May 17 / First Rehearsal France: the best artwork for any entry this year
Lisa from France was just on stage and how full of emotions was her performance, even being so simplified. She was alone on stage in a dark blue dress, accompanied by four drum players and lots more of them on the background. Could she give the Oh la la country its best result since Patricia Kaas?
Lisa has a very good relationship to her daughter: “Unfortunately she can’t come to Vienna. She’s supporting me from Paris,” – said Lisa. (source: eurovision.tv)
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.
