Music producer Eric van Tijn is unhappy about the artists who sang the King’s Song. He thinks they have totally let down Composer John Ewbank after all the criticisms. "It could and should have been done differently," says Van Tijn.
All 51 artists could also have formed a block, after the criticisms, and could have said, for instance, “We think it is a beautiful song and we worked on it with much passion and joy. So we are just going to sing it." "Instead they remained dead silent,” says van Tijn today in the Telegraaf.
