Shalisa van der Laan (18) lives in a tiny old village in the northern part of the Netherlands. She is known for taking part in The Voice Kids, as well as for winning the Junior Songfestival in the Netherlands in 2015.
Shalisa participated in the contest with the song “A Million Lights”, which she wrote and composed herself at the age of 15. The jury was blown away by Shalisa's song and performance, and gave her the maximum of 12 points. In the years since, SHALISA has focused on writing her own music and on her role as singer-songwriter Nina in the musical Disney Channel series 'Just Like Me!', all while finishing high school. During that time she also recorded the Dutch title track of hit series 'Soy Luna' together with Ridder van Kooten, and she provided the local voice of Princess Elena in the animation series 'Elena of Avalor'. The release of her debut single 'Not Alone' is the start of a completely new adventure full of exciting challenges.
