Cascada

Since the release of their first album almost ten years ago, Cascada look back on world-wide successes like Everytime We Touch, Miracle, Evacuate The Dancefloor, San Francisco, Summer Of Love or The Rhythm Of The Night.

Front-singer Natalie Horler and her team of producers and writers Yann Peifer (Yanou) and Manuel Reuter (Manian) have topped charts in more than 20 countries with their irresistible dance-pop songs. Collecting numerous awards (e.g. the World Music Award in 2007) throughout their career, they have established themselves as one of the top European dance floor acts of the present. Bonn-based Natalie grew up in Germany. The daughter of David Horler, an acclaimed jazz musician and arranger who worked with likes of Quincy Jones, Stan Getz and Tony Bennett, Natalie grew up around music, though was more influenced by stars like Maria Carey and Whitney Houston. At age 18 she started doing studio work and recorded several tracks for different DJs.


In 2004, through her studio work, she met Cologne-based producers Yann Peifer (Yanou) and Manuel Reuter (Manian) who invited her to front their new project, Cascada. Within 18 months, together they found international fame with their huge debut hit Everytime We Touch. A smash in the States before the band even toured there, the song quickly caught on across the globe, followed by a multi-platinum selling album of the same title. The success of the album gained the World Music Award in the category World's Best-Selling German Artist. The second album Perfect Day (2007), led by hit single What Hurts The Most, continued Cascada’s reign as one of the world’s Top Ten selling dance acts.

German authors and producers Yann Peifer (aka Yanou) and Manuel Reuter (aka Manian) have shared a career path for many years. They met virtually by accident in 2004 in a recording studio in Düsseldorf and have been working together ever since. One of their first songs is Miracle, which in 2004 lead to the foundation of the Cascada project with lead singer Natalie Horler. In 2005 they produced the worldwide smash hit Everytime We Touch, which also gave the project its breakthrough and eventually won the World Music Award in 2007.

In 2006 Manian and Yanou added another dimension to their careers as songwriters and producers and founded the record label Zooland. The label’s international breakthrough came with the newly founded project R.I.O and its summer 2008 hit Shine On. Their productions now make weekly appearances in the European charts, and the second major Cascada hit Evacuate The Dancefloor, made the top ten worldwide and reached number one in the official UK charts.

In 2013 Manuel and Yann will represent Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö with “Cascada – Glorious”. They have also been nominated for GEMA’s German Music Author Award for their long-standing cooperation.

Lyrics of Glorious

Do you know
It's time to let yourself go
Why don't we just let it show
Tell me what you're waiting for
Tonight we can be
Glorious
We are young at heart and we're free
The world is ours
I can feel the music in me
Glorious
Found a love that eyes cannot see
Delirious
I believe
The little child inside of me
Can rebuild my destiny
And one day i'll be breaking free
Tonight we can be
Glorious
We are young at heart and we're free
The world is ours
I can feel the music in me
Glorious
Found a love that eyes cannot see
Delirious
I can feel the music in me
Found a love that eyes cannot see
We are glorious
We are glorious
We are glorious
We are glorious
Tonight we can be
Glorious
We are young at heart and we're free
The world is ours
I can feel the music in me
Glorious
Found a love that eyes cannot see
Delirious
Sais-tu
Que le temps est venu de lâcher prise,
Pourquoi ne pas simplement le montrer
Dis-moi ce que tu attends car
Cette nuit nous pouvons être
Glorieux
Notre coeur est jeune et nous sommes
libres
Le monde nous appartient
Je sens la musique en moi
Glorieux
J’ai trouvé un amour que les yeux ne
voient pas,
Délirant
J’y crois
Le petit enfant qui m’habite
Peut transformer ma destinée
Et le jour viendra de larguer les amarres
Cette nuit nous pouvons être
Glorieux
Notre coeur est jeune et nous sommes
libres
Le monde nous appartient
Je sens la musique en moi
Glorieux
J’ai trouvé un amour que les yeux ne
voient pas,
Délirant
Je sens la musique en moi
J’ai trouvé un amour que les yeux ne
voient pas,
Nous sommes glorieux
Nous sommes glorieux
Nous sommes glorieux
Nous sommes glorieux
Cette nuit nous pouvons être
Glorieux
Notre coeur est jeune et nous sommes
libres
Le monde nous appartient
Je sens la musique en moi
Glorieux
J’ai trouvé un amour que les yeux ne
voient pas,
Délirant
