Carla Lalli music: ‘The World Is Beautiful’
Carla is not the only artist to come out in support of a gay marriage bill in Germany.
And while the music world has taken a knee in protest, the country’s main music industry has been relatively quiet, especially in comparison to the rest of the world.
The European Music Council said that “since last year, the Council has received a record number of complaints from music publishers, producers and artists, which means that music is more and more likely to be censored.”
In Germany, however, the response has been mostly positive.
“The support of music companies is not only positive, but it is also very well received by the public,” Rolf Neuhoff, president of the European Music Federation, told The Local in an interview.
“Music publishers have shown a willingness to stand up for their rights, and music artists have demonstrated a willingness and an ability to speak up for themselves.
I am not saying that the artists themselves have done anything wrong.
But they have done so with a level of strength and professionalism that has surprised me.”
In a statement, the European Council for the Arts said it “will continue to support the legislation to give more rights to artists in the face of this new situation,” adding that it hopes “all parties will see the same positive outcome.”
However, there are still plenty of artists who say they would not have agreed to participate if they knew they would have to take a stand on a matter that they are against.
“It is a big step, but the answer is not to do it, and there is no solution in Europe,” one of the artists who spoke to The Local said.
“We all feel very much a part of this society, and if we do not feel that we belong, we will not go along with this.”

“There is a lot of people who will say, ‘You can’t do this, it won’t sell, and you’ll be punished’,” the musician who did not want to be named told The Daily Beast.
Another artist who did agree to participate told The Guardian that he would still take a stance on the gay-marriage bill. “
In terms of the whole boycott, I’m not saying it’s going to happen, but in the end I think that if the artists and musicians decide that this is the right thing for them, and they do what they think is best for the industry, I would definitely support them in that decision.”
Another artist who did agree to participate told The Guardian that he would still take a stance on the gay-marriage bill.
“If it’s something that is going to create more problems in the industry and the music business, I think we all know that,” he said.
The musician, who works in the Netherlands and is not on a record contract, said that while he has been “out loud” in support for gay marriage, he had not made any decisions about which artists he would play with or how he would tour.
“To say that you have to have a record deal is a little bit naive, and I’ve been playing music with a lot more people than the one I am now,” he added.
