Karlien Van Jaarsveld
Karlien van Jaarsveld is an Afrikaans singer in South Africa. She is the oldest of three children. Her brother, Bobby van Jaarsveld , is also a singer.
Karlien started working with Bobby van Jaarsveld in 2005 as his guitarist and background singer. She also sang a duet with Bobby on his first album. Karlien decided to save her own course around 2006 and then established a rock group, Revolution . She was the founder and lead singer of this group. Rock music was always in her blood and she considered the two years with Revolution as an excellent school of learning. However, in October 2008, Karlien decided to follow a solo career and left the Revolution.
Karlien was married to former Springbok and Blue Bull Derick Hougaard. At the end of 2013 she gave birth to twin boys. The song “Daniel and Eliah” on her album, My Hartjie, was assigned to them.
