Sandra Reemer was born in Bandoeng and was launched at the start of the 60s as a child star, but she proved her longevity on the scene.  In 1968, she sang at the Knokke Song Contest and participated several times in the Eurovision Song Contest (1972: with Andres; 1976: as Sandra Reemer; 1979: as Xandra).

Besides that, from 1968 to 1975, she was one half of the duo Sandra & Andres with Dries Holten.  The group Xandra featured Ton op 't Hof (dr), Mac Sell (g), Paul Vink (o, p) and Ferdy Lancee (g) and didn't last very long.
