Five years after André van Duin, Sonneveld sings André van Duin with new music. The song Forever is a ‘loving ode’ to his late husband Martin Elferink and their lives together. The author of the song is none other than Top 2000 phenomenon Danny Vera.
Vera (Roller coaster) wrote the music and soon had Van Duin in in his head. “This is a song for André van Duin. He could sing this so nicely.” André van Duin himself was also enthusiastic and made the song a personal story about love, lack and farewell.
Van Duin lost his husband Martin to cancer in early 2020. Later that year, the 73-year-old comedian himself was hit by cancer. In Matthijs continues, he said frankly: “You all die once. If it had come to an end now, I would have been at peace with it.”
Broadcasting BnnVara tells De Cceit that Van Duin will return next Saturday in the programme of Matthijs van Nieuwkerk. Accompanied by Danny Vera and the Sven Hammond Bigband, Van Duin will perform the song there for the first time.
The proceeds of the single Forever goes to KWF Cancerbestrijding.
