Biography

Frederick Francois (Francesco Barracatto) is born in Sicily on 3 June 1950. He is only two years old when his family is leaving their village to establish themselves in Tilleur, Wallony, near Liege, a little county in Belgium. He did inherit his fondness of music and singing from his father Peppino. When he is 12 years old he decides to buy his first guitar and joines the band Les Eperviers. His father is approving this decision by helping hom to acced at the Music Accademy. This is a succesful thing to do, because Frederic Francois is winning that same year the singing contest “Festival du Chatelet”, which allows him to make his first record. But he is making his real debut in 1969 when he makes his first 45 tours record whith his actual nickname. He gets married and have a family of his own while he is still young. This thing happens in 1971, the year when his first hits are launched, such like “Je n’ai jamais aime comme je t’aime”, “Laisse-moi vivre ma vie”, “Chicago” and many others. As a tribute to his increasing charismatical success in France, he also conquered by his music Canada, Belgium and the Switzerland. The hits are still going on with titles like ” Mon coeur te dit Je t’aime” in 1984 and ” Je t’aime a l’itallienne” in 1985.

    A mais bonita voz de todos os tempos,um cantor muito talentoso,um grande compositor que compos praticamente todo seu grande reportório,que deu muitissímo sucesso em França;Bélgica e em quase todo mundo.Embora quase desconhecido emPortugal,o que é pena,porque só o ouvindo bem é que se pode dar valor a este excelente cantor e compositor,porque se trata autenticamente de um génio da musica,que me marcou desde a minha pré- adolescência e serviu de trampolim para todo o exito do Tony carreira com as suas músicas que este interpretou e com todo estilo que o mesmo emitou.
