A couple of Europeans singing in German. One a classical singer of the 1930's and the other a big hit of 1959.

Joseph Schmidt - Today is the happiest day of my life

A Romanian Jew who unfortunately was a star in Berlin when Hitler came to power which destroyed his career and life as he died in a refugee camp in 1942.
Only about 1.50 m tall he had a powerful voice

Ivo Robic - Morgen - Also available on You Tube. Robic was a Croatian singer who sang this song in German; it was translated as an English language hit 'One more sunrise' for Lesley Uggams.
