Who is Vanessa Petruo?

Vanessa Anneliese Petruo, also known as Vany, is a German singer–songwriter and actress. She came to international prominence as a member of the all–female pop band No Angels, that was created during the talents show Popstars. The band enjoyed a great popularity throughout Central Europe, following their record–breaking debut single "Daylight in Your Eyes" and the album Elle'ments. From 2001 to 2003, No Angels sold more than 5 million units. After their disbandment in 2003, Petruo launched her solo career.

After the release of the moderately successful solo song "Drama Queen", Petruo took much more control over her image and music. Following a short hiatus from public performance, she introduced elements of blues, funk and jazz into her solo album debut Mama Lilla Would, which was critically acclaimed but a commercial failure. Her musical ambitions have since mainly focused on her training as a jazz singer and several new compositions, widely published through her own MySpace. In 2007 Petruo refused to rejoin No Angels.

While maintaining a recording career Petruo has also gained fame for both her work as a voice actress and starring in several film and television productions, including RTL series Wilde Engel and a supporting role in the 2006 film Where Is Fred?.
