His wife Ramona (49) and his daughter were by his side all evening As Joel (27). They sat to his left and right on the sofa. For him they are the most important people in his life and he emphasizes that again and again. He has been with his wife for over 30 years and still loves her like the first day: 'I love her more than anything. Ramona belongs by my side, we hold hands, we just love each other. And that is the most beautiful thing when you love each other.” Words are followed by deeds: Ramona says that he still writes little love letters to her today and picks flowers from the garden.

His last appearance belonged to his daughter

The best for last. He made his final appearance with his daughter Joelina. He in a white suit and she in a white dress stood side by side on the stage and sang together one last time – at least in public. At the end there were fireworks and wet eyes again. How much this appearance meant to his daughter can be seen from her emotional words, which she addresses to her dad on Instagram. There she writes: It is not easy for me to put into words how enriching you were, are and always will be - not only for me - but for so many people and generations! Your career and your life's work is extraordinary and I admire you for it and take my hat off to you! You pioneered an entire genre of music and paved the way for many artists to come after you. Dad, I love you with all my heart! This is your life's work and you deserve it! I admire you forever!” And Jürgen Drews has more than earned his retirement after this unique career. ( mri )
