Wolfgang Hildebrandt (born 29 June), is an German singer-songwriter, musician, Producer, philanthropist, actor, and Founder of Hollywood Hills Records. Wolfgang Hildebrandt was raised in Euskirchen, Germany, where thanks to the positive influence of his father, he began his musical career on the piano and guitar at the age of six. Wolfgang went on to study music intensively over the next 14 years, which landed him the position of lead singer for his church choir and later Choir Director..
Early on in his career, Wolfgang chose to turn down a prestigious position of “Lead Singer” for a German Military Band to focus on his lifelong ambition to promote “World Peace” through his very own unique interpretation of music. Wolfgang’s success, along with his own collaborations and re-recording of noted cover songs paid off when he was offered his first contract with EMI records in 1997. He maintained a very successful relationship with EMI Records through to 2005. Wolfgang has also performed in front of Pope John II and shared a stage with Andrea Bocelli in Paris, France.
WHEN WOLFGANG HILDEBRANDT TAKES THE STAGE ITS BEEN TAKEN CHARGE OF FOR THE BEST
01 On September 11, 2001, Wolfgang composed the European song "Lets Build A House of Peace" and dedicated it to the people of New York. On this day that lives on forever in the minds of so many Americans, Wolfgang took it upon himself to motivate and inspire young, enthusiastic NYPD Officers to come together in a spirit of unity, and in their spare time team up with Wolfgang to record the chorus and back up vocals for this very touching song. Wolfgang and the newly forme NYPD Choir recorded this song in New York. The German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, then gave the CD as a gift from the German Government to then US President George W. Bush.

The Earth Society Foundation, founded by John McConnell and Margaret Meade to perform yet again at the United Nations, invited Wolfgang once again. During the early hour of 148 A.M., on March 20, 2008 Wolfgang’s magnificent voice filled the UN Peace Garden with the spirituality of unity during the annual Peace Bell Ringing Ceremony commemorating the original Earth Day. Wolfgang's political and spiritual beliefs are greatly inspired by the man that he still views to this day as his mentor, the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He places his keenly discerning artistic ability in the service of helping others and spreading peace.
