Nur die Liebe läßt uns leben - Mary Roos

Mary Roos was born as Rosemarie Schwab on January 9, 1949. She started singing at a very early age and recorded her first song when she was 9 years old.

In 1972, she represented Germany during the Eurovision Song Contest after a rather controversial win during the national final. Mary stated that she did not expect to win at all and that she was already removing her make-up when she was called back on stage. After the reprise of the winning song, she was booed off stage. However, at the Eurovision Song Contest she finished third. The single reached number 17 in the German singles chart. The B-side of this single is a German language cover of 'You can't hurry love', the famous Supremes track from 1966.
