Patrick Bruel is a man of many talents. Born in Algeria and raised in Paris, he established himself first as an actor, then as a singer. He's also quite the poker player. Musically, he found success in 1989 with his second full-length, Alors regarde, which became the first French album to sell more than two million copies. He has done pop, gone acoustic, and, briefly, rocked out. The connecting thread is the heartfelt singing voice of a passionate artist who throws himself into everything he does.
