Corinna May (born Corinna Meyer) is a blind German singer. From an early age she was interested in music due to her father's love of jazz. She also sang in a school choir and a gospel choir. After several talent competitions, she released her debut album in 1997, which was self-produced. Two years later, she released an album called "Wie ein Stern".
Her first attempt at representing her home country at Eurovision came in 1999. She won but the song was later disqualified as had already been performed by another artist. She returned a year later and finished in second place. Returning two years later, it was third time lucky as she final won the right to represent her home country. However, the song, which was one of the pre-Contest favourites, finished in a disappointing 21st place.
In March 2006, she made a guest appearance at that year's German Eurovision pre-selection, singing her 2002 entry in a medley of past German entries. She also accompanied comedian Hape Kerkeling in a rendition of Italian Eurovision winning song Insieme: 1992. In late 2006, due to poor sales she was dropped by her record label.
