Laura Omloop with ‘Meer’
Do you remember Laura Omloop, the cute yodeling girl who represented Belgium in Junior Eurovision 2009? It’s been five years and she’s come a long way since her ‘Zo Verliefd’ days. Now 15 years old and represented by Warner Music Benelux, she has just released a new single called ‘Meer’. The song is more mature than her previous singles, she wants to make it clear that she has transitioned from child to teen singer, though she is still not quite an “adult singer”. She will release a full album in Belgium and the Netherlands on 14th November, written together with Jeroen Swinnen (Daan, Superdiesel, Novastar, Vive La Fête). It is expected to be entirely sung in Dutch. Jessurun Martin, President Warner Music Benelux says:
“We are very proud of this collaboration. Laura has a beautiful voice, a lot of talent and a seasoned performer to add to our line-up. We want to build a long term career with her, not only in Flanders but also in the Netherlands. This contract with Laura is not a one-time thing, but part of a commitment from Warner Music Benelux. We believe that investing in local talent is the right way for the Flemish music industry to grow”.
