July 7,1979, an unknown French Canadian singer from Montreal -
all of sweet 16 - stepped onto the boards of New York's Fire
Island before a screaming crowd of 5,000 to perform her very
first single, "Come to Me".
She left the stage a star.
"Come to Me" reached #
1 on Billboard's dance chart, # 13 on its pop
chart, and is now regarded as a solid gold disco classic. It
was included on the soundtrack of the Miramax movie
Today France Joli is an award winning, international
recording artist who continues to perform around the world and
has seven albums to her credit. Her top ten hit singles
include "Let Go",
"Don't Stop Dancing," "Playboy",
"Feel like Dancing", "The Heart to Break The
Heart," "Gonna Get Over You", and "Partylights".
Joli has performed live throughout North America, Europe,
Japan, Mexico, and South America.
Highlights include concerts at New York City's Radio City
Music Hall and Paramount Theater, the Riviera Hotel in Las
Vegas, and the Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo.
Joli's many televised appearances include that on The Bob Hope
Special, The Midnight Special, The Merv Griffin Show, The
Dinah Shore Show, The Mike Douglas Show, and Solid Gold. She
was also the subject of a Big Blue Marble documentary.
Interviews, reviews and feature articles focusing on France
Joli have appeared in such magazines as Billboard, Us, People,
GQ, Interview, and Variety.
Joli's awards include the Juno (Canada's Grammy) for Best
new artist, the 1980 Billboard's Disco Award as best New
Artist, and both the Most Outstanding Vocal Perfomance Award
and the Grand Prize at the 1984 Yamaha World Popular Song
Festival in Tokyo, Japan (with the hit single "Partylights").
With the decline of disco, many disco artists careers went
by the wayside. France Joli, however, made a successful
comeback in 1996 with the release of a new 12"
single. Picking right up where she left off sixteen years
earlier, "Touch" became
a successful club hit and introduced Joli to a brand new
audience of clubgoers. 1997's "Breakaway"
met with equally pleasing results.
France Joli has met the test of time. She continues to
perform and as audiences very much appreciate, her voice has
only become stronger and richer.
