In 2000 you participated in RTBF's Belgian national final as lead singer of La Teuf. How do you look back at that experience?
It was a great experience. We always had so much fun with the other members of the band. In fact, La Teuf means La fête, the party or just have fun.
La Teuf finished sixth in RTBF's Belgian national final in 2000 with the song Soldat d'amour.
