At the age of 9 she got to know Sergio Quisquater (Belgium's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002). Sandy and Sergio started to sing together as Taste of Joy, but then a Canadian band with the same name turned out to exist. When they scored their first hit in Europe, Sandy and Sergio were asked to change their name: Taste Of Joy became Touch Of Joy. In no time, the Flemish duo became a true hit machine: "Don't Give It Up", "Feel All Right", "Enjoy", "Wild", "Fox On The Run",... These all became big hits in Flanders.
In January 2002, Sandy started a solo career, beside Touch Of Joy, and released the singles "Alone" and "One Reason". In the meanwhile, also Sergio tried it solo which resulted in representing Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest in Riga with "Sister". Therefor Touch of Joy was paused for a while but the duo came back in the summer of 2003 with another hit single, called "Be Ready".
Sandy became Xandee and jumped into the studios with songwriter/producer Marc Paelinck to record "1 Life". Xandee represented Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest with this song on May 15th 2004 in Istanbul. Unfortunately she only finished 22nd.
