Singer Karel Gott wins Czech Nightingale prize for 38th time

Karel Gott has won the Český slavík (Czech Nightingale) award once again. The 74-year-old pop singer has won the prize, which is decided by a public vote, 38 times since it was launched in 1963 but last year was beaten to it by Tomáš Klus. Mr. Gott did not attend Saturday night’s ceremony at Prague’s State Opera as he was touring in Germany, where he is also very popular. Awards in other categories went to Lucie Bílá and the group Kryštof.
