The Voice of Germany: The Highlights is a compilation album which gathers songs performed by the contestants of the PRO7 casting show The Voice of Germany during the show's first five live shows (the live shows were part of the format's third stage, following the "blind auditions" and the "battle round"). The record features tracks by 18 singers who perform newly recorded studio versions of the songs they presented during the show (the original compositions from the finale are not included, however). Winner Ivy Quainoo covers Otis Redding's "Hard to Handle," while runner-up Kim Sanders covers Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly with His Song," third-place winner Michael Schulte sings Lana Del Rey's "Video Games," and fourth-place winner Max Giesinger performs Coldplay's "Fix You." Other singers include Mic Donet, Ole Feddersen, Sharron Levy, Behnam Moghaddam, and Jasmin Graf.
