This year's Dutch entry Shine, has just been covered by the Feestpietenband under the title Sint, with lyrics written by Tony Neef, a well-known musical-actor, singer and songwriter in The Netherlands.
It is actually the song chosen by SiSint Productionsfor the annual operation on Sinterklaas, a Dutch public holiday on December 5th. The song will be sungon a concert next November 22, in Beverwijk.The group has received the support of Gordon, one of the three Toppers (or more precisely, "former member", as Gordon announced he leaves the group some weeks ago).We recently reported that Gerard Joling (ex-Toppers) topped the Dutch sales list with Engel van mijn hart, the song that placed second in the 2009 Dutch selection.
Meanwhile, Gordon released his own Dutch version of the song that placed 3rd, No one loves me like you, under the title Niemand lacht zoals jij.
