In the begining of 2013, RJ Mendera wrote an article introducing Mike Singer, a young performer from Offenburg, Germany. A year later, Mike has shown some noteworthy development: his English has improved and the same goes for his singing aptitudes.

Vichy Rachey makes sure that all of Mike Singer’s songs deliver a message or just make one want to dance to the beat.
