Patrick Bruel (born Patrick Benguigui, on May 14, 1959 in Tlemcen, French Algeria: 1830 - 1962) is a French singer, actor, and professional poker player of Algerian descent.

Although Bruel aspired to be a football star as a youth, he decided to pursue singing after seeing Michel Sardou in 1975. His first success came as an actor, however, in 1979’s Le Coup de sirocco. He continued acting in films, on television and in the theater while pursuing his singing career. His first single, “Vide” (“Empty”), released in 1982, was not a success, but the follow up, “Marre de cette nana-là” (“Fed up with that chick”), was a hit.

In 2003, he had his last name officially changed to Bruel-Benguigui, his stage name with his birthname, before his partner Amanda Maruani gave birth to his first child, Oscar, on August 19. On September 21, 2004, he wed the 24-year-old Maruani; it is his first marriage. His second child, Léon Bruel was born on the 28th September, 2005.

As of 2004 Bruel has acted in more than 40 different television and film productions and made five studio albums and several live albums. His last album to date is Entre Deux (2002), a double CD of classic chanson that features duets with Charles Aznavour, Jean-Louis Aubert, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Alain Souchon and Renaud, among others. It sold two million copies and made Bruel France’s best paid singer of the year. At the beginning of 2005, in response to the South Asian tsunami of December 26, 2004, Bruel wrote the song “Et puis la terre” to benefit the Red Cross.

    Photos à ajouter... C'est quand même le comble qu'un artiste aussi reconnu que Bruel n'ait pas la moindre photo pour orner son profil.
