Marga Scheide Early Life
Marga Scheide grew up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where she was born and reared, and she has always loved music. In the 1970s, she started her singing career by playing in neighborhood bands and bars.
Later, she was cast in the musical “Hair,” which made its way around Europe.
Marga Scheide Pre Luv’ career
In the early 1970s, Scheide began her modeling career in her own country. She frequently appeared on the covers of successful compilations including diverse Dutch artists. Miss Holland 1971, 1972, 1973, 1977, Miss Young Holland 1973, Miss Young International 1973, and Miss Elegance Miss Europa 1975 were among the beauty pageants in which she competed.
Additionally, Scheide took part in a number of advertising campaigns for Yamaha motorcycles, “bintje” (a type of potato), lemonade SiSi, and “bintje.” She was chosen by two record producers, Hans van Hemert and Piet Souer, to join the girl group Luv’ in 1976.
Marga Scheide The Luv’ years
In a significant portion of Continental Europe (Benelux, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Norway, France, Spain), Israel, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Argentina, and Mexico, Luv’ (Marga Scheide, Patty Brard (replaced in August 1980 by Ria Thielsch), and José Hoebee) scored a string of hit records between 1977 and 1981. The group split up in March 1981.
Eight years later, Scheide collaborated with vocalists Diana van Berlo and Michelle Gold to create a fresh version of Luv’. Fans called the new lineup “Marga’s Luv,” but it only had one little hit (“Welcome to my Party”) on the Dutch Top 40 in the fall of 1989, and it never achieved the same level of popularity as the original trio. Carina Lemoine took Michelle Gold’s position in the summer of 1990. The formation disbanded once more in 1992.
