This week, I’d like to feature one of my favorite singers and actresses of the past 20 years- Vanessa Paradis. If you are only familair with Ms. Paradis as the wife of Johnny Depp, you are sadly missing out. In France, this woman is a star-and has indeed earned it.
Coming from Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, Val-de-Marne, France, Vanessa became a national star at age 14 with her hit song “Joe le Taxi”. She rose to work in French cinema for the next 15 years, and has maintained her musical career- every album topping the next.
My personal favorite is “Vanessa Paradis au Zenith”. It is a live album, and it is magical.
