The Quebec artist will defend the French chances on May 13 in Liverpool.
End of the suspense. The Quebec singer La Zarra revealed live in 20h30 le dimanche on France 2, Sunday, January 18, the song Evidemment that she will sing to represent France at the Eurovision 2023, next May 13 in Liverpool in the United Kingdom. The Zarra was selected without going through a vote of a jury and the public as in recent years.
The artist, who became known with Tu t’en iras (20 million listens on Spotify, the leading music platform), cultivates an image between glamour and mystery. Nothing filters on his age. “I like my intimacy, I don’t reveal anything about my intimacy, I let my music speak for itself”, she explains on France 2. She just concedes in the newspaper Le Parisien that she comes from a family of seven children born in Quebec of North African parents.
Zarra, who travels back and forth between Quebec and France and lives mostly in Paris these days, does not hide her attachment to France. “It is a great pride for me to represent France at Eurovision, France is the cradle of the French-speaking world,” she explained on France 2. The artist is now looking forward to the contest that will be held in May. “I’m preparing myself a bit like an athlete preparing for the Olympics,” she confided on France 2.
