Kizzy McHugh

Kizzy McHugh is a Dutch singer, actress and presenter. Born in Rotterdam in 1979, she was raised on Curacao, where she started participating in musicals, theatre shows and ballet recitals as a child. Her big breakthrough came in 1996, when she won the National Song Contest and was Curacao’s entry at the Caribbean Song Contest, ending third. She graduated from Berklee College of Music and performed for Bill Clinton. In the Dutch Antilles, she became best known for her hit song Pia Di Galina, and as a presenter of a children’s show for TeleCuraçao. For a few years, she lived in Boston, where she worked as a singer and tv-presenter. Moving back to the Netherlands in 2009, she signed a record contract two years later and, in 2012, released her debut album Unspoken Rhyme.
