"Les enfants
de l'an 2000"

--- Singer ---

Lââm (born on September 1, 1971) never tried to hide her passion for the Eurovision Song Contest. After her first hit at the end of 1998, she even planned to apply for a French selection to the ESC. Everything was made in time and the song "Les enfants de l'an 2000" was specially composed for the ESC. Unfortunately, with France 3's decision to hold a public TV selection, Lââm's producer decided to withdraw the young singer's participation. The CD single "Les enfants de l'an 2000" was released in November 1999 and quickly climbed up to the third position of the French charts, in which it remained for many weeks.

Lââm's route was not a smooth and easy one. With Tunisian origins, the young Lamia (her real first name) was taken away from her parents at the age of 6 and placed in a special youth institution. At the age of 15 she convinced her tutors to let her integrate a singing school in Paris. From 18 to 27 she was a backing singer for several French and foreign artists (such as Mariah Carey and Michael Bolton during their stage appearances in France).

"Chanter pour ceux qui sont loin de chez eux" reached the #2 position in record sales and Lââm got a Platinum Record award. Her first album "Persévérance" was released in 1999. A very "natural", friendly and sincere singer, Lââm often appears on stage with very eccentric clothes (her special hats and glasses are always worth looking at!) and her lively performances and vocal talent make her one of the most promising French singers.
