A while ago I noticed that Esmée changed her management contact information at her facebook and twitter account to an e-mail that’s part of the Manncom Creative official website. Billy Mann is chairman of Manncom and he is Esmée’s U.S. manager since the beginning. Elizabeth Baylog, who also worked with Esmée when she was at tennman, is also part of the team. Esmée is listed as one of the talent’s at Manncom’s official website, an excerpt of her official biography can be found below:
Esmée has since been collaborating with notable producers and artists such as Boyblue, K-Gee, Ben Cullum, Erik Arbores, and The New Velvet, as she crafts her 2nd album. Her YouTube views are over 137 million and counting!
“I have been singing since as long as I can remember, probably since I could open my mouth. Singing is like breathing to me, I don’t know what I would do without it. I have never felt so passionately about anything else. Music makes me feel like I belong.” -Esmée
Esmée is currently in New York City to write songs with various artist, including Billy Mann himself (an update about this is coming later on). She is no longer signed with Tennman Records/Interscope but she is still listed as one of the signed artist at Universal’s official website so I assume she is still signed there.
Let’s hope we will get more information about her second album soon, it seems to me that she is not going to release the “Screaming Out Loud” tracks she recorded in 2011 with producers Karl Gordon and Ben Cullum in London but that she is working on new material for her 2nd album.
Esmée was one of the many artist who performed the official “Koningslied” (King’s song) during the big concert in Ahoy, Rotterdam (Holland) on Queensday (April 30). All the artist and the audience performed the song for King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and their 3 daugthers. We added photos of her during the concert, as well as screen captures of the official performance in our gallery.
You can watch the performance below. Esmée performed parts of the song with Alain Clark and Nielson. Be sure to check out our previous update with the official music video, studio pictures and more in case you missed it.

Esmée was one of the many dutch artist who had the honor of being part of the official song – titled “Koningslied” (Kings’ song) – to celebrate the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander. She flew to Holland back in April to record the song and film the music video. The photos of Esmée in the studio, the screen captures of the official music video and the official artwork are added in our gallery.
The official music video for the song was released last month. Esmée is only featured in the video for a few seconds, because there were so many artist collaborating for this song. She sang her parts with up and coming dutch singer/songwriter Nielson (he is best known in Holland for his song ‘Beaty and the Brains‘). You can watch the video below, Esmée appears around the 02:40 mark.
Stay tuned for more “Koningslied” (Kings’ Song) related news.
I can not tell you how excited I am about posting this, but Esmée is back! She just uploaded a video of herself on her official youtube channel: esmeedenters explaining why she has been gone for two years. And better yet, she announced she is back! Be sure to subscribe to her alternative youtube channel esmeeworld. She will upload a brand new cover tomorrow.
The dutch television station NOS did a special on Dance4Life and they also showed a little bit of Esmée’s performance with Erik Arbores during the Dance4Life event in Ahoy Rotterdam yesterday. You can watch their performance and interview afterwards below, we are trying to convert it but in the mean time you can enjoy it this way.
Stay tuned for more coverage including photos!
