After starring in the national TV show Kinderen voor Kinderen (Kids for Kids) between age 8-14, she joined “Non Stop”, a teenage choir, and participated in musicals Chicago and Les Misérables.
In 2004, EliZe released her first single, “Shake” in the Netherlands. Though the song received the title “Dancesmash!” by Radio 538, the single was a modest hit by peaking at number 32 on the Dutch Top 40. “Automatic (I’m Talking to You)”, the second single, was released in 2005 in the Netherlands and also earned the title “Dancesmash!” shortly after its release. It is also the first song that has ever charted outside the Netherlands, charting in Finland and Belgium amongst others in the top 20. Her third single, “I’m No Latino”, was released in August 2005, and became a TMF Superclip shortly after its introduction.
