Marie-Jose van der Kolk (born September 16, 1974 in IJmuiden, Netherlands) also known by her stage names Loona and Carisma, is a singer, songwriter and dancer. She is most noted for her collaboration with DJ Sammy, who is her husband, and performing as a duo under the stage name of DJ Sammy feat. Carisma. When Marie moved to Majorca where she met DJ Sammy, they started recording songs under the name DJ Sammy featuring Carisma as "Life is just a game" which was their first hit (in 1996). This single was followed by "You are my angel", "Prince of love" and "Golden child". All these songs were put together in the album called DJ Sammy featuring Carisma "Life is just a game". In the summer of 1998 Marie came with a new project called "Loona", produced also by DJ Sammy. The first single was a cover of Paradisio's song "Bailando" and it became the summer song of 1998 in Germany reaching the top in German charts. In the autumn it was followed by another single "Hijo de la luna" (cover of the Spanish band Mecano) which also reached number 1 in German charts. Next release was her first album called "Lunita", where all the songs were in Spanish.
