Angèle receives a "Bronze Zinneke" for her role as ambassador of Brussels

“The Bronze Zinneke” is a miniature version of the famous statue representing a mongrel dog by artist Tom Franssen and which is located rue des Chartreux, in the center of Brussels. Each year, a personality who plays the role of ambassador of the capital, is awarded the distinction which has already been awarded to Johan Verminnen, Vincent Kompany, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Toots Thielemans.

Angèle, who was born in 1995 in Uccle under the name of Angèle Van Laeken, is a young singer-songwriter who quickly established herself in Belgium and abroad, with her typical Brussels humor whose album “Brol”, broadcast in the metro of the capital, is a perfect example. His hit “Bruxelles je t’aime” is also a declaration of love for the Belgian capital.

“I was already a fan of Angèle’s father (Marka, editor’s note), when he was bassist of the legendary Brussels band Go Go”, says Sven Gatz. “I also became a fan of his brother (Roméo Elvis, editor’s note) when he took his first steps with strong texts on Brussels rhythms. And now I’m a fan of Angèle. You love Brussels, Brussels loves you and we love Brussels”, explained the minister.
