Life Jim Bakkum looks back on a special moment in his life By weekster Posted on November 4, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ The second day of November is forever engraved in the memory of Jim Bakkum (32). As a fifteen-year-old he stood before the Idols jury, but did not know that this would be the start of a long career in Dutch pop music. “When I see these images back, it is so crazy to imagine that the boy still knew nothing” “Every year I keep looking back on this special date for me”, Jim begins his tribute to this day. “Bleu and ignorant I went to Hoofddorp that day to do an audition for a new talent show. I wanted to know what it felt like to do an audition. I can still hear myself saying it. When I see these images again, it is so crazy to to imagine that little boy knew nothing yet. Do this for longer than I was old then. Sometimes it is good to consider where you come from. Where it all started. ” Jim has now experienced quite a few career highlights. In addition to finishing in second place at Idols, just behind Jamai Loman, he has played in several musicals, released albums, founded a family and played the lead role in the successful film Onze Jongens. The second part of the sexy film, Our Boys in Miami, will be released soon and you can see the first images below.
