From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Corry Brokken (b. December 3, 1932) is a former singer born in Breda in the Netherlands.

Winner of the 1957 Eurovision Song Contest, representing the Netherlands singing "Net als toen" (Like it used to be). The melody was composed by Guus Jansen and the lyrics were written by Willy van Hemert.

She participated in the 1956 contest (placing unknown) singing "Voorgoed voorbij" (Over for good), with music and lyrics by Jelle de Vries and in the 1958 contest (where she tied for last place) singing "Heel de wereld" (The whole world), with music and lyrics by Benny Vreden.

In 1976, Brokken served as the presenter of the contest, and in 1997 she announced the results of the Dutch vote for that year's contest. By that time she was no longer active as a singer: she ended her musical career in 1976 to study Law and in 1988 she became a judge.
