In 2018, Babette became a published author in the Netherlands when writing her first book ZING! Babette grew up in the eighties with music by greats such as Bryan Ferry, Duran Duran and Kate Bush. In the nineties, she immersed herself wholeheartedly in the Amsterdam music scene by singing with Herman Brood, Loïs Lane and Trijntje Oosterhuis, as well as many other Dutch artists.
For Babette it is simple: do you want to sing? Sing! You don't have to be Pavarotti or Whitney Houston to make your voice be heard. Through her book ZING! Babette wants everyone to experience how liberating singing is – whether you like classical, jazz, or pop: open your mouth and sing!
