Andrea Elisabeth Maria Jürgens (born May 15, 1967 in Wanne-Eickel, † July 20, 2017 in Recklinghausen) was a German pop singer. She became known as a child star in the late 1970s.

At the age of ten, Jürgens, who was discovered by Jack White in 1977, had her first TV appearance on the ARD New Year's Eve Gala evening gala with Rudi Carrell. She performed the song composed by White and written by Jon Athan that evening, and I love both of you, when she sang about the situation after a divorce from a childish perspective. Then she appeared in other television programs, and her song was picked up by several radio stations. The single entered January 1978 in the German single charts and reached the fourth place. In March of the year, she sang in the hosted by Dieter Thomas Heck ZDF hit parade in which she took first place.

Her second success was in July 1978, the song I'll show you my paradise (5th place), which could place as well as Tina is gone (1979, 49th place) in the German charts. She thus solidified her image as the first child star after Heintje, with whom she sang a duet on the television show Snack in the same year. The year 1979, which was proclaimed by the United Nations as Year of the Child, led to the next hit A Heart for Children, which was written as a theme tune of the eponymous action the picture. Immediately followed by a rose for you. In October 1979, the Christmas LP appeared with Andrea Jürgens, which was sold over 1.5 million copies within three months. It was for a long time the best-selling Christmas album and received an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.

She had to cancel her tour starting in autumn 2016 for health reasons in April 2017. Andrea Jurgens died in July 2017 at the age of 50 due to acute kidney failure. She was buried in the central cemetery in Recklinghausen.
