Rachel Traets (born 16 August 1998) is a singer from the Netherlands. Traets lives in Wouw, a small village in the south-west of the Netherlands.
In October 2011 she won Junior Songfestival 2011 with the song “Ik ben een Teenager” (English: “I’m a Teenager”). She was selected to represent her country in the 2011 Junior Eurovision Song Contest held on 3 December 2011 in Yerevan, Armenia. A few weeks later the title “Ik ben een Teenager” was shrunk to “Teenager”, which would be the official title for the Dutch entry. She came in second in the actual contest with only a few points difference with the winner of the 2011 contest: Candy from Georgia.
Rachel is preceded by Anna and Senna who represented the Netherlands in the 2010 Junior Eurovision Song Contest and succeeded by Femke who represented the Netherlands in 2012.
