José and Benny had a special bond. In 1984, Benny released his most successful album "Het Zwart Goud" (produced by José's husband Will). The LP included the Dutch #1 hit "Waarom Fluister Ik Je Naam Nog" and a beautiful ballad "Een Dag In Parijs" (featuring the background vocals of José).

José and Benny were not only colleagues but they were real friends. The Luv' singer is still in touch with Benny's last partner Hans van Barneveld.
