Singer Tino Martin sees his dead sister, Kim van der Valk as his example in life. “They had more zest for life and determination in her little finger than I have in my whole body.”
“So much adversity, so much pain and sorrow, but always cheerful and full of energy”, says Martin Saturday back in the AD. Van der Valk passed away in late april at age 41 from the effects of bone cancer.
“When I was about six years old, my sister got sick. She was thirteen at the time. It was the side board. We have then always taken into account with the worst. She carried a gene giving her body always cancer cells created. Death traveled as it were. It is a miracle that Kim finally 41 years.”
The singer handled the loss by “to go”, he explains. “If I thuisblijf, the curtains dichtdoe and with a bottle of whiskey on the bench, stay seated, I’m going to the fucking.”
Saturday night is Martin in the Ziggo Dome, where he and his sister during the performance also wants to honor. “Anyway, with two numbers. Forever Young, that Beyoncé with Jay-Z delved deep into has, and Love is a Message of MFSB. That was already planned. And I think it would be nice to have a large portrait of her to show, but more on that decide at the last moment I. I don’t want to collapse.”
