Lisa Angell will represent ‘La Bell France’ at Eurovision 2015. But who is she?

French TV announced this morning that Lisa Angell will perform the song N’oubliez pas in Vienna. The song translates as ‘Don’t Forget’ and has at its theme to remember the victims of World War 1. However with the tragic recent events in Paris the song will also have a modern-day relevance too. Listen to a clip of the song here.

Lisa is half Italian and first came to prominence at the age of 11 when she won the radio hooks at the Nice Carnival for 4 consecutive years.  At the age of 15, she studied classical singing at the Nice Conservatory

In 2001 she moved to Paris where she met Didier Barbelivien . He wrote for her the song ‘Years after’ .

In 2011 she released her debut album ‘The Divine’ where it made the Top 40 in France.

Her second album ‘Words’  came out in 2013 .

On this album she covered the last French winning Eurovision entry L’oiseau et l’enfant 

Do you think Lisa is a good choice for Eurovision 2015? What do you think of the clip of her song that we have heard? Will this be a win for France at Eurovision?

  1. Win? No – it’s a classic French language ballad but it doesn’t quite hit the heights – although the subject matter probably limits this.

    I’ll be interested to see her sing it live – I think it is a safe choice for France, they don’t want only two points this year! It will do well with the juries so I think that it will possibly be mid table on that basis alone, not sure how many televotes she will get…
