Amandine Bourgeois' voice has a story. One of a girl who fell in love with music at an early age, completely in phase with her family's dominant passion. The child dreamt of a duet with Whitney Houston, took music theory lesson, then flute lessons at the Nice Conservatory. She later on integrated a pop band, before choosing the tough road of cover bands, with which she performed in all the bars of the Toulouse area.
In 2008, Amandine wins "La Nouvelle Star" (French Pop Idol). The audience instantly fell under the spell of her warm and hoarse voice, both powerful and fragile at once.
In 2009, her debut album 20m² is certified Gold. For her second album Sans Amour Mon Amour in 2012 she records in the famous Abbey Road studios in London, with Amy Winehouse and Plan B's staff .
Amandine uses her inner emotions to sing, to write and feed her inspiration.
Amongst some of her most beautiful memories: a duet she performed with Scorpions, and opening for Johnny Hallyday's concerts in the historical Royal Albert Hall venue in London.
Amandine is proud and honoured to represent France at the ESC. She wanted to offer the audience a song she felt completely at ease with, a song close to who she was. L'Enfer Et Moi, written by Boris Bergman and composed by David Salkin, is in perfect harmony with her personality.
For her fans and for the Eurovision Song Contest, she swears to give it all !
