In 1959, she obtained a record deal with the Philips label, and her first single “Chico Chico Charlie” reached number five. In 1960, her recording of “Wir wollen niemals auseinandergehn” or “We Will Never Part (Ring of Gold)” sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. Brühl first took part in the German Eurovision selection in 1960 with “Wir wollen niemals auseinandergehn” , which finished in second place but went on to top the German singles chart for nine weeks. She participated again in 1963, and this time was successful when “Marcel” was chosen to go forward to the eighth Eurovision Song Contest. After Eurovision she focused mostly on her acting career.
