5 January 2019 – Croatian all-girls pop-rock band Luminize, made up of four girls from Crikvenica in Croatia – Marcela, Matilda, Irena and Tea -continue to create history on The Voice of Holland.
After earlier becoming the first group in the history of the show to pass through the auditions phase on the blind with their version of the song ‘Lady Marmelade’, the girls have continued to impress on the show and last night created some more history.
The Croatians delighted the judges and crowd to win the first band battle ever on The Voice of Holland. Squaring off against the band Hard2get, Luminize got the best of battle singing the Bruno Mars hit ‘Runaway baby’ and advanced into the next round.
“You not only look and sing great, but you play excellent also. You have all that it takes and you really are unique,” said Dutch singer Waylon, who the girls selected as their mentor.
This year the girls, who live in the Netherlands, will celebrated their 18-year anniversary as a group.
The girls moved from Crikvenica in Croatia to live in the Netherlands to pursue their career. They were invited to perform at the ‘The Life I Live’ festival on Kingsday in honour of the King’s birthday in The Hague last year.,
Luminize regularly play at venues and festivals in the Netherlands and throughout Europe, and are known for their dynamic and powerful live performance. Their singles ‘Get it Back’ and ‘Kill it with Love’ led to international deals with Universal Music, AT bookings and the Swedish X-Level.
