Great emotions on ZDF: Although he has actually withdrawn from the public eye, Jürgen Drews is on stage with his daughter Joelina.

Munich – During the Christmas season, TV is particularly contemplative. On Thursday evening (7 November), Carmen Nebel (67) will present "The Most Beautiful Christmas Hits" live on ZDF. Joelina Drews (28) was also announced as a guest – but she had an emotional surprise in her luggage: She performed with her dad Jürgen Drews (78), who had actually said goodbye to the stage after health problems.

Surprise at Carmen Nebel: Joelina performs with dad Jürgen Drews

In 2022, Jürgen Drews officially said goodbye to the stage. An incurable nervous disease had weakened him progressively. But the King of Mallorca obviously can't do without the big stage after all: In Carmen Nebel's "The Most Beautiful Christmas Hits" he performs a duet with his daughter Joelina and causes great emotions.

Joelina Drews performs her Christmas song "My Greatest Gift", which she dedicated to her family, in the ZDF show. As soon as the 28-year-old performs, emotions run high: children's photos of her and her dad are shown in the background. Then Jürgen Drews himself joins her on stage. Dressed in a glittering suit with a bow tie, he sings with his daughter. "No one can promise us today that we will set this table the same way next year" and "We are racing against time".

After this performance, there is not a dry eye in the house – neither for Ramona Drews (50), who followed the emotional moment from the audience, nor for Jürgen or Joelina herself. Crying, she throws her arms around his neck as the song ends. "Otherwise, I'm always the one who cries. Now it's you. Oh darling, I love you, we all love you. Mom is crying too," smiles Jürgen Drews, who himself has tears in his eyes. There is a standing ovation from the audience for this performance.

"We didn't have such an easy year as a family and I packed all the emotions into this song and it was my heart's desire that my dad would come back to this song. And he fulfilled that for me and I am very, very grateful for that," Joelina emphasizes. Jürgen Drews is also visibly moved and reported that he had always cried during the rehearsals.
