Celebrities in Switzerland

There are more than 162 celebrities of some type who have lived or are still living in Switzerland. Here is a quick run down of some of the most well known celebs around in the singing world.

The American singer Tina Turner has lived in Zurich since 1986, on the Goldküste, the most fashionable district of the Swiss economic capital. I've personally been past her beautiful house on the water. The area is simply magnificant.

The Quebecois singer Celine Dion often comes to Crans-Montana in the Valais of Switzerland. Céline Dion, spends most of her time performing in Las Vegas.

The English singer Phil Collins has lived in Switzerland since 1994. Born in London in 1951, he performed as an actor-singer in a London production at the age of 13. He and his wife initially lived in Hermance in the chic suburb of Geneva, before moving to Bugnins in the canton of Vaud, where they still live with their two children.

The famous country singer Shania Twain lives in a manor near Montreux in French-speaking Switzerland with her husband and producer, Mutt Lange. The castle they live in is simply marvelous.

The most famous opera singer in the world, Barbara Hendricks, lives in Clarens, on the outskirts of Montreux. Barbara Hendricks was born in 1948 in Stephens, Arkansas, but made her debute in San Francisco.

In 1982, the English pop star David Bowe moved to upper Lausanne in Switzerland to find a haven of stability and fade into anonymity. He purchased an early twentieth-century residence called the Château du Signal, which was built by a Russian prince and is decorated with woodwork and ornate faience.

The singer of the legendary Swedish band ABBA settled in Switzerland after the group split up. She immediately appreciated what Switzerland had to offer. Frida lives in the canton of Fribourg in a castle that belonged to her late husband, Prince Russo.
