you have been going through these stages
now it's time to turn the pages
We're gonna stand in line
and not give up but walk that road
that everybody goes,
through lights and shadows
Eurovision 2017 Netherlands: OG3NE - "Lights And Shadows"
The song is written and composed by Rory de Kievit and Rick Vol. Rick Vol is the father of the three sisters. He has written the song "Magic" for the final of The Voice of Holland (2014) and is responsible for a couple of songs on OG3NE's debut album "We got this".
OG3NE is a Dutch girl band consisting of the three sisters Lisa, Amy, and Shelley Vol (Amy and Shelley are twins). The O stands for their mother's blood type and G3NE stands for the gene they share since they are sisters. They represented Netherlands at Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the song "Adem In, Adem Uit". In 2014 they won the fifth season of The Voice of Holland, and became the first trio in the world to win The Voice.
