14-12-2008

Singer Karel Gott has won the Český slavík (Czech Nightingale) award for the 34th time in a career spanning five decades. The multi-million selling 69-year-old collected the men’s prize in person at Prague’s State Opera on Saturday night. The women’s award went to Lucie Bílá, while the group prize also went to last year’s winner, Kabát. The Český slavík awards, originally known as Zlatý slavík, have been running since 1962. The winners are voted by members of the public.
