John de Bever (Netherlands)
In July 1979, De Bever was discovered as a singer at the age of 14 by Pierre Kartner during a performance at Nijmegen Four Days Marches. The song Als I Later Trouw, which Kartner wrote for him, hit the tipparade in March 1980. Three more singles and an LP followed. After this, De Bever decided to temporarily stop his singing career and concentrate on soccer.
