The year 2013 will mark the return under the spotlights in France of internationally acclaimed artist Lara Fabian, the 1988 Eurovision entrant for Luxembourg. This coming spring, the Belgian singer will release her new studio album titled Le secret. On the occasion of a concert given on the stage of the Théâtre du Rond Point, in Paris, on 27 January, in support of the same-sex mariage bill to be voted soon at the French parliament, Lara Fabian premiered one of her brand new song entitled Deux ils, deux elles.
About 150,000 people demonstrated in the streets of Paris last Sunday to show their support to the same-sex marriage bill which has been causing a lot of controversies in France lately. Many celebrities and artists gathered at the Théâtre du Rond Point at the end of the day for a special concert. Amongst them was Lara Fabian who is about to make a big comeback in France after several years of success in Eastern Europe (see previous article).
It is not the first time Lara Fabian sings about homosexual love. Back in 1997, her song La différence, from the album Pure, was about the same theme and as stated before performing her new track Deux ils, deux elles, she has decided to sing once more about love between two men or two women because she knows she has a large fan base within the gay community and that such songs prove useful in their fight for equal rights.
The golden-voiced singer will be back on 15 April with a new album made of some 15 original tracks she wrote together with Bruce Gaitsch, top guitarist for Sting and Madonna, and recorded in Nashville, Montreal and Brussels. Lara Fabian’s new album is described as a concept album, somewhere in between progressive rock and a movie soundtrack. The singer will also appear in the 2nd season of The Voice in France and will kick off an international tour in autumn.
