Angelique Koorndijk


Angelique Koorndijk (Dordrecht, 25 September 1971) is a Dutch Gospel/R&B singer. She started her career on the Dutch 'Soundmixshow - a show where vocalists would perform imitating famous artist. The show is famously hosted by Henny Huisman and responsible for artists such as Edsilia Rombley, Marco Borsato and Glennis Grace. Angelique participated in this show in 1989 as Anita Baker. In 1999 she signed her first record deal under the moniker Shanique, releasing the singles 'Never Wanna Feel This Way Again' & 'Spend Da Night', which weren't very successful. In 2006 she shot to national fame with her participation in the 3rd season of Idols, the Dutch version of American Idol. Angelique finished in 4th place, with the eventual winner being Raffaëla who won the final from Floortje. After this adventure and with this exposure, it was her turn to release an album. Her debut album 'Free', a gospel album featuring both English and a few Dutch tracks, was released shortly after. The album features several notable covers from artists such as Yolanda Adams (Don't Give Up), Christina Aguilera (Mercy On Me) & CeCe Winans (Well Alright). In recent years, not much has been heard from Angelique. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
