Isabelle Aubret

Here is a lovely song, Le ciel, la terre et l'eau ("The Sky, The Earth And The Water", from the 1967 movie "Alexandre Le Bienheureux" - "Alexander The Blessed") performed by the great French singer Isabelle Aubret.
Isabelle Aubret was born Thérèse Coquerelle in 1938 in Lille, France (her mother was of Ukrainian origin). In 1952 she became French gymnastics champion. Her first record was released in 1961. She won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1962 representing France and singing "Un premier amour" ("A first love"). After winning the Eurovision Song Contest, Isabelle Aubret became famous, and not only in France. In 1968, she returned to the contest, again representing France, finishing third, and singing "La source" ("The spring"). Aubret was a participant in the French national heats for Eurovision in others years. Her first attempt was in 1961 with the songs "Le gars de n'importe où". She was awarded second place. Another runner-up spot came Aubret's way in 1970 when she teamed up with Daniel Bératta for the song "Olivier, Olivia". Aubret's final challenge for Eurovision was in 1983 with the patriotic "France, France" which took her to third place. From 1969 on Isabelle Aubret toured Canada, Cuba, Algeria, Poland, USSR, Germany, Japan, Finland, Marocco and many more countries. In 1976 Aubret won the "Best Singer Award" at the 5th Tokyo Music Festival. In 1990 she was awarded Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur by the French President. In 2000 Isabelle became Officier de l’Ordre du Mérite. In 1999, she has performed in Las Vegas, at the hotel Le Paris.
