Games of chance...




Michael Fortunati, whose real name is Pierre Nigro, is a singer of Italian origin but who grew up in the North of France. And that's where he started his artistic career by creating a first group called 'Carré d'As' with his brothers.


Group that will produce several titles during the 80s including "Vous qui passez sans me voir" in 1985 in particular...


A group he left in the mid-1980s to go solo under his new name of Michael Fortunati. New name under which he released his first Single "Give me up" in 1986.


And for a first try it's a real masterstroke since the title will make a real planetary hit and project the young singer in a shattering way to say the least on the front of the stage.


A feat that he cannot manage to repeat despite the release of other Singles afterwards.


To discover or rediscover...

Tracks :


1977... the first steps, to say the least confidential, but which will all the same allow the young Pierre to take his classes as they say...



1977... even if this group will not remain as the best known of all, we can't say either that he will have been ridiculous...



1986 ... finished the Carré d'As, here comes the time of the solo career. A totally smashing start to his solo career that will make One-Shot the glory and fortune of this French singer of Italian origin then unknown to say the least. But who is no longer unknown now, that's for sure !



1987 ... a dazzling success that may have arrived too quickly and that he will be unable to repeat thereafter. Which will not prevent him from continuing the adventure...



1987... he will no longer be part of Italo Disco's gratin afterward but will find himself more or less in the middle of the table which is already not bad...



1987 ... the quality remains in place whatever it is, which allows him to remain quietly afloat. Even to hope for a possible return to the front of the stage thanks to this title…



1987... him in any case continues to believe in it and in principle he is absolutely right because in music, as we know, everything is always possible...



1987...a plethoric 1987 in terms of titles is clear. What is certain is that in just 2 years he will have succeeded in establishing himself as one of the sure values of Italo Disco...



1988... as much as the year 1987 will have been provided with titles, the year 1988 will be much less so. After as long as the quality remains in order...



1988...just for the record, his former group will succeed in releasing this title and show once again that this family is not devoid of talented people, that's clear...



1989...he reminds us here that he was born in Italy but grew up in France, hence the fact of singing in French. And even in French it works !



1989... the last title of a decade which will have seen him hatch and then explode at the highest level. Too bad he couldn't keep up the pace because it was all off to a damn good start...



1990...unfortunately, as very often in music, things are done and undone at a speed that is sometimes difficult to control...



1991... that will not prevent him from moving on to the next decade and continuing to believe in his lucky star. And on principle who would blame him...



1991...he said to himself that one title was enough to make him a star and that it would just take another title to eventually bring him back to the surface. So he works on it as much as he can...



1992... the style and the sound are trendy which leaves a tiny hope of coming back in the race in a consistent way. Just missing the little boost of destiny as in its beginnings...



1993...unfortunately an additional boost which is slow in coming and which in the end may never come. Hope gives life as they say...



1994... him in any case continues to believe in it hard as iron. Rightly or wrongly that's something else but the important thing is to keep the faith in these cases...



1995...the production of titles slows down year after year but he is still there in any case. It remains to be seen if he will still have the courage to continue like this for a long time...



1997...an adventure which will not exceed 10 years but which will at least have had the merit of producing a certain number of titles of more than certain quality...



1997...and as in music everything is always possible who knows if he will not come back later. Only him and the future can answer this question in any case...
