Christophe Willem

This is the other of The Girl's favorite French singer. Without fail, the moment she hears the first few bars of any of his songs, she would jump up & down shouting "Christophe" - she is his biggest fan.

He was the winner of the fourth season of Nouvelle Star (the French version of The American Idol). He has an amazing voice & it took me a while before I could put his face to the voice. Listening to him sing, you would think you're listening to a female vocal.

Here he is performing one of my favorite of his songs, Jacques a dit. If you like it, don't forget to check out the beautiful video here.

Gosh, he sounds amazing. But he also looks like a woman, if a little hairy around the chin!!

This is gonna be unrelated to Christophe (The song is SO SLLLLLOOOWWW i couldnt finish listening to it :P) - but I like Carla Brun, in paritcular her Quelqu'Un M'A Dit (Wht does tht mean??). Do the french (people) have a certain attitude towards her? Ie, like or hate her?

He sings beautifully - but I got goosebumps because he does sound like a female singer...

Certainly needed the hair around the mouth.

you're right he is little effeminate

I don't think they feel very strongly either way about Carla Bruni. I personally finds it very amusing to see the First Lady at music award shows / concerts - half expecting secret service agents to jump up on stage.
