Anne Marie David

LUXEMBOURG 1973 & FRANCE 1979

A true Eurovision icon - Anne Marie David won the competition for Luxembourg in 1973 then went on to represent France too!

Anne Marie David needs little introduction - she is a Eurovision icon and brought home the trophy for Luxembourg in 1973 and then going on to represent her native France in 1979 coming third.

Anne Marie began her musical career at age 18 in Paris when she became involved with musical theatre. In 1972, she was cast in the role of Mary Magdalene in the French production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

 

Luxembourg won the Eurovision Song Contest this same year and were keen to repeat their success. They called upon Anne Marie to represent them the following year and she gave them their fourth win in the competition!

Following on from her Eurovision success, Anne Marie began an international music career, touring the world and recording songs in recorded in several languages including French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Hebrew and Turkish.

In 1987 Anne Marie took the decision to retire from the music industry, but in 2003 a friend of hers convinced her to come back to the stage for a private performance in a restaurant in Toulouse, France.  

A few weeks after this, a record producer got in touch with her as they were keen to put together a compilation of 18 of her tracks. The album "Je suis l'enfant soleil" was hugely well received and became a best selling album online. From this, her career has continued with countless performances around Europe and beyond.

In 2012, Anne Marie celebrated 40 years of working in the music industry and we are delighted to be able to showcase her at this years EuroStarz!

Tu te reconnaîtras

Dans les rêves de l’enfance

Dans l’élève que le maître a puni

Dans la gare où commence

La première aventure de la vie

 

Dans celui qui doute

Dans celui qui croit

 

Tu verras, tu te reconnaîtras

À chaque instant dans chaque joie, dans chaque larme

Tu verras, tu te reconnaîtras

Dans cet enfant, parmi ces gens, tous comme toi

 

Dans les rêves de l’artiste

Que la gloire n’a jamais couronné

Dans ce monde égoïste

Qui renie ce qu’il a adoré

 

Dans ceux qui ont peur

Dans ceux qui ont froid

 

Tu verras, tu te reconnaîtras

À chaque instant dans chaque joie, dans chaque larme

Tu verras, tu te reconnaîtras

Dans cet enfant, parmi ces gens, tous comme toi

 

Tu verras, tu te reconnaîtras

Dans cet amour que j’ai pour toi

Oui, tu verras, tu te reconnaîtras
