Julien Clerc

Paul-Alain Leclerc, popularly known as Julien Clerc (born October 4, 1947 in Paris) is a prominent French singer, pianist, and composer.

His father was a UNESCO employee and his mother is from Guadeloupe. Many of the chansons he sings were written by Étienne Roda-Gil, a long time collaborator. His brother, Gérard Leclerc, is a political commentator on France 2.

For a time he was involved with French actress Miou-Miou, who in 1978 bore him a daughter, Jeanne Herry. Like her father, Jeanne has pursued a career in show business, albeit as an actress and comedian rather than as a singer.

Julien Clerc owes his fame in France to his leading role in the 1969 French language adaptation of the musical Hair. Since then he has sung a great many popular songs, and is generally considered one of the greatest francophone musicians of his generation. In 2003, he was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees after transferring the rights to his hugely popular song, Partir, to the UN.

    Love this artist. My favorite Julien Clerc song so far is 'Toi, tu me plais'. The entire cd it is on, Utile, is to say the least one of his best in my opinion. But this song is especially wonderful. I was happy to rediscover Julien Clerc last fall when in France. I still had his oeuvre from the late sixties and early seventies in mind, and was pleasantly surprised to see he's still going strong. Even though his hair is a lot shorter these days :-)
