Nolwenn won Star Academy 2d season (equivalent to Fame Academy). Her voice and technical skills made her the vocal coach pet. The 15 other contestants reckon she had the best voice of the gang. She seduced several serious people in the business, even some reluctant to real TV concepts.
Laurent Voulzy, one of the most reserved among French artists, wrote her the luminous "Suivre une étoile" (follow a star), Lara Fabian gave her "Inévitablement", a typical Lara Fabian's ballad. One of my favourite sons is "Une femme cachée", elegantly written by Daniel Lavoie: "one woman hidden inside of me, one woman ready for all fights would like that when she'll wake up, you'd hear her voice and you'd be there to open her your arms". It's a beautiful song about leaving adolescence and becoming a woman (Nolwenn was 20).
Pascal Obispo is producing most of the album, bringing with him some of his usual songwriters. Lionel Florence wrote the power ballad "Cassé" (broken), the first single about a lost love (some saw an allusion to Nolwenn's dad who left the house when she was 10). It went to n°1. He also wrote "14 Février": "There are days when gods forget about you, when some memories become heavy, days you shouldn't live or you should put between parenthesis, just one day I erased forever, February 14". Finally he collaborated to "Rayer l'émotion inutile" (delete the useless emotion) with Hocine Hallaf, one of the mid-tempo songs of the album I like a lot.

Nolwenn is simply fantastic! Her voice is so perfect, the most beautiful I've ever heard... Listen to her, and you will fall in love with this most brillant 1st album. Queen of beauty, queen of personnality, quenn of music, she is the most famous singer in Europe.
The greatest winner of "Star Academy" (France) has an unbelievable success in France (where she sold 1 000 000 copies of her album, and where she recently won the Award of Breaktrought of 2003), but in Belgium, Switzerland, Liban and Canada too.
Her 1st single (disc of diamonds), entitled "Cassé" (Broken), shows the wonderful capacities of her strong voice. A unforgetable song... Thanks to that, she managed to be no1 (Global European Chart) for several weeks...
The last single, "Suivre une étoile" (Follow a star), keep making addicted all those who hear this nice autumn song. A big hit for Nolwenn again, ...
You really should buy this amazing album (realized by all the most famous french compositers/writers, like Pascal Obispo, Lara Fabian, Laurent Voulsy, etc...) in order to discover french music trought 12 wonderfuls songs and above all the voice of Nolwenn.

December 21, 2002, Nolwenn became the winner of the 2nd edition of “Star Academy" (French "Fame Academy" & "Pop Idol", best & most famous European Show). This began the promising career of a young star with a song which is destined to reach the top of glory very quickly. France, Belgium, Switzerland and many fans have already succumbed to her charm, disconcerting French. She bewitches us with her voice (powerful and posed at the same time) which separates her from the common run, but also with her charisma personality !
Surrounded by a fantastic team of very well known composer-songwriters in France (Pascal Obispo, Laurent Voulsy, Alain Souchon, Lara Fabian and Lionel Florence), Nolwenn shows in this first album all the extent of her extraordinary vocal capacities and wonderful capacities of interpretations. More than one voice, she is a large artist who appeared. Mast, sincere, moving and adventurous, the Nolwenn Leroy’s album has been on sale since March 4, 2003. First of the sales since its release in France, but also in Belgium and Switzerland, it carries out the exploit to remain placed among the best sales several months after its release. An album already worshipped, to buy absolutely !
To finish, my prefered song? ... "Cassé" (Broken's French translate) of course ! Her 1st single, wich managed to be FIRST OF ALL EUROPEAN CHARTS DURING SEVERAL WEEKS!

For a 22 year old Nolwenn has a mature voice and good range.
A very pleasant album to listen to. Casse and Etre une femme are very powerful tracks. Recommended - I will be interested to see abd hear her second album when it arrives on the shelves.
