Artist of the Week – Caro Emerald

Caroline van der Leeuw was born 26 April 1981 in Amsterdam, The
Netherlands. She studied as a jazz vocalist at the Amsterdam
conservatory of music and earned her degree in 2005.

Van der Leeuw is one of the six singers in Les Elles, a close-harmony
vocal group from Amsterdam, and sings in the Philharmonic Funk
Foundation, a Funk orchestra of 44 people. She also regularly performs
background vocals on the Kinderen voor Kinderen (Children for Children) song festival.

Caro teaches singing at the singing school of Babette Labeij, one of the vocal coaches on X-Factor and vocal conductor for Kinderen voor Kinderen….and I think she totally ROCKS!  So she is my Artist of the Week.
