Still, Corinne Hermès would be discovered to the general public with her victory for Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1983 with Si la vie est cadeau.


After Eurovision, Corinne Hermès continued to release a series of singles and a compilation of different versions of her Eurovision entry (Si la vie est cadeau – 25 ans).

Corinne went on to release the album Vrai in 2006, with new songs, and a greatest hits compilation in 2012, Best of.

This year the French singer will make her come-back with an album of covers which will be launched in May, whose title will be Paris New York.
