A Night On The River

Axel Jeder from Aachen, Germany

Dear CdeB-Fans,

This year I don't want to talk about me, the person who did the song "A Night On The River". I just want to say a few words to all of you. This is my 3rd CdeB-Tribute-Project I took part in and my 2nd where I also took part as a member of the committee (listening jury).

Every year again I am astonished and amazed about how much joy and fun people have, who come together and make music. Even though thousands of miles, different languages and different cultures lay between us, we all join for one reason namely to honour in our way Chris de Burgh, the man and his music.

And this year, too, the committee again did a great job. We had fun, we had discussions and we really were not of the same opinion every time. But I am sure, that we have a great CD again, and I must admit that I am of course a little bit proud of us all.

I hope that we will keep these projects and the spirit of being a part of something huge alive and I love to take part in it next year again.

Take care of yourself, have a merry Christmas and I hope we all come together again next year.

Axel Jeder
