Louis Neefs

Louis Neefs (1937-1980) was a Flemish singer and presenter who had his first hit in 1960.

In 1967 he represented Belgium at the eurovision song Contest with Oh Oh Ik Heb Zorgen which came 7th and in 1969 he came 7th again with the song Jennifer Jennings.

In 1969 Louis was a favourite for 1st place but during his performance he made a spontaneous movement with his arms which made the Belgian delegation furious and they thought Louis came only 7th because of Louis' spontaneity .

In 1972 Louis had his biggest hit with the song Margrietje. Louis Neefs also covered many eurovision songs.

In 1980 Louis and his wife died in a car accident.
