He started his career with the song Disco a la carte in 1979, but had his breaktrough with a song in Dutch: “Alles kan een mens gelukkig maken”, written by “Het Goede Doel”. After his flashing start in Dutch, he went on singing in English.
In the mid 90’s he had huge succeses in the Netherlands with the songs “For a date with you”, “Just say hello” and “Crazy way about you”.
After a relatively slow period until the start of the 21st century, René formed the “Toppers” together with Gordon and Gerard Joling. The Toppers have performed at the Amsterdam ArenA several years in a row, singing evergreens and sing-along-songs.
During this period, René also starred in a reality soap around him and his family. ClearartWide ThumbFanart Banner User Comments
