Rechtop in de wind - Marcha

Marga Bult was born as Marga Groeneveld on July 2, 1956 in Lattrop, the Netherlands. In 1981, producer Peter Koelewijn selected her out of 250 singers to replace Gemma van Eck, who had left the popular Dutch girl group Babe. They worked together for five years until Babe fell apart.

In 1987, Marga was selected to represent the Netherlands with the song 'Rechtop in de wind' (literal translation: 'Upright in the wind'), a song - not coincidentally - written by Peter Koelewijn. She changed her name to Marcha for this occasion, making it easier for international juries to pronounce her name. She ended at fifth place during the Contest, a surprisingly good result. Even more surprising: it wasn't a hit in the Netherlands.
