In 1967, she started a singing career in the Netherlands, performing songs in the French chanson tradition. In 1969, she represented the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest with her composition "De troubadour" (lyrics by David Hartsema; orchestra conducted by Franz de Kok). She was one of the four winners that year.

In the early seventies, Kuhr was more successful in France than in her home country. She topped the French charts in 1972 with the song "Jesus Christo" and performed in the shows of Georges Brassens.

In 1980, she had her biggest hit in the Netherlands: "Visite", a song she performed together with the French group Les Poppys. She has been releasing records ever since, though without major chart success.

In 1982, Kuhr hosted the Nationaal Songfestival, the Dutch national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Kuhr was one of the artists who recorded the song "Shalom from Holland" (written by Simon Hammelburg and Ron Klipstein) as a token of solidarity to the Israeli people, threatened by missiles from Iraq, during the Gulf War in 1991.

Kuhr's first marriage was in 1974 with to an Israeli Doctor. Kuhr had been attacked in May of 1973 in Haarlem, which has caused damage to her nose. Her new husband repaired her nose. Kuhr converted to Judaism. She had two daughters during this marriage, one in 1975 and the second in 1980. For a while, she lived in Israel.[1][2]. After he divorce, she was partners with Herman Pieter de Boer, a song writer, from 1981 to 1993. She was married for a second time in 2003.
