Biography

Aneta Langerová (born 26 November 1986) is a Czech pop singer. Born in Benešov, Czech Republic and grew up in Říčany, she first rose to fame at age 17 as the first winner of Česko hledá SuperStar, the Czech version of Pop Idol, in June 2004. Later that year she released her first album, Spousta andělů, which became a long-term bestseller in the Czech Republic. She has since released two further albums and is currently one of the most popular musical artists in the Czech Republic.

In 2005 and 2006, she ranked first in the category 'Best Female Singer' in the Czech music poll Český slavík. In 2004, 2007 and 2012 she placed first in the same category of the Anděl Awards, organized by the Czech Academy of Popular Music.

She finished in second place in the Czech version of Dancing with the Stars - StarDance in 2010.

Biography

Langerová grew up in Říčany, a town in the Central Bohemian Region. At age six, she began studying piano, and at age eight, she began taking guitar classes and singing in a choir with a local choir instructor. Langerová has credited her mother, who played piano and guitar around her house when she was growing up, with nurturing her musical talent.

In her teenage years, Langerová became more serious about music. At age 14, Langerová joined a local band called SPB in Sázava and then participated in and won several small TV talent contests (the Doremi TV competition and the Star Starters (in Czech: Rozjezdy pro hvězdy) contest) before participating in the first season of Česko hledá SuperStar, a popular Czech television show based on the Pop Idol format.

Langerová won the Česko hledá SuperStar competition with a 79 percent vote share in June 2004. In the course of the next three months, she quickly recorded her first album, Spousta andělů (Many Angels), composed of songs written by professional pop songwriters. The album enjoyed chart success in the Czech Republic, remaining at the top for 11 weeks in 2005. In 2005 and 2006, Langerová toured, released a live album and DVD and was closely involved with the Světluška Foundation, a charitable organization that works with blind children. Langerová played multiple benefit concerts for the organization and released a single, "Píseň pro světlušku" (Song for Světluška, firefly in Czech), to raise money for the group.

In 2007, Langerová released her second studio album, Dotyk (Contact), which showed her abilities beyond singing: she wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the album and played guitar, piano, and bass on several tracks.

Personal life

Langerová is openly lesbian. She lived with Czech documentarist Olga Špátová.

Dotyk

Released 21 May 2007, Dotyk is a departure from Langerová's previous efforts, dismissed by many as the product of slick production and professional songwriters.

Langerová plays guitar, bass, and piano on a handful of tracks. "Dotyk" was produced by Jan P.
