Since its founding in 2009, the Heidelberger Frühling Wettbewerb "Das Lied" has discovered a multitude of talents and given the starting signal for promising careers through its support in the form of prize money, concert appearances, media presence and networking in the international song scene. Many of the former participants are now established singers of their generation and can be seen regularly on the world's major stages. They include soprano Nikola Hillebrand, baritones Jóhann Kristinsson, Manuel Walser, Martin Häßler, Benjamin Appl, Samuel Hasselhorn and pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz. Many of the former participants continue to be closely associated with the Heidelberger Frühling and its Liedzentrum and perform as part of the Liedfestival and Lied.LABs, develop joint song projects, or pass on their knowledge in master classes.
