Biography[Edit]Edit

Het Goede Doel is a band from Netherlands who in 1979 was established by T and Venkataraman. Later that year, Westbroek there by his childhood friend T obtained as a singer. After several band changes appeared in 1982, the first single In life. The number did not come further than a tipnotering, but it gave the band some national fame.

In september of that year the single hostage the charts, which, like a place In life got on the Belgium debut album . Het Goede Doel had submitted by this first record hits with Belgium, the eponymous single love me and Friendship. The album reached the first place in the album Top 100 and the Platinum status. It was in 1982 the best-selling debut album ever. Also brought T the end of 1982 under the name Westbroek and Henk and Henk the single Sinterklaas, who knows him not? out.

In 1983 brought Het Goede Doel from the album Tempo Doeloe , that considering more was sold and less well than its predecessor, but reached the gold status. Simplicity was no. 5 in the National Charts and no. 11 in the Top 40). The band won in this same year (like Stopping and Cherry) a Silver Harp.

At the end of december 1984, the Dutch-speaking x-mas song, from Eternal Christmas . This song was like all other songs written by T and Westbroek. It is sung by Anny Schilder (entered into force in the same year from BZN ) and children for children. They were musically accompanied by Het Goede Doel and the choir the voice of the People.Starting from 1985, charity by as a trio. The charity still consisted of T, Westbroek and Venkataraman. For making albums or performances were hired musicians from then on. It was, as much as possible, use the same musicians as before.

After two and a half years of silence around the Group appeared in 1986 the album nice and wear-proof that was well received by the press. On this album are the numbers: I dance so I existStop and tried everything . Also "emergency exit" is on this album (with a guest appearance by Huub van der Lubbe). In a subsequent live performance is also this number one hit.

In 1987 the band pulled with a tour of the country by resulting in the album Het Goede Doel Live, with the mentioned "emergency exit (live)".

For Colombine Foundation, founded by Herman van Veen, made Het Goede Doel in 1988 the album everyone is different. The two Henken wrote the eleven songs and T and Venkataraman produced this album. On this charity album the vocals are provided by ten Dutch guest vocalists (including Marco BakkerRob de NijsRamses Shaffy,Peter te Bos, Herman van Veen and René Froger) and the Belgian singer Johan Verminnen. At the request of dj Erik de Zwart became everything can make a man happywith René Froger on single released. This song was number one in all listings. This number broke Froger finally by as a singer. The misunderstanding that this was a single of Froger, accompanied by Het Goede Doel. However, it was a single from the Charity with René Froger as guest singer.

In the autumn of 1989 started Het Goede Doel to a theatre tour of all the major theatres in the Netherlands under the title "Charity-Theater Tourisme", where their music was combined with theatrical elements. There was a story line. There was talk about massaging by both danced, and acted, blunt Henken. The charity was rewarded with the Golden Notekraker of the Dutch toonkunstenaarsbond.

At the same time as this theater tour came the album "Souvenir" from. Today , of their own free willand with open eyes were just the top 50 of the national Charts in the late 1980s. For the rest is "Souvenir" a less commercial plate and, according to the press, a ' pretentious ' album. In June of 1991 reached the single If I the building ofArnold Schwarzenegger had the 41st place. It turned out to be the Swan Song of the charity. Serious differences of opinion ended one of the duo's most successful Dutch composers. At a concert in Curacao in 2010 told Westbroek that the conflict, inter alia, dealt with the question of who would do the lead vocals on Born for the happiness, one of his favorite songs. Het Goede Doel was after the most important Dutch group Doe Maar of the eighties.

After Het Goede Doel[Edit]Edit

When het Goede Doel no longer existed, went further as a solo musician, Westbroek radio dj for the VARA, politician for Leefbaar Utrecht and project leader for children for children. Solo hits were: Where she runs to hikingPilot me through the stormeven your name is beautifulthe sky and spitting image. Westbroek spent five albums: spring (1991), Vrij (1994), Wahab (1998), heaven (2000) and spitting image (2002).

T started in 1987 together with Van Herk Stu-stu-Studio (the albums everyone is different and Souvenir were included here), first in Utrecht and from 1992 in Loenen aan de Vecht. He produced and (wrote for) among others Herman van VeenCity to CityShannonLinda de MolPaul de LeeuwTony CousinKatja Schuurmanthe closetchildren for childrenAadi and Frank Boeijen. Solo brought T three albums: the help sinterklaas (1991), but for the rest everything is going well (1994) and Grass (1996). He had been with "I ask Santa Claus a very happy Christmas" a hit by the end of 1992 and in 1996, Henk was told with the title song for the SBS6 series Over the Red. Afterwards it remained (outside the success of the artists produced by him) still on the hitfront.

T and Westbroek back together[Edit]Edit

At the end of 2001, gave Het Goede Doel two reunion concerts in the HMH in Amsterdam (motto: "10 years happy apart") and followed by a box set came with four CDs out called Give the people what they want. There also appeared a dvd called as if nothing had happened, on which the registration of the reunion concert can be seen, including extras such as interviews with the band members.

At the end of 2007 to record an album in the studio went Westbroek of T. The album was originally released under Henk Westbroeks be name. However, during the recording sessions turned out so well that the cooperation it was decided to release the album under the name ' Het Goede Doel ' with the album title crazy. The album, which was initially only available through a legal, free download on the site of an outsourcing company for ICT specialists (IT-staffing) was successful: more than one million legal downloads. However, there was no record in the hit parade, because free downloads not be counted. The single besides yours is legally downloaded over 35,000 times[1]. This resulted in a new reunion and tour with a benefit concert with fellow musicians in the Ahoy for the benefit of ViafricaFoundation. Tour de France In 2009 they wrote the Radio song "Out and About".

The second reunion album, entitled Grace, has appeared on 14 February 2011 (Valentine's day). Error is called the number that already from 24 January 2011 download is, as a foretaste of the album.
