US singer and actor David Hasselhoff returned to the city where he symbolically sang for freedom in front of half a million people after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.


But this time the "Baywatch" and "Knightrider" star was in the German capital to lend star power backing to protesters of plans to remove part of the Wall's longest surviving stretch.


Hasselhoff has a large and loyal fan base in Germany and is remembered for his now legendary performance of his song "Looking for Freedom" at the iconic Brandenburg Gate on December 31st, 1989.
