Bernadette in 1983
|Birth name||Bernadette Kraakman|
|Born||March 1, 1959|
Bernadette was not a well-known name when she took part with two songs in the 1983 Dutch Eurovision selection, but she emerged the narrow victor (by just one point) with "Sing Me a Song", which despite the title was sung in Dutch. She went forward to the 28th Eurovision Song Contest, held in Munich on 23 April, where "Sing Me a Song" finished a solid seventh of the 20 entries.
Following her unsuccessful partnership with Ingrid Simons in duo Double Trouble in 1986, Bernadette became a voiceover and backing singer, having worked with artists such as Harry Slinger and Rob de Nijs.
Bernadette was the voice of Snow White in the Dutch dubbing of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937 film).
