Frida Boccara (October 29, 1940 – August 1, 1996) was a French singer.

Frida Boccara was born in Casablanca, Morocco.She submitted the song "Autrefois" to the French Eurovision Song Contest selection panel in 1964 but she was unsuccessful. At the Eurovision Song Contest held in Madrid, Spain in 1969 she represented France and performed "Un jour, un enfant" (One day a child) - music by Emile Stern and text by Eddy Marnay. Her song (along with the entries from Netherlands, United Kingdom, and Spain) shared first place. Boccara made a further Eurovision attempt in 1972 when she submitted the song "Du soleil au coeur" but it was not selected amongst the final ten entries.

Boccara renewed her links with Eurovision by participating in the French national finals of 1980 and 1981. However, neither song won.

She died in 1996 in Paris, of a pulmonary infection.
