Shemsi Mushkolaj tries luck in the Netherlands
In 2002, an young woman from Kosovo took part in the German National Final as a part of the duo "Unity 2" in 2002. Shemsi Mushkolaj was a little star in Germany in the 2000s and even landed a hit in the US with the single "Say you will be mine". She is the first Kosovo-Albanian to appear in both VIVA and MTV music channels. It was after the fail to represent Germany, where she grew up in Dortmund, that she stopped her musical career and chose "normal" life.
Some years ago she moved to the Netherlands where she works as a German teacher until today.

Now, at an age of 28 years, she showed up in a talent show in Netherlands and experiences a great comeback in the dutch show "Voice of Holland", the dutch equivalent to X-Factor where she seems to be one great favourite.
Maybe we will see her on the ESC-scene again for the Netherlands one day. Her career at least is on a good way at the moment.
