ABC-Wednesday / Round 21 –X /
My 174-th entry – bijdrage / My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today, in the week of 21-X, I want to introduce Sandra Reemer to you. Yes her name does not start with an X but…
She had a period in which she changed her artistsname in to Xandra and bearing that name she represented The Netherlands in the Eurovision Songcontest in 1979 with the song “Colorado”.

She was born on October 17, 1950 in Indonesia and at the age of 1 she and her parents moved to The Netherlands. She died on June 6, 2017 due to breastcancer.  She already performed in her childhood, later on she was part of a duo, a trio, a band and also went solo. Besides that she did many other things, for instance a host of multiple very large Dutch weekly tv-shows.

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!

      ;-) I know her as Sandra… the x-change was temporary

    Oh …my goodness, I remember her as Sandra:) When she won the the Eurovision contest, I lived in Holland:) In the USA we don’t have anything comparable, maybe because singing is at a very high level here – and there are oodles of singers.
    A special Christmas day to you and yours Melody! And thank you for hosting ABC:)
