Freddy Quinn (Germany 1956) to marry at 91

Germany’s first-ever Eurovision artist, Freddy Quinn, has announced he’s finally getting married – at the age of 91 years old!

Quinn, who sold more than 60 million records and appeared in at least 15 films over his illustrious career is marring his long-time friend Rosi (64). The two became a couple sometime after the death of Quinn’s longtime parter Lilli Blessmann in 2008.

Interviewed by the German paper Bild, Rosi was asked if Freddy proposed in a romantic way. Her reply was:

“No! It’s not Freddy’s way. We’ve talked about this for so many years. And a few weeks ago he suddenly said: We’ll do it now! Let’s get married! And then everything happened very quickly and we were in the middle of planning. There is so much paperwork to do.”

Bild points out the wedding will be a small affair, just a small event with some family and friends.

Freddy Quinn was one of two artists from Germany at the inaugural Eurovision Song Contest in Lugano in 1956. That was the only Contest where the results were never revealed, so officially, he tied for second place (along with the other 12 acts).
