Wrap-up: French cavalry at Eurovision

02 June 2009 at 12:03 CEST

Who is Patricia Kaas?

Patricia Kaas began singing at just eight years old and has never stopped singing since. Her charm and charisma have made her one of the top ten French personalities for over 20 years now.  

An Irish fan commented on her and her song: "What is the essence of a good song? One could talk for hours on this subject or one could just spend three minutes and listen to the Elegant Patricia Kass and her haunting song. From the first ten seconds that I heard this song I was swept away to a quiet French cafe where an eluring woman sang her song of love. This is my experience every time I hear Et S'il Fallait Le Faire. If there ever was a song that deserved to win for passion and beauty then it is this song and singer."

Kaas amazed the whole of Europe and gathered a total of 107 points, finishing eighth. Check out who exactly is Patricia Kaas by clicking on her Artist Profile.
