Gjon Muharremaj, from Broc in the Canton of Fribourg, has dedicated his heart and soul to music since he was little.
The singer's story began when a childhood rendition of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love With You moved his grandfather to tears. This provided the inspiration for his stage name, Gjon’s Tears:
“I want to use my music to move people in all sorts of ways, whether it’s joy, sadness or melancholy.”
So impressed was his grandad that he decided to sign Gjon up to a TV talent show in his ancestral home of Albania. This proved to be a smart decision as, at the age of 12, Gjon finished third in Albania’s Got Talent. The next year he went on to reach the semi-finals of Switzerland’s Got Talent, and in 2019 he reached the same stage of The Voice (France).
Off stage, Gjon enjoys reading poetry and is a frequent visitor to theatres and museums. He also has a weakness for antiques, thanks to many flea-market visits with his father, but music has always been his number one passion.
