She performed together with well known people as Dame Vera Lynn, Thijs van Leer, the Polish Nightingales and Princess Irene.

For 7 years, she and her husband Paul gave “the hour of the heart” concerts throughout the Netherlands. As “To Be” she and Paul internationally performed for the top of business and Government agencies for many years. As a songwriter she and her husband produced 5 albums with their own music. As a poet, she also published two books. Carla: “I just love to express my feelings and experiences in lyrics and songs and share them with the audience.”

From childhood on I always had 3 passions: making people happy, singing and writing. I am really living my dream. To be able to live my dream together with the ones I love most goes beyond any expectation. I feel really blessed.
