Her dream was to make it big in Jamaica as a reggae artist. It finally came true, but not in the way she had hoped.
In the beginning of 2008 she hit the number one spot on Billboard's Hot Dance Chart with the song Calabria, which went on to become a massive hit all over the world. Very much also in Jamaica. At the same time she was the most award winning singer that year in her homeland Denmark with a best-selling album in her native language.
Ironically she didn't live to see all this. After fighting for her break-through for 17 years, her success had only just begun to bloom, when a driver crashed her car on the way from performing at a stage show in Jamaica. In the car with her was her longtime best friend Karen Mukupa who survived the accident.
