Sarah Bettens (born 23 September 1972, Kapellen, Belgium) is the lead singer of the Belgian band K's Choice. Sarah and her brother Gert Bettens are the two popular faces of the band. She is known for her enigmatic, smoky voice. The band is popular in Belgium, the Netherlands and France, and had toured in the U.S. with The Verve Pipe, Tonic, Alanis Morissette and the Indigo Girls, as well as on their own. Sarah has maintained a successful solo career as well by providing vocals for music soundtracks, including Underworld, Wild Things, Zus and Zo and more recently Leef!.
2002 - present
Sarah has had a large lesbian fanbase since the beginning of her career with K's Choice, but it wasn't until May 2002 that she officially came out to the public. She discusses this on , as well as on .
In 2003 K's Choice decided to split up, with siblings Gert and Sarah exploring solo projects. Sarah made a mini-album of her own, called Go. Her first full-length solo album, Scream, was released in Europe on 14 March 2005, and in the USA on 23 August 2005. K's Choice reformed in 2010.
In March 2007 she released an EP through online music label Fuzz. Her second full-length album, Shine, including new mixes of the tracks from the Fuzz EP, was released in 2007. It was produced by Brad Wood. The full CD was distributed for free with the 13 October edition of the Flemish newspaper De Morgen in Belgium, which sold 180,000 copies. Normally this newspaper sells 95,000 copies.
In late 2008 Sarah released the album Never Say Goodbye, consisting of recordings of live performances of old K's Choice and Sarah Bettens songs, covers, and new songs which had been played during previous tours. The album is only available at concerts and from her online shop.
There were plans to license the single Come Over Here from her LP Scream for episode 409 of the American series The L Word. However, the plans fell through due to problems involving the songs' co-writer and record label. The song also appears on the premier Music With a Twist compilation (Sony).
After having played Michigan Womyn's Music Festival in 2006 solo, she organized an all female band for a performance in 2007.
Sarah currently lives in Tennessee, USA with her partner and 2 step-children.
