Animation for Esmee Denters’ concert in ‘Ahoy’.
I am Esmee Denters and this is my story.
It all started 10 years ago when I decided to upload a couple of Covers on to Youtube from my bedroom in Holland.
Totally unexpected my YouTube account grew to millions of views over the entire world. I couldn’t believe it. Record labels became interested and eventually I signed a record deal with Justin Timberlake.
I got to release my first album ‘Outta Here’ and travelled all over the world to perform at the most amazing venue’s. All my dreams seemed to come true.
But then reality kicked in. After putting out 3 singles my record label told me that they weren’t planning on releasing another album.
Their decision came as a total shock to me. I was devastated. What was I supposed to do now?
The only thing I did know was that I was determined to not let it get me down. I decided to pack my bags and move to London where I wanted to rediscover my self as an artist.
Then I realized that I had to start living to be able to figure out who I was and what I wanted.
For the first time I allowed myself to go out, have fun. I made friends and fell in love. London slowly started to feel like home
While I was discovering myself slowly my passion for music started coming back.
I felt like I needed to take a risk and got the idea to audition for “the voice UK”. It was probably the scariest thing I have ever done
But it was a platform where I could share my story and let my viewers know that I never stopped making music and I wanted to continue to do so.
Now 10 years later I got the amazing opportunity to perform again at one of Holland’s biggest venue’s ‘Ahoy’.
This time around I feel like I have a vision of my own and this time, I feel ready. I will stay true to who I am and let you know that you are the reason why I sing. Will you come with me?
This is ‘The Road to Ahoy’ .
