leeftijd angela groothuizen /\ Angela Groothuizen is a singer, artist, and television personality from the Netherlands. Her first taste of popularity came while she was a member of the Dolly Dots.
Towards the end of April, Angela made headlines when it was revealed that she had contracted the corona virus. Fortunately, she did not have any (significant) problems, but she was placed in home quarantine.
She had been vaccinated against the virus only a few days previously, using the AstraZeneca vaccine, which was later found to be ineffective. Despite the horror stories, she reported that she felt absolutely fine after the shot had been fired.
As you can see in the photograph, Angela is really pleased with her daughters. Angela and her husband Bas were blessed with the birth of two creative daughters! Nadia studies in Utrecht’s Hogeschool voor Kunsten (Hogeschool for Arts) and Lola studies film at the Netherlands Film Academy (Amsterdam).
Her goals for television extend beyond music production, and in 1981 she presents a programme called Popcorn on a Dutch television channel.
She also learns about the tape “Roberto Jacketti & The Scooters” while riding in the Dolly Dots limousine, where the regular driver, Jaap Booy, plays a demo cassette of the tape of his son, Jeroen Booy, which she listens to during the ride. Groothuizen becomes really enthused and expresses his intention to attend a concert.
She finally continues to accompany her discovery and, in 1984, collaborates with Spargo guitarist Ruud Mulder on the production of Roberto Jacketti & The Scooters’ debut album, Time, which was released in the Netherlands.
Following the disbanding of the Dolly Dots in 1988, Groothuizen went on to study music for 3.5 years, penning songs for artists such as Children for Children and Carmen Gomes, among others. At the Worldpressgala in 1989, Angela gives a solo performance.
She is a member of the theatre ensemble Purple, with whom she is currently on a tour of the United States. She also appears on stage with Adelheid Roosen and Leoni Jansen on a regular basis, as well.
The programme De Rotonde (with repertoire by lyricist Rob Crispijn), with which she performs ten times in the Stadsschouwburg in Amsterdam, was broadcast in 1991 by the NOS. She records two CDs with the band Angela & the Rude, then in 1996 she releases her first solo album, “Groothuizen.”
“Spelen” and “Wegwijs in Ikea” are two theatre programmes that Groothuizen has produced. In 1994, she makes her stage debut as part of the theatre programme “Spelen.” In addition, between 1996 and 1997, she appears in the film “Wegwijs in Ikea” (40 performances). This programme is a blend of cabaret and rock ‘n roll.
