About Michel Berger

Michel Berger ranks among French pop music's most acclaimed and prolific songwriters, even though most of his most successful works have been made famous by other artists, from France Gall to Johnny Hallyday. Co-creator of Starmania, composer of several film scores, and involved in humanitarian causes, Berger offered French pop some of his most renowned, radio-friendly yet quality tunes, and thankfully overcame shyness to express his warm, exhilarating melodies with his round, soft, and reassuring vocal texture. Two of his most famous singles pay respect to his idols: the Jerry Lee Lewis-inspired "Il Jouait du Piano Debout" and the Elton John-inspired "La Groupie du Pianiste." ~ Olivier Duboc
