Subject: Dutch singer Sandra Reemer dies at 66.

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/06/17 at 9:17 pm

Dutch singer and television presenter Sandra Reemer has died after a long battle with breast cancer aged 66. She has represented the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest on three separate occasions, tying with Corry Brokken for most appearances representing the country. In 1972, she sang the song "Als het om de liefde gaat" in a duet with Dries Holten (she was credited as "Sandra," he was credited as "Andres"), receiving fourth place. In 1976, Reemer performed solo credited under her real name, singing the song "The Party's Over," which made it to ninth place. In 1979, she was credited as "Xandra" and sang the song "Colorado," which placed twelfth. She later returned to the contest to sing backing vocals (uncredited) for the Dutch entry in 1983, "Sing Me A Song" performed by Bernadette.

Thanks for sharing, Philip. I didn't expect this to make international headlines, as she never actually won the comptetion.

The news came as a shock to me, because I didn't even know she was terminally ill. RIP Sandra - The party's really over now. :\'(
