Dutch rendition of Eva Cassidy songs

Ida de Nijs, born in The Netherlands, was already singing as a child on homemade stages in the living room. Her education after high school was the Amsterdam college for Individual Art Education. Singing in background choirs, participating in cabaret and performing in local pubs made her early years a festivity. And then her children were born, she moved to Belgium eleven years ago and from that moment on she only sang at home for her daughters and friends. But now the children grow up and the butterflies are back. For her recent album Zandloper Ida recorded two songs in the style of her idol Eva Cassidy.

She translated Claire Hamill’s ‘You Take My Breath Away’ into: ‘Ademloos’ and Patsy Cline’s Walking After Midnight became ‘De schaduw van jou’.
