Julia, now using her stage name, Julia Zahra, was honored in her hometown of Bussum in the Netherlands. She received the Bussum's Promise, an award for exemplary young people, from the mayor earlier this year. Her cover of "Oops!...I Did It Again" was a number one hit on the Dutch Top 40 for a week after her performance on "The Voice of Holland."
