritte in London auf (mit dabei u. a. Johnny Tillotson und Chris Montez). Zwei Jahre später sang Lee mit Willy DeVille auf dessen CD 'Loup Garou' das intensiv-hinreißende Schmacht-Duett 'You'll Never Know'. Eine Film-Gastrolle hatte sie 1980 in der US-Produktion “Smokey And The Bandit Ride Again' ('Das ausgekochte Schlitzohr ist wieder auf Achse').
