“Recently appeared on The Voice UK , Annelies ticks every box required to be a classical crossover star. She has performed alongside Charlotte Church and shared the stage with Hayley Westenra, Jonathan Ansell and Faryl Smith. Annelies'’ vocals were outstanding during her visit to Proms on the Prom and the crowd absolutely loved her performance, as did I.”
“One’s a 20-year-old classical crossover singer from Cardifff who’s already played Wembley, the other a heavy rocker from Rhyl who’s one part Stereophonics, one part Guns ‘n’ Roses. But the one thing they’ve got in common is that they’re both hoping to become the final two Welsh contestants to make it through the blind auditions of The Voice. First up is soprano-voiced Annelies from Pengam Green, who should have the ready-made support of any homegrown rugby fans watching given that she belted out the Welsh national anthem before our lads’ clash against England at Twickenham during last year’s Six Nations tournament.”

“Twenty year old Annelies may not be a girl you have heard of yet, but she ticks every box required to be a classical crossover star. She's been singing since the tender age of seven and is no stranger to performing, having done so in front of tens of thousands of people. She has shared the stage with Hayley Westenra, Jonathan Ansell and Faryl Smith in July 2010. Like Church and the many child stars that came after her, Annelies can boast of a precocious singing talent. Her notes are on point and she has a mature and rich texture whilst maintaining a soothing tone that has mainstream appeal. It's difficult to judge what repertoire Annelies will explore, but she does have songwriters on board and is already performing original songs at her live events. She's a marketer's dream, and she is sure to do wonders for fans of Hayley Westenra and Faryl Smith.”
