March 5th, 2008, a day André will never forget.

In the morning he was awarded with the "Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres" by the French ambassador in the Netherlands, in his castle in Maastricht.

In the evening he received (for the fourth year) the "Export Award" from the Dutch music industry for the best selling artist abroad.

The video below is a compilation of three programs broadcast on March 5th, 2009 by the Dutch channels TROS and SBS6. The second video comes from the local Limburg TV station L1.
