Watch List: Sabrina Starke Is A 'Dreamer'
Originally from Suriname, Dutch soul singer Sabrina Starke has gathered a fine musical resume over the years. From winning 'Talent Night' to playing the Apollo in New York, and from her multiple Dutch awards to praise from Bill Withers himself for her tribute album - 'I am impressed. Thank you Sabrina for lending your wonderful voice to these songs. You are gifted and a gift to the world' - Starke has proved the class of her soulful vocals and socially conscious musical mindset. Influenced by the likes of Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Tracy Chapman, her fusion of hip-hop, soul, jazz, folk and reggae draws on life, love and the world around her to offer a message of empowerment to listeners. 'Yellow Brick Road' (2008), 'Bags & Suitcases' (2010) and 'Outside The Box' was followed by 'Lean on Me, the songs of Bill Withers' - done in collaboration with the world famous Metropole Orchestra - which she toured across Holland in a theater production. Looking forward to her upcoming Dutch 'The Dreamers' tour and new single 'Next Man', here she stops by the Radio6NL to give a soulfully intimate rendition of her recent 'Dreamer' single.
