Mental Health – Dani van Velthoven’s Song Lifts You Up – Magical Powers
Dani van Velthoven, AKA – Dany, won The Voice of Holland, Season 11 and was announced the winner on March 26, 2021. For his final performance he sang his original song, “Magical Powers”
Some days when I listen to “Magical Powers” I put my cell phone in my pocket, go outside, turn the sound to full volume, I then lift my arms out to my sides, palms up, look up at the sky and start dancing with me, myself, Dany’s music and the sky above. I laugh and let the stress and anxiety that I’m holding within, leave my body with each exhale and I let go. I just let all the heaviness go bye bye!
By the way, the image of the sky in this blog is from the clouds that rolled in yesterday, October 5, 2021, and I just felt there may be something special for me to take a picture of outside so I hurried out and sure enough, the majestic clouds were waiting for me to snap a picture of them. No graphic work done to the original image. I just added the text and the slightly shaded filtered border.
I didn’t see or hear any of Dany’s music until the first week of June when I saw the information come across one of my news feeds. That evening when I started watching all of The Voice of Holland performances by Dany, I could feel a shift happening within my heart. The first song Dany sang for the Blind Audition is below, “Hallelujah”
I have struggled with severe PTSD nearly my entire life and the impact of the covid virus, just basic chaos in the world and the challenges of living life, has had me tittering on the edge of a ledge that if I took the wrong step in my life, there would be no return. I’ve been on this edge for too many years.
But something started to shift in my mind, heart and spirit as I’d listend to each of the songs Dany sang in The Voice of Holland performances. I didn’t want the warmth, vibration and sound of the music and words of Dany, to stop filling my heart with a captivating feeling of awakening to being more alive and safe. So, my family had to get used to me playing his music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it’s now the end of September and I still continue to stream his music all the time as I feel that I’m getting healthier mentally, physically and spiritually. “Hallelujah“, “Magical Powers” and “Fragile” are 3 of my most beloved songs that Dany sings and shares with all of us.
Mental Health Illness is so very foreign to those who have never lived within it’s darkness. But, I will say, my husband and son are my most sacred support system. I can express how I’m feeling and ask for help at the times when I’m just too deep in a dark hole and the only way out is to take the final leap but I keep telling myself to HOLD ON TIGHT and just Breathe Into Feeling the Air of the Next Moment.
Well, with all my Holding on Tight, Dany’s music found it’s way to my home, my heart, mind and spirit. Dani van Velthoven’s beloved partner took his own life and Dany knows first hand of how fragile people can be at times.
So, with the release of his original song, “Magical Powers“, Dany is touching lives around the world in ways that can empower and lift others up. Dany is an activist in the LGBTQ Community and lives in the Amsterdam, Netherlands area. Dany’s music is being streamed all around the world.

With the passing away of Dany’s partner the end of May, 2021, Dany took a month to grieve and leave the stage of social media and doing interviews. Then with incredible unbelievable strength, Dani van Velthoven, returned to the news and spoke of his newly released single, “FRAGILE” and the passing away of his partner. Dany has now become very vocal about the mental health struggles people have and encourage awareness to continue and that there be more education to help others “hear” what someone is really expressing when they say something to the effect, ‘they are having a bad day’.

With only a few months having passed between Dany winning The Voice of Holland on March 26, 2021 to the release of “Fragile” on July 30, 2021, lives are being transformed and deeply touched by his two heart touching, powerful songs. I play his music daily as I have found that it some how keeps my anxiety level much lower. My inner personal acceptance of Myself is allowing me to feel much more empowered and safe within my own mind, heart and spirit and the skin of my body.
** Disclosure: I am a fan of Dany’s music and I profit in no way other than to be part of the larger movement of awakening people to the acceptance of the LGBTQ community and those with mental health illness.
I’ve written a blog about Dany singing: HALLELUJAH in English and Arabic, for his blind audition on The Voice of Holland. Dany sings with the tone and vibration of what I’d feel Angels sound like.
And to keep the awareness of the struggles within the LGBTQ community when it comes to them being accepted, loved, embraces and respected with the same rights due to everyone, I’m sharing as a fan of a gay couple, Chris and Will, their new MOVIE TRAILER: The Real Prince Charmings. I got the chills and cried when I watched the movie trailer the first time. The movie will be released by the end of this year, 2021 and will be available to be seen around the world sometime in 2022.
The movie is being considered as a potential Academy Award OSCAR Winning Movie. Watch the tailer below and then click to go to Chris and Will’s Website for Tickets to the Theater Movie Premiers and other information about the 20 years that went into the making of this movie.
