Biography

www.daniellelicari.com.
In 1964, she dubbed the song through a movie “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” for the role of Geneviève Emery, played by Catherine Deneuve.

In 1969, she recorded her greatest hit “Concerto Pour Une Voix”. the album has sold over 15 million copies alone. She has sold over 20 million copies of her albums during her career.

Her characteristic singing style has been notorious for lacking of lyrics, communicating emotions thru sounds rather than lyrics, in the same way a violin would; which may have fueled her popularity in non-French speaking countries like Germany, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Japan and Korea. She uses her voice like a musical instrument giving always a soft, unique dream-like tone. She has been called “la voz de la sirena” or the voice of a mermaid due to the quality of her voice[1]www.Daniellelicari.com[[1]]most of her recorded music are popular “classical music themes” composed originally for instruments rather than voice, while the arrangements consist generally of large orchestral ensembles mixed with a pop-rock band instrumentation. She also incorporated pop-rock elements that made her music very appealing to the general public. Her singing style has influenced Japanese Anime soundtracks of 1980s such as Seiji Yokoyama (Saint Seiya).

In 1968, she recorded “Treize jours en France” composed by Francis Lai; she also recorded a second version of “Love Story” dedicated to her by the same composer.

In 1972, she submitted her song “Au cœur d’une chanson” to compete in the Eurovision contest representing France. The French committee selected Betty Mars and her song “Come-Comedie” instead.
