Guildo Horn is a German schlager singer. He started singing only when he was 29 years old. He was accompanied by his band called Die Orthopädischen Strümpfe.
The performances of Horn and his Strümpfe are always spectacular and contain a lot of interaction with the audience. They perform in the most outrageous costumes.
Horn is not only a singer, but is also known for his performances in theater in operettas, musicals and drama. He also acted in films and had his own television show “Guildo und seine Gäste”, on German television channel SWR. He became internationally known for his participation in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998.
