Biography

For Irish singer Géraldine who represented Luxembourg at the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest, use the tag Geraldine Branagan.

Géraldine is a marvellous forgotten sixties pop singer, Born in 1947, Géraldine, after being member of The Djinns, got out a first solo 4 title EP in 1966 on Polydor. The same year, her song “Which Heart Will You Break?” (Quel Cœur Vas-Tu Briser?) wasn’t selected to represent France at the Eurovision. But at the Lugano preselection on January 21, 1967, she got that song representing Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna on April 8. She would get 0 points for a 17th place. But considering the studio version of “Which Heart Will You Break?” on the second Polydor EP, it is absolutely magnificent and would totally have deserved to win the contest. So what happened in Vienna that April 8, 1967 ? As we can hear now on Youtube, the live performance was unsatisfying : the orchestra was average, but mainly, Geraldine’s voice was deformed by nervousness and sometimes out of key. But this can’t explain 0 points, as the other live performances also weren’t nice. It’s just that there was not enough lobbying for Switzerland, represented by a French girl. Géraldine got out at least a third 4 titles EP in 1968, before we loose all trace of her. We discovered her last name at the time : Gautier, that certainly changed trough marriage, and we don’t even know if she’s still alive. All information is welcome.
