Jérémie has recently rose to fame thanks to his victory on the ninth season of The Voice of Belgique – internationally known as The Voice. The young singer won the competition with 53% of the votes

Makiese is 21 years-old and was born in Antwerp and soon moved to Berchem-Sainte-Agathe, then to Dilbeek and finally Uccle where he learnt how to speak the both speaking languages in Belgium.

Music has been running in his family as both of his parents sing. Before The Voice, Makiese sang at the church and took singing lessons at his local school.

Earlier this year, in an interview Jérémie had already hinted at a possible participation in Eurovision:

– It would be an honour to represent my country at next year's Eurovision, he stated.

Besides his love for singing, Jérémie has another passion: football. The singer plays for Royal Excelsior Virton.
