A German pop music group oriented toward children, Wir 3 parlayed their airtime on the German television station Super RTL into a commercially successful recording career. Founded in 2007 and affiliated with the children's television show Toggo on Super RTL, the trio is comprised of Vera (born July 6, 1983, in Düsseldorf), Linda (born May 22, 1987, in Halberstadt), and Lina (born December 2, 1988, in Siauliai, Lithuania). They released their debut single, "Heyah Mama," in 2007 and saw it become a minor hit throughout the German-language world, charting at number 46 in Germany, number 38 in Austria, and number 62 in Switzerland. Their follow-up single, "Kuma He," was also a minor hit, charting at number 58 in Germany and number 48 in Austria. In 2008 they released another single, "Omi Ist der Hit," as well as their full-length album debut, Wir 3; both proved popular, particularly in Austria, where the single went Top Ten while the album went Top Five. A self-titled DVD was released in 2008 as well. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
