Rainhard Fendrich

Andrew duetted with Rainhard Fendrich on Fendrich's Xmas single, Little Drummer Boy/Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht: released Xmas 1997.

Rainhard is famous as a singing star and actor in Austria and Germany, and asked Andrew to sing with him on a version of "Silent Night" which copied the original idea by only featuring two voices and an acoustic guitar.

Quick memories:
"I drove to Rainhard's house in Vienna to record the song and we practiced it in his studio. I learned how to sing it in German but with an Austrian Linz accent, and Rainhard said I sounded too foreign. (He wanted more of a Vienna accent...)"
