Listen to Winni Biermann, Germany’s Singing Trucker, belt out some great opera music
Germany’s truck driver, Winfried Biermann, also known as “Winni” has got some amazing opera singing talent. According to NBC World News, Michael Brueggemann, head of Sony Classical Music Germany, heard Winni singing in a video, and he knew he had to be tracked down at that moment.
Winni has been working for a logistics firm since 1997, transporting building material and rubble in West Germany.
He told NBC News, “Every day, I sing operas and operettas while driving my 40-ton truck.”
Just last week, Winni hit the studio and recorded his first three songs for a new album called “A Song Drives Around the World.” It was especially exciting for him since it was his birthday. He said, “It was the best birthday of my life.”
He added, “What’s happening to me is unbelievable, it is a dream. But for now, I will not give up my 12-hour working days in the truck.”
