Patrick FioriTuesday, December 11, 2018
Fiori was born to a French-Armenian father (Jacques Chouchayan) and a Corsican mother (Marie Antoinette Fiori) in Marseille, France. His father's family were escapees of the Armenian Genocide. In 1993, Fiori came fourth place in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Mama Corsica". The following year, his first album was released, entitled Puisque c'est l'heure. His successful audition for the musical Notre Dame de Paris enabled him to originate the role of Phoebus both onstage and in the recording studio. With Daniel Lavoie and Garou, he recorded the song "Belle". The following year, Patrick signed a contract with Sony and recorded his 3rd album Prends Moi (Take me). Patrick finally decided to end his role in Notre Dame de Paris in the year 2000 in order to dedicate more time to his fourth album, Chrysalide. Two years after, his fifth album was released, and in 2008 the album Les choses de la vie was released, followed by "L'instinct masculin" in 2010. In 2014, he released his album Choisir. Most recently, in 2017, he released his tenth album, Promesse, which he will be going on tour for in the summer of 2018. His 2007 single "4 Mots sur un piano" was number one in the French charts for two weeks.
