Although Jeroen Van Der Boom (born Nijmegen on June 22, 1972) gained pop stardom in his native Netherlands with the 2007 hit single "Jij Bent Zo," it was television where the future icon would make his first impact, as a presenter of the TV show Real TV, in 1996. In 2004, he released the first of a handful of singles, "Toekomst," and would eventually record a full-length album, Jij Bent Zo, in 2008. The album, made up of originals and covers of work by such artists as Eric Clapton and Queen, was a hit, and his work won him many plaudits and awards. ~ Chris True, Rovi
