Dutch vocalist Esmée Denters first came to the public’s attention after she posted video clips of herself singing on YouTube.
The videos, featuring Denters singing covers of songs by artists like Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and others, garnered millions of views and ultimately drew the attention of the music industry. In 2007, the 18-year-old native of Oosterbeek, Holland, signed with pop star Justin Timberlake’s fledgling Tennman label and began appearing with the “Sexyback” singer on tour. Her debut studio album was released in 2009. She was invited on the Oprah Winfrey show and won an MTV Europe Music Award and the European Border Breakers Award. Since her discovery, Esmée has toured the world with the likes of Neyo, Enrique Iglesias and Justin Timberlake.
Esmée decided to audition for The Voice UK in 2015 after breaking with her record label and being out of the spotlight for a while. She got all 4 coaches to turn for her Blind audition. She has over 140 million views on her YouTube channel to date.
She recently released two EP’s Independently ‘These Days’ and ‘These Days pt. 2″. And is currently working on more new material.
