Back in 2010 Martin entered the Dutch TV program “Holland’s Got Talent”. His daughter thought he had a good chance, she believed in him and signed him up, despite his hesitations. After deliberation he decided to participate in what he describes now as a “great program”. The, at that time, unemployed baker had just embarked on a life changing road.
His journey was set to be quite impressive and see him make it all the way to the final. The final was between Martin and Elastic Double an incredible dance duo. Martin, only having low expectations for himself at the start of the show was perplexed when his name came out as the winner!
Watching his videos you can see why he made it all the way. His vocal quality and delivery is exceptional. After the show he has been inundated with requests to perform at a variety of venues and events. Below we have a video of Martin performing in the center of Maastricht, a city in The Netherlands. In the video he performs “You Raised Me Up” which became a massive hit throughout social media. The viral video opened more doors for martin as he traveled to China, Taiwan and Japan to showcase his wonderful talents.
