How to pronounce Trijntje Oosterhuis (The Netherlands)?
Trijntje Oosterhuis will represent The Netherlands at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Walk Along.
A successful artist in her home country of the Netherlands and armed with a song penned by Anouk, Trijntje Oosterhuis wants to take Europe by storm in May with the song Walk Along.
Trijntje Oosterhuis (1973) comes from a creative and musical family. With her brother Tjeerd, who wrote several songs for the Song Contest, Trijntje formed the band Total Touch, which was highly successful in the Netherlands and abroad.
Trijntje excels in various musical genres, from jazz and soul and has shared the stage with great names, including Andrea Bocelli, Herbie Hancock, Khaled and Lionel Richie. She has also worked together with the famous American songwriter Burt Bacharach.
Trijntje has won several important Dutch music awards, was a judge for The Voice and sings for sold-out concert halls with the Ladies of Soul. After the successful entries in the Song Contest by Anouk (2013) and The Common Linnets - last year's runner-up, which was the best Dutch result since 1975 – Trijntje felt the time was right to enter herself. She will sing the song Walk Along, co-written by Anouk. Anouk also wrote the songs for Trijntje's new album (released in May 2015).
