Biography

At the age of 14, the Belgian-Italian Lara Fabian was unknowingly setting the stage for an impressive international career by singing in Brussels’s clubs. A few years later, after winning many European contests and gaining some popularity, she launched her first single, followed by her first self-titled album…
Three years after the release of her first album, which went gold and platinum, she released her second album, Carpe Diem, which launched the career of this singer-songwriter in French-speaking countries, especially in Quebec. Within three weeks, the album went gold. She then took her music on tour, performing to over 150,000 admirers, while her album went three times platinum. She was especially appreciated by the Canadian public and music industry. In 1995, she was awarded two Félix awards by Quebec’s association of recording artists (ADISQ), namely Best Female Vocalist of the year (by popular vote), and Best Live Performance of the year.
Then, things began to pick up!
In 1996, Walt Disney Studios immortalized Lara’s voice. In addition to incarnating Esmeralda, the heroine of the animated feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame, she sang the theme song (“Que Dieu aide les exclus”) on the film’s soundtrack.
In October, her third album “Pure” went platinum in less than two weeks. Thanks to this album, she won the 1997 Félix for Album of the Year. The same year, “Pure” was launched in France where over two million albums were sold within two years.
