Leonie Meijer

This post was supposed to be online five months ago but never made it online. Leonie Meijer is an ambitious musician from Amsterdam. She is primarily known for her beautiful renditions of current pop songs by various artists and performs throughout the Netherlands in various configurations. Currently she is working hard but writing her own songs. The first time I heard Leonie sing, was at a concert of Gianmaria Testa, and she blew me away! As a little girl soon became clear that the platform has a familiar place for her. At the age of 14 she began singing, and since then it is impossible to imagine her without music. She followed several courses such as The Academy of Contemporary Music (Lelystad) and the Conservatory of Amsterdam. Private vocal coaches have made Leonie since childhood continue to develop her beautiful voice to a level that Robbie Williams to get nervous. A few years later, in 2009, she gave her first concert in Theatre Theater Bellevue, Calotte Club, with its large repertoire, Dutch. From this collaboration emerged the song "Twijfel". "Kind in de mijnen" written especially for the Sunday Foundation, a foundation established by Sander de Kramer and Hugo Borst. This was so well received that she decided to challenge this year with the Grand Prix of the Netherlands to enter, and in March 2010 it was announced that she was selected are Quarterfinal! Janco van der Kaaden (percussion) and Robert Kramer (bass) accompany her here. In this contest will play Leon in English repertory. She now is a finalist in a dutch talent tv show called The Voice Of Holland, I am glad she is finally getting the attention she deserves. Can't wait till the day that I'll be able to buy her first album, that day will surely come!
