Early life[edit]

After winning the X-Factor, she released her debut single, a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" as 'Lisa'. The single went straight to number one in the Dutch Top 40.[5] "Hallelujah" went double platinum within one month, selling over 100,000 copies as of today and becoming the best-selling single of 2009 in the Netherlands.[6] Her second single "No Good for Me" written by Pixie Lott and Phil Thornalley was released on 13 November 2009. Two weeks later her debut album Smoke was released. Lisa's third single from the album is "Promises, Promises" written by Pixie Lott, Martin Sutton and Chris Neill.

In August 2012 Lisa announced by Facebook and Twitter she will join Allen Stone with his European tour.

Lisa planned her second studio album in winter 2012. The first single from this album was released in the beginning of January 2013. In short time it reached number 4 in the Dutch iTunes Charts.
