Alana Dante biography

Producer and arrangements : Peter Neefs

Alana Dante (real name : Christel Hoogewijs) was born in Belgium on the 1st December 1972 or 1969, according to biographies.

At the age of 4, she started to sing along with the songs she heard on the radio. She also made up her own songs. When she was 12, she went to the music academy where she studied violin and took singing lessons during almost 8 years. After she had left school, she performed at karaoke club, disco's, etc... Where she soon was discovered by the Belgian dance-producer Peter Neefs.

Peter immediately recognized Alana's talent and they buried themselves in the studio to find songs suited for Alana's voice. Their first choice was Celine Dion's worldwide hit Think Twice, which was Alana's first single released.

Her first album was released in 1996. It sold pretty good in Germany and was released in India under ToCo license, it sold there 106 000 copies.

February 21st 1999 Alana won the pre-selections for Eurovision 1999, with the single Get Ready For The Sunsand.
