BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA— Susan Jerome, AKA Suzanah Free, will be singing the hits of German pop superstar Andrea Berg, live on stage at the Viera Fall Festival & Oktoberfest across from Government Center on Saturday, October 26.
Suzanah Free, recently released her album “Forever More” with known patriotic tribute song “Heroes Fight for Peace” performed at Space Coast Stadium, became aware that she had an uncanny resemblance to the voice and look of German Pop Superstar Andrea Berg, during a weekend performance in Cocoa Beach.
Since she likes to sing songs in other languages, Jerome, a classically trained vocalist and pianist, mastered some of Berg’s most popular songs in her home studio.
“If you heard Suzanah Free sing any of Berg’s songs, you would swear it was Berg.
The resemblance is uncanny,” said Chuck Graudins, author of the German child’s novel, The Return of Knecht Ruprecht.”
“Suzanah’s voice is so close to Berg’s you would think they were sisters.”
FALL FESTIVAL SET FOR FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY
The Viera Fall Festival & Oktoberfest will be the heart of the action for the Friday through Sunday Oktoberfest, in Viera.
Both she and her husband Dan Ellis perform as Herr Dan and Fraulein Suzan. In addition to Bergs songs, they will entertain the audience with many sing-along polkas and other German songs.
Guests to Viera’s Fall Festival & Oktoberfest will be offered a variety of delicious authentic German foods and beers as well as this unique German entertainment.
