Native American giving lot’s of energy to the German Eurodance scene
Since 1985, Bernard which is a native American has been living in Germany, and like so many artists before him, the U.S. Army brought him to Europe. After he left the Army, he began to live of his talents of singer and dancer which he had discovered during his scholarship.
“Everything began in a Gospelchoir at school”, he tells. “My first musical experience was in a Rhythm & Blues style, which still remains my favourite music style”.
Without any difficulty, mr Bernard made his place on the Frankfurter scene, awarding first places in many rap contests. He was soon contacted by the producers who would launch his international career. Among these internationally recognised people was Jam El Mar who had already made some remixes for Dr. Alban, Enigma, Frankie Goes to of Hollywood or Quincy Jones, and Stefan Benz, who co-wrote the lyrics of B.G.’ s songs. With this team B.G. could really deserve his surname ‘The Prince OF Rap’.
