Lisa Angell (France): 'My tribute to women who suffer'
Gifted with a powerful voice, Lisa Angell is extremely "proud and happy" to represent her country in Vienna. On stage, the French participant will perform N'oubliez Pas - a song of "hope and peace, of courage and solidarity".
Lisa Angell grew up with a dream of becoming a singer. One day, the young singer took a decision to live from music, performing in piano bars across the French Riviera. Afterwards she recorded her single Des Années Après written by Didier Barbelivien (2001). In 2009 invited by the magician Dani Lary on his show, Lisa met Patrick Sébastien, a very popular showman who produced and wrote songs for her first album Les Divines (2011).
Lisa's second album Des Mots… (2013) was introduced by the single Je Saurai T’aimer, a cover of the song by Melanie Cohl which itself is the French adaptation of The Power Of Love by Celine Dion. In the same year, Lisa joined the recurring singers of the show Les Chansons D’abord, hosted by Natasha St-Pier on France 3.
Before paying tribute to the songstresses from the 30s, 40s and 50s with her third album Frou-Frou (2014), Lisa and Tony Carreira duetted the song L’oiseau Et L’enfant for his album.
