Canadian singer Natasha St-Pier, the 2001 French Eurovision entrant in Copenhagen, has sent the radios the new single extracted from her latest music project Thérèse / Vivre d’amour. The song is the follow-up to the track Vivre d’amour performed as a duet with the 2012 French Eurovision hopeful Anggun. Titled Rappelle-toi, the new single is performed with no less than two others French singers, Elisa Tovati and Sonia Lacen.
Natasha St-Pier took everyone by surprise when she announced the release of a brand new album only a few months after the record Bonnes nouvelles which did not convince the general public, merely 16,000 sales. Her new effort is actually a concept album conceived together with French singer and songwriter Grégoire and based on the religious texts and poems of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, a famous 19th century French Carmelite nun who died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. The project will mark the 140th anniversary of the her birth.
The album Thérèse / Vivre d’amour was supported first by the release of the single Vivre d’amour, an exclusive duet with Indonesian superstar and the 2012 French Eurovision participant Anggun (see here). Thanks to the song, both former Eurovision entrants came back under the spotlights in France. The album quickly reached the top of the music charts and was certified platinum with over 100,ooo sales.
The new song Rappelle-toi will aim at carrying on with the success of this very original and unique but audacious album. Natasha St-Pier teamed up with French singer Sonia Lacen, a former musicals glory who made a come back when taking part in the very first edition of the popular TV talent show The Voice in France last year, and French actress-singer Elisa Tovati who is mainly known for her recent successful duet Il nous faut with the 2010 Belgian Eurovision representative Tom Dice (see here). The three young women sing together another emotional poem written by the Carmelite nun. Interesting fact, the three singers represent each one of three main religions.
Beside a showcase earlier in Paris, the whole project will be presented live for the first time on 4 July at the Madeleine Church in Paris and later on at the Saint Therese of Lisieux Basilica on 11 July.
