Highlight was a pop band from the 70ths, a Dutch pop band. There leadsinger Gaby Denneman went to school with me. At the Vincentius MAVO in Heerlen, Gaby i can remember was always singing. Than in the 70ties she joined this band Highlight. They had several numbers in the hit parades. With their song California, they hat a big succes, it scored number 10 in the hit lists in Holland. We kept seeing each other when she and her mother and sister came shopping in the shop i used to work for in Heerlen. And she always stayed normal, and nice like she always was. Not like, look at me, i am famous. She even opened a boutique her selve in Heerlen, i just cannot remember the name of it. It was a small little boutique with very, great dresses. Sadly Gaby died in a car accident in 1983, if i am right informed, she came back from a concert when it happened, and normaly her father would drive her, but this night she was driving herself. I visit her grave so now and than, she lies in the same graveyard as my parents. And her grave has music notes on it. Its so Gaby, i was shocked when i heard of her death, i can imagined how much pain and grief it must have been for her family to loose her. She hat a great voice and if she would not have died so young i believe we would have heard a lot more of her.
