France Gall is one of French music industry’s most famous and shiniest stars. Her music genre is pop rock. She is behind the record hits Ella Elle l’a, Laisse tomber les filles, La Declaration, and Evidemmet. France’s rise to stardom started when she won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1965 with her hit song, Poupee de Cire, Poupee de Son. Since then, almost all the albums she released reached the top of the charts. She is a solid performer from way back in the early 1960s up to now that is why she is a household name in France.
France was born on October 9, 1947, in Paris, France. She is Isabelle Gall in real life. Her father was also a musician and he influenced her to start a career in the music industry. France recorded her first song, Ne Sois pas Si Bete when she was just 15 years old. Good music coupled with her pretty face and charming personality quickly made her very first EP a hit among the fans selling almost 20, 000 copies immediately. And there was no turning back since then. But it had not been easy to gain the respect of the French music industry even with her instant success. Some dismissed her as just another pretty face with a limited vocal range and said that her songs had little substance in them. Although France admitted to having a narrow voice range, she did her best to maximize her singing capability and found songs that suited her style and personality. This added to her charm as a performer and endeared her to thousands of fans. She was also able to transition and redefine herself successfully from being a teenage performer to a mature artist.
France Gall was married to another musician, Michel Berger, but he died in 1992. She now lives in Los Angeles with her children, Raphael Hamburger and Pauline Berger.
