Lou is the stage name of Louise Hoffner (born October 27, 1963 in Waghäusel), a German pop singer. She was the sixth child of her parents brothers and sisters. She toured with her band for 15 years, in Germany as well as abroad.
Lou participated in the 2001 Eurovision national finals, coming in third place. Shortly before Christmas 2002, composer Ralph Siegel asked her if she would be interested in competing in the national finals again with “Let’s Get Happy”, a song he had written with lyricist Bernd Meinunger.
Lou won the German 2003 finals on March 7, which qualified her to represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in Riga where she came in 11th place. In March 2006, she made a guest appearance at that year’s German Eurovision preselection, singing “Let’s Get Happy” in a medley of past German Eurovision entries.
