Biography

Jetty Paerl (born 27 May 1921, Amsterdam) is a Dutch singer, who was most famous in the 1950s and 1960s. She was married to Dutch artist Cees Bantzinger.

During the World War II, she lived in London, as the Netherlands was occupied by Nazi Germany. There she participated in the broadcasts of Radio Oranje, the Dutch government in exile, and was known as Jetje van Radio Oranje (“Jetty of Radio orange”).

In 1956 she represented the Netherlands in the first Eurovision Song Contest with the song “De Vogels Van Holland” (The Birds of Holland) written by Annie M.G. Schmidt and composed by Cor Lemaire. At the time the contest was only broadcast via radio, and only the winning song was announced.
