Bianca Shomburg (born 17 September 1974, Hiddenhausen, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a German singer, best known for her participation in the 1997 Eurovision Song Contest.

In 1996, Shomburg took part in the international TV talent contest European Soundmix Show, which she won, as a result obtaining a recording contract with producer Harold Faltermeyer and releasing her first single, "I Believe In Love". In 1997, she entered the German Eurovision selection with the Ralph Siegel-composed "Zeit" ("Time"), which had originally been written for Esther Ofarim. "Zeit" emerged the clear winner, and went forward to the 42nd Eurovision Song Contest, held in Dublin on 3 May.[1] The song's performance in the contest was however very disappointing, managing only an 18th place finish of 25 entries.[2]

Shomburg followed her Eurovision appearance with an English language album, It's My Time, which failed to sell and remains her only album to date. She was unable to make a commercial breakthrough, and subsequently largely disappeared from public view, although she was for a time a singing coach on TV reality show Deutschland sucht den Superstar. Since 2008, Shomburg has been working with country rock band Nashfield.
