Surely, in the pop-universe, anything is possible...
but the fact that someone from Nettetal near M�nchengladbach, in Germany could start a worldwide career is perhaps a little unbelievable, but true!
The fact that a boy from Niederrhein started producing hits which circle the whole planet, from clubs to charts is one of the biggest success stories of German pop music history.
Now, after seven years of huge success, and over 17 million CDs sold internationally, all the hits are together compiled onto one album, SASH!-The Greatest Hits / Encore Une Fois. All the songs on the album have entered many charts all over the world, many making top ten positions. SASH! entered into a business-class league of charts where normally only Madonna, Ricky Martin or U2 would dominate.

At twelve he scored 65 goals in just one season and he received an attractive offer from Borussia M�nchen-gladbach, but his father put a stop to this professional soccer career by refusing to take his son to training sessions several times a week. Sascha spent a lot of his free time at home, and spend most of it with playing around with an organ, which he had received as a present at nine years old. Smart and sassy, he soon discovered that he was able to improve his pocket money with his musical talent. Every year he went on a skiing holiday with his parents and he found out to his delight that the other hotel guests would pay huge tips as soon as he started playing little songs on his organ.
