Session 2 (19:30 – 19:40) – Jared Hiwat

It is kind of crazy that Jared Hiwat is not a household name yet.  Jared got his first big break in 2011 when he performed in the theatre show “Tribute to the R&B 90’s”. His rise to stardom really took off when he reached the Live Shows of the Dutch TV show “The Voice of Holland”. After embarking on a world tour as a backing vocalist for Nelson Freitas and opening for Ryan Leslie, he was the winner of the Dutch TV show “Beat it”. In 2015,  Jared decided to swift his focus to dance music and not without success: he was the vocalist on the Bougenvilla summer smash hit “Homeless”, released on the renowned Spinnin’ Deep label. Since then he performance internationally and rocking two successful nationwide theatre tours with the “John Williams presents; Oldskool RnB hits” tour. In 2020 he plans to release his long-awaited debut EP.


Showcase 1 (21:30 – 21:40) Kyara Harley

Kyara is not new to our stage! She was part of Queen Confessions earlier this year and we love her sound!  Transgender pop artist KYARA makes a bold & powerful statement empowering all feminine figures. She is all about a new take on girl power, including all kinds of women, whatever form they come in. In her music video “WALK” KYARA calls her Femme Gang together to help her celebrate the NEW WOMAN, including a cast of trans women, plus size women, women with diverse skin tones, as well as, feminine boys.
The Dutch singer, songwriter and dancer stands up for a beautiful diverse group of women who are too often seen as misfits or outcasts by society. These figures have historically been left out of the media or misrepresented. KYARA is part of the new era. It is the time for the new narrative of womanhood. Her intention is to give confidence to the people who need it the most and to create visibility for women who are usually not seen.
