Artist Amir, who represented France at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, will be part of the well-known benefit concert Les Enfoirés 2017.

Amir will join a host of popular French artists, including singer Kendji Girac and actress Michèle Laroque, as participants of the annual charity concert Les Enfoirés.

Les Enfoirés was founded in 1986 by French actor and comedian Coluche (Michel Colucci), and has become the biggest annual media event in the French-speaking world, especially France, Belgium and Quebec, Canada. The show is dedicated to Coluche’s charitable institution les Restos du Coeur, who provides meals for the homeless and needy, and is broadcast annually from a different city in France. A troupe of France’s leading actors, musicians and other celebrities (known collectively as “Les Enfoirés”) participate in the concert, which is led by a Parrain or Marrain (godfather- or mother, the show’s ambassador).

Amir and his colleagues will take the stage of Mission Enfoirés in January 2017, held in Toulouse.

Amir Haddad (Paris, France, 1984), represented France at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden. With his song J’ai Cherché he reached a respectable 6th place in the Grand Final, earning 257 points. The song eventually became a national and international hit.
