Birgit Schuurman (July 1, 1977, Utrecht, Netherlands) (artist name Birgit) is a Dutch rock singer and actress. Birgit started singing in her final years of school. In the beginning these were pretty much unknown R&B and dance projects. In 1995 she started singing in the band Jeunes Turcs with her older sister Katja Schuurman. But her real breakthrough wasn't until 2001 with the song 'I know' from her Album Few Like Me.
