Biography

There are four singers known as Jeanette.

1. Jeanette Dimech, an English-born singer who sings primarily in Spanish.
2. Jeanette Biedermann, a multi-million selling singer and actress from Germany.
3. Jeanette, a singer from South Africa.
4. Jeanette Dwyer, a British singer active in the 1980s


Jeanette Dimech (October 10, 1951 - ), who performs under the name Jeanette, is an English-born, American-raised singer who has resided in Spain since the age of 12.

Because of her grandparents’ import-export business, she lived with her parents first in London, where she was born; and later in Chicago and Los Angeles, where she grew up. After her parents’ separation at age 12, she moved to Barcelona, where her mother was from.

During the 1960s she learnt to play guitar and began to write her own songs. She styled her music after American folk music, and her idols included Bob Dylan, Donovan, and The Byrds. Later she joined the student band Pic-Nic as a singer, who in 1969 had a measure of success with a folk version of the Spanish children’s song Cállate niña. Other notable songs of theirs included Amanecer and No digas nada.

After the band split up at the end of the 1960s, she moved to Vienna with her husband, the Hungarian musician Laszlo Kristof. At the start of the 1970s, she began her solo career with her hit first single,Soy Rebelde (I am a rebel).

    Эй, админы, ау!!! Я думаю что нужно свести концы с концами, и перестать вводить людей в заблуждение... Я прежде всего о том, что на фотках у вас представлено 2 разных человека. 1. Janette Anne Dimech 2. Jeanette Biedermann Они обе певицы, конечное, но исполняют очень уж разную музыку. Определитесь так-же с подбором треков и отделите таким образом мух от котлет... В инете и так левой инфы полно. Не стоит добавлять в это болото очередную порцию некачественной информации...
