Final 8 of The Voice of Holland
This year, The Voice introduced a new round for the Finals. Names were drawn by a coach in which they chose who they wanted their team member to battle. Lucky for me (or not so lucky as it would be;) ..I was paired against my closest friend in the competition, the man who broke a record for The Voice with his Blind Audition getting over 11 million views on Youtube. Mitchell Brunings, Bob Marley reincarnated! An incredible voice that barely holds a candle to the incredible person he is. Honored to have him as a friend.
I admit, at this very moment pictured above, I felt I didn’t stand a chance against such a crowd favorite, especially as the only foreigner left in the competition. Though it ended up being surprisingly close until the final tally, it was the end of my road on this particular adventure. What an incredible journey it was! I could not be more grateful for every opportunity that has come from being a part of an Emmy winning show!
Brabant Hall Concert
Just after Christmas, the final 8 put on a couple concerts at the massive Brabanthallen in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. An awesome turnout of our greatest fans to cheer on as we performed our chart toppers from the season.
To capture the energy & massiveness of the event, we had to snap some selfies! 😉
As some of you know, our contract requested us to take some downtime to allow focus on the fabulous winner, Julia van der Toorn. Now that time is up and I’m excited to announce I can finalize my NEW ALBUM!
I’ve been very busy writing and recording demos for it with well respected Dutch producer, Tjeerd van Zanen. Now that the songs are written, I’m gearing up my crowd-funding campaign for which I hope to achieve my goal to complete the album with your help! Please stay tuned.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
From sea to shining sea my gigs are taking me! I just returned to Europe from a gig in Costa Rica where I was delighted to make new friends and fans! My favorite part, besides the beautiful sunshine, was the little fans who weren’t at all shy in singing along and making requests. Soul food for me! Love.
Ring-a-ding ding! During my few moments of downtime, I took the opportunity to indulge in some personal time and get married to the man of my dreams! My heart is so full of love, happiness & gratitude for being able to share all of life’s breathtaking adventures with such an incredible man. We even have the chance to work together for some of my shows, as he is a gifted photographer!
From one life changing moment to another…. here we go! ♡
