WENDE WINS THE ANNIE M.G. SCHMIDT PRIZE

Wende was awarded the Annie M. G. Schmidt Prize for her song ‘Voor Alles’, presented in the Theater Bellevue.

Wende composed the music for this song upon a text by Joost Zwagerman, who passed away in 2015. The Annie M. G. Schmidt Prize, an initiative from Buma Cultuur and the Amsterdam Kleinkunst Festival, is the prize for the best original Dutch language theatrical song from the preceding season. This is the second time during her career that Wende has received this prize. She previously won in 2007 for her song ‘De Wereld Beweegt’.
‘Voor Alles’ comes from her album MENS, released last month, in which she performs all of the songs from her highly praised show of the same name from 2017. The show can be seen in May in Theater Carré, and in the open air theaters Capera in Bloemendaal and De Kersouwe in Heeswijk-Dinther. In the coming autumn Wende will perform these songs alongside other works at a number of club shows. Today the prize-winning song ‘Voor Alles’ has been released as a single, and can be listened to and downloaded via Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon and Apple Music.
