About / Tribute to Isa

Isa aka Isabelle Leheuwe

(...) - August 4th, 2022

It's with great sadness that we announce that Isa has passed away on Thursday August 4th, due to heart failure , aged just 46 😓

Recent editors might not know her, but Isa was one of the pioneers of SHS, one of the first strong believers in this project. She joined us in 2006 and quickly contributed to an impressive amount of Dutch- and French-speaking covers, helping in the early days to establish SHS as thé reference in terms of cover songs.

Passionate about music and SHS, Isa also set up a evening conference for SHS at "La Médiathèque de Bruxelles" in 2011. And for her 40th birthday party she managed to win a private concert by her musical heroes, Patrick Riguelle and Jan Hautekiet , an evening we will remember!

Although Isa hasn't been in very active in the lastest years, her work still accounts for 2% of the total database! Her very last edit was the artist page of Brussels' legend Grand Jojo , which you don't know but you probably do :)

Isa was one of the few editors we met in person, at several occasions actually. She was a very kind and warm person, and she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go to her family, not in the least to her life partner Jan.

May her legacy live on...
