Natasha St-Pier, who represented France in 2001 at the Eurovision Song Contest, released the music video for her latest single, a duet with famous Portuguese singer Tony Carreira, titled Sous le vent (Onde eu for), which is a cover of a successful track by another Eurovision star, the 1988 winner Céline Dion.

The single is part of the new album of Portuguese star Tony Carreira who is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his successful career. The song performed in French and Portuguese is a duet with Natasha St-Pier. The original track Sous le vent was initially an all-in-French duet between the Canadian diva Céline Dion and fellow citizen Garou, released in 2001 (see here). The original song had reached the top of the French and Belgian (Walloon region) music charts and #2 spot in Switzerland.

Tony Carreira’s album Nos fiançailles, France/Portugal is an invitation to discover a series of duets with top French speaking artists including several former Eurovision participants such as Serge Lama (France 1971), Gérard Lenorman (France 1988), Natasha St-Pier (France 2001) and Anggun (France 2012), but also Didier Barbelivien who penned the 1995 French Eurovision entry. The album also includes a cover of Marie Myriam‘s 1977 Eurovision entry L’oiseau et l’enfant performed together with Lisa Angell.

Tony Carreira is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest fans. He may have never represented is home country Portugal but he did try his luck several times at the Festival RTP da Canção such as in 1988 (see here) and in 1992 (see here).
