Milk Inc. singer dies of drug overdosePosted on 24/04/10
Ann Vervoort, the former front woman of the Belgian dance formation Milk Inc. died Thursday night, aged 33. Her body was found in her home in Houthalen-Helchteren (Belgium). According to the newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws 'a lot of drugs and booze' were involved. Graphic designer, Ann Vervoort was a dancer for Pat Krimson (aka Patrick Claesen producer of 2Fabiola, Nunca and Leopold 3) before she joined Milk Inc. She was brought in by Regi Penxten in 1997 as a replacement for Sofie Winters as a singer for appearances. In reality Karine Boelaerts, a Belgian studio singer, who was already working for other projects such as 2 Fabiola was hired to record all the songs.
In the middle of September 2000, Vervoort left Milk Inc. and moved to Ibiza with her boyfriend Patrick Claesen where they founded the record company Beni Musa Records. Vervoort was replaced by Linda Mertens. When her relation with Claesen ended 5 years later she returned to Belgium where she led a rather anonymous existence. It seems that she became quite dependent on painkillers after a working accident.
On a side-note, the official Milk Inc. website did not post anything about this, which has already made fans lash out to the band for lacking the needed respect. Current members of Milk Inc. are singer Linda Mertens, musician Regi Penxten and co-producer Filip Vandueren.
Below is a video of "Oceans" from 1999 with Ann Vervoort followed by one of "Losing Love". Rest in peace.
