Swiss Singer Who Covered METALLICA's 'The Unforgiven' Meets LARS ULRICH; Video Available

Bespectacled 19-year-old Swiss pop singer Stefanie Heinzmann who last year released a cover of the METALLICA classic "The Unforgiven" had a chance to meet METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich for a quick one-on-one chat about her version of the song. Watch video footage of the meeting below. Also available is Heinzmann's official video for "The Unforgiven", which was released as a single at the end of October.

Heinzmann started her career as a singer in 2005 in a rock band called BIGFISCH. In summer 2007 she applied for a talent contest hosted by Stefan Raab on the late-night show "TV Total" and was selected as one of the 20 finalists. With interpretations of soul, jazz and funk classics by the likes of Macy Gray, Norah Jones and Joss Stone she reached the final show on January 10, 2008. There she finally defeated the remaining three competitors in the televoting, winning a contract with Universal Music. Her final song, "My Man Is a Mean Man" — composed by Swedish producers Gustav Jonsson, Tommy Tysper and Marcus Sepehrmanesh — went on sale the day after the final. One week after its release the single debuted straight on top of the Swiss single chart, also reaching the top 10 in Austria and Germany. Her debut album was released on March 7, 2008.
