1982 ... a first title which propels her One Shot to the top of the Charts. A startling to say the least shattering and which positions her ideally for the future
1982 ... a sequel which will not have the same level of success but which allows the singer to confirm her status as a rising star of the moment
1983 ... a first part of his career which takes place mainly in the Intimist field. And my faith, it pays off with this new big caliber success !
1983 ... here she is finally in the Dance movement. And my faith, she is not ridiculous, far from it. Of course, this title will not be the mega hit of the year but it holds up, it's clear
1985 ... small air gap in 1984 followed by a dazzling comeback in 1985 with THIS title. A title which will remain like the biggest success of all its discography and which makes her definitively return in the musical legend of the Eighties. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... a huge year 1985 with a second big dance hit. Like what, it was enough to change register to see her reach the summits !
1987 ... new air gap in 1986 and return in this year 1987 with a new title Dance which, once again, works very well my faith
1991 ... well, there, it's downright 4 years of absence. We find her the following decade in a dazzling form on a title Intimist of all beauty which allows her to give the best of herself
1991 ... she tries to adapt to the new dance trends of the moment and the least we can say is that she is far from being ridiculous
2000 ... a decade of 90 which will come to an end and which will see the singer produce very few titles. We find her at the beginning of the 2000s in a register in which we would never have imagined. Bluffing !
2000 ... an end of the adventure which rhymes with supersonic speed on a track with a completely frenzied tempo. When we think back to its beginnings, we hallucinate !
