Moreover, Edsilia Rombley will perform a special jubilee-concert on Friday 12 may 2017, in Royal Theatre Carré, Amsterdam, marking her 20th anniversary as a solo artist. She began singing in the R&B girlband Dignity in 1995. Her solo career started in 1996, after winning the Dutch TV-show Soundmixshow, followed in 1997 with her victory at the European Soundmixshow, both with a cover of Oleta Adams‘ song I just had to hear your voice.
In 1998, Edsilia Rombley represented the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest in Birmingham, the United Kindom, reaching a respectable 4th place with her song Hemel en aarde, earning 150 points.
The singer returned to the Eurovision stage in 2007, singing On top of the world (originally in Dutch: Nooit meer zonder jou) at the ESC in Helsinki, Finland. Unfortunately, she did not go through to the Grand Final, reaching a 21st place in the Semi-Final, with 38 points. However, she surprised the public by announcing the Douze Points from the Netherlands during the Grand Final 2007, together with former commentator Paul de Leeuw.
