Savanna – Happy Never After
Savanna – Happy Never After
Savanna was born on 11 March 1995 as the youngest child in a musical family, as both her parents are musicians and songwriters. When she was 8 she had her international TV debut on the popular Belgian and Dutch “De Wereld Van K3” (The world of K3) show, where she won the Karaoke competition.
As a very young singer-songwriter, she entered the Junior Eurovision Song Festival competition in 2005, 2006 and 2007. In 2006, she entered with a moving song she wrote herself for her beloved grandmother, called “Als Een Roos” (Like A Rose). She made it to the semi-finals.
With the support of the TV network Omroep Max (TV station Max), Savanna released “Als Een Roos” (Like A Rose) as her debut single. All of the proceeds from this release were donated to their charity for the elderly.
After her debut in front of a crowd of 14,000 Savanna decided to raise the bar even higher and auditioned for the “Bijna Beroemd” (Almost Famous), “So You Wanna Be A Pop Star”, and “Holland’s Got Talent” and became a finalist in the “Birdy Contest” of the 3FM radio station.
With her singles “Geen Kind Meer” (Not A Child Anymore), “Niet Voorbij” (It’s Not Over) and “Vlinders” (Butterflies), Savanna received more national attention. She entered the “Single Top 100” charts and had a “Sterren.nl” (Stars) hit.
It became clear that Savanna was a multi-talent who also wanted to show her acting skills. She appeared in the longest running Dutch soap “Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden” (Good Times, Bad Times) and the Dutch feature film “Razend” (Furious), which won a Rembrandt Award.
After gaining even more national attention, Savanna released bilingual singles “I Want My Radio” and “Rainbow” and these got picked up in the Benelux area.
Savanna decided to conquer the world with her English singles “Boomerang”, “I Love 2”, “Emotional Insanity” and “Kiss Me Now”. She achieved a number 1 hit with “I Love 2” in the “Kids Top 20” from the Netherlands and an iTunes hit in Estonia. With “Kiss Me Now” she achieved an iTunes hit in Hungary and with “Better Than Fun” an iTunes hit in Portugal.
In the summers of 2014 and 2015, she started cooperation with the “Disney Channel Summer Tour” and was featured as a “Disney Artist” in the hugely successful tour, where she performed throughout the Benelux for over 150.000 people.
Savanna distinguishes herself as an energetic performer who has maintained a strong connection with her fans all across the globe, who follow her every move closely and with great interest via her social media platforms. She lovingly refers to her fans as “Savannies” or “Savannators” and they have returned the favor by calling her the “Selena Gomez of the Netherlands”. They call her this not only because of her funny, warm and clever personality, but also because of her natural beauty, her girl-power attitude and her girl-next door charm.
Her growing popularity has led not only to a flourishing career as a promising singer, but also as a songwriter and a producer. Savanna is working with several major Billboard and Grammy Award –winning songwriters and producers who also work with Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, Loreen, The Vamps, Westlife, Boyzone and Celine Dion, among others.
In the meantime, even more globally noted top Billboard DJ’s have been charmed by her voice, vibe, and charisma and would like to work with Savanna in the future, just like they’ve worked with Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Little Mix, One Direction, Maroon 5, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and more!
Savanna is a true perfectionist and has combined both her singer-songwriter talents and her producer talents perfectly in more new music that’s coming soon in the future.
