Anna (10 years old) and Senna (11) have been best friends throughout their whole lives. As they were babies, they laid together in a baby crib because of their mothers who have been best friends ever since they were little kids.
For Anna and Senna, that was the reason to write together a song about their own family for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The song tells all about their stressing mothers, the busy fathers and their annoying brothers and sister.
But in the end, despite all of this, they love and adore their family very much. With this song they won the Dutch national selection for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and will now represent The Netherlands in Minsk.
In My Family, Anna plays her bright pink violin that was specially made for her. Anna has been taking violin lessons for three years now and her great example is none other than the Dutch violinist Janine Jansen. Senna loves singing and is a big fan of Beyoncé.
Making music together is what they love to do the most! And if they’re not singing, Senna likes to play field hockey and Anna loves to ride horses.
After winning the Dutch national selection, they have little time for these things, because by now they have become famous Dutch people. This means, besides going to school, a busy schedule with a lot of performances and guest appearances in television shows.
Now they are ready to follow Ralf Mackenbach, the winner of last year’s competition, in his footsteps and give all of their best on stage in Minsk, with their biggest fans on the stands: their own family!
Anna & Senna worked on their song together with all-round songwriter and music producer Tjeerd Oosterhuis.
Tjeerd is well-known in and outside of the Netherlands because of his career with the pop-soulband Total Touch and his work with de crème de la crème of the Dutch popular music scene.
With the (Junior) Eurovision Eurovision Song Contest, Tjeerd has been very successful too, not only did he write songs for the Dutch entry of the Eurovision Song Contest, he also produced for several Dutch participants including for the winner of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2009, Ralf !
