From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Isabelle Aubret (born Thérèse Coquerelle on July 27, 1938 in Lille, France) is a French singer.

Aubret won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1962 representing France and singing "Un premier amour" (A first love) with music composed by Claude-Henri Vic and lyrics by Roland Stephane Valade. In 1968, she returned to the contest, again representing France, finishing third, and singing "La source" (The Source) with music by Daniel Faure and lyrics by Henri Dijan, and Guy Bonnet.

Aubret was a participant in the French national heats for Eurovision in others years. Her first attempt was in 1961 with the songs "Le gars de n'importe où". She was awarded second place. Another runner-up spot came Aubret's way in 1970 when she teamed up with Daniel Bératta for the song "Olivier, Olivia". Not so successful was her 1976 effort, "Je te connais déjà" which finished sixth out of seven songs in the second semi-final. Aubret's final challenge for Eurovision was in 1983 with the patriotic "France, France" which took her to third place.


  • Aubret won the French national gymnastics championship in 1952.
