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.

Lyrics of Tout l'Univers

Laisser le vent qui frôle Sa main sur mon épaule Le vide dans ma tête Pas la moindre cachette C’est l’aube qui décline Derrière un champ de ruine Le moment de grandir Ne pas te retenir Je vois derrière nous des morceaux de toi Et ce que la douleur a fait de moi Tout l'univers Nos deux coeurs sous la terre Au milieu des failles où tout éclate Se trouver au point d’impact Sans toi Que deviendront nos souffles S’ils restent sur le bord ? Cet amour qui nous tord Je vois derrière nous des morceaux de toi Et ce que la douleur a fait de moi Tout l'univers Nos deux coeurs sous la terre Au milieu des failles où tout éclate Se trouver au point d’impact Sans toi Derrière mes paupières Trouver de l’air Ah (Tout l’univers) (Nos deux coeurs sous la terre) Au milieu des failles et des ressacs Nous nous retrouverons au point d’impact Comment soigner nos coeurs qui éclatent Tout l’univers
Let the wind brush His/her hand over my shoulder The void in my head Not a single place to hide The dawn is fading Behind a field of ruins It’s time to grow up Don’t hold yourself back I see pieces of you behind us And I see what pain has made of me The whole universe Our two hearts under the ground At the centre of the rifts where everything explodes Being at the point of impact Without you What will happen to our breaths If they stay on the shore? This love that wrings us out I see pieces of you behind us And I see what pain has made of me The whole universe Our two hearts under the ground At the centre of the rifts where everything explodes Being at the point of impact Without you Behind my eyelids Get some air Ah (The whole universe) (Our two hearts under the ground) At the centre of the rifts and the aftershocks We will meet at the point of impact How can we heal our exploding hearts The whole universe
