Leipzig. “Please, don’t give up yet, I will keep you close to me”: Singer Sarah Connor dedicated the premiere of her new song “Stark” to the flood victims on Friday evening. “We stick together,” the 41-year-old said at the ART charity show. For the show, he decided to present the song for his upcoming album earlier. The song is about hugging someone and being there. “That’s the most important thing we can do tonight.”
While watching films from the Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia, Connor spoke to evaluator Sarah von Nieberk about her own feelings and her concern that such a catastrophe could happen again due to the growing climate crisis. “I have four children. It scares me.” His heart goes out to the victims, helpers and rescuers.
