Ray Slijngaard (1970) bombed during the boundless nineties in the world top of pop music. As eurodance group 2 Unlimited Ray and Anita Doth captured England, Scotland, Japan, Germany, the Benelux; in the end they were number 1 with No Limit in no fewer than 35 countries.
Millions, sex, champagne, glitter and glamor and a dizzying number of flying hours literally let Ray live like God in France. Michael Jackson shook his hand and lisped: I like your music. Nothing seemed to be able to harm him. Abruptly the success stopped. In an endless silence full of decay and lingering lawsuits, fortune evaporated and Ray exploded on every conceivable and inconceivable wall. Now 2 Unlimited is back and Ray is back.
The hedonistic living artist has become a father and finally tells his whole story. An incredible story that must be told for the children of today, for his children. So they know who he is, so they know what life can do to you. Ray is a book full of unimaginable adventures; raw and pure. “Eye to eye with the image of Jesus I begged: give me back my life, man, give me back my life.”
