Nadine Beiler was born in Innsbruck on the 27th of May, 1990. After attending primary and secondary school in her home town of Inzing, she received her “Abitur” certificate at a music gymnasium in Innsbruck. The 20-year old Tyrolean grew up with music and singing: “I come from a very musical family, and I had my first performances at the tender age of five during Christmas and family parties.”
Nadine’s first performance on a big stage came in 2006 at the ORF Starmania casting show, where a little girl with a great voice won against 2,500 candidates, and later went on to prevail over all other contesters during the finals in January 2007.
Following her victory at Starmania Nadine’s music career progressed at a rather slow pace. No wonder, she was only sixteen at the time! She had to go back to school first, where she successfully graduated from two years later. After her graduation, she began studying law at the University of Innsbruck.
Since you can’t suppress talent for too long, however, Nadine joined the competition for the Austrian preliminaries for the Eurovision Song Contest in autumn 2010 – what a brilliant comeback it was! On the 25th of February, 2011, viewers once again crowned her victor at a major prime time show, where she sang The Secret Is Love, for which she also wrote the lyrics.
