December. The singer and known composer turned 80 years old.

During a walk in the Swiss town of Gottlieben, Udo Jürgens had suffered a heart attack, leaving all of Germany in mourning shortly before Christmas. Time of death: 16:25, after acute heart failure.

No matter how old or young: His hits like "Greek wine" and "I've never been to New York" sound familiar to everyone. With him, Germany lost a very big, world-famous star. Rest in peace, Udo!
