About Patrick Fiori
Patrick Fiori was born on September 23 1969 in Marseilles, later on his parents moved to Corsica. He grew up in a big ethnically mixed family: his Corsican mother and Armenian father were bringing up five children. Theirs was not a wealthy family, so Patrick would take on any job: he used to work selling pizza, mending electricity and even as a decorator. But even in need, Fiori’s home was always filled with music.
“Since I remember myself, I have always been surrounded with music”, — recalls Fiori. “When I was a boy, my sisters used to sing with me and lull me with old time songs. Everyone sings in our family, even my father who composes and improvises despite his modest vocals”.
Fiori’s scenic debut took place when he was 12, on the stage of Marseilles Opera. Fiori quickly gained recognition and was soon invited to the talent show “Les Habits du Dimanche”, where he wins both the viewers’ sympathy and the highest grades from the experts. This project becomes the starting point in Patrick’s career. In 1992 he becomes the focus of public attention again, after the victory in the French Song contest.
Just like the legendary ABBA, Patrick Fiori becomes a real success after his performance on Eurovision contest. In 1993 the singer represented France in front of a multi-million audience in Europe’s biggest musical contest. His song “Mama Corsica” dedicated to his home country won Fiori a place in the top five singers. Eurovision made Patrick’s voice recognisable by the public and his talents known and interesting to songwriters, and in 1994 the artist released his first solo album, that was successful in France.
Then came around “Notre Dame de Paris”, that has changed the artist’s life and career for good.
