Gregory Lemarchal – Tragedy and Legacy

March 5, 2009

Grégory Lemarchal was a popular young French singer. He died aged just 23 (May 13, 1983 – April 30, 2007) after winning the hearts of millions with his pure voice and clean-cut good looks. During his short life he:

  • Was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 20 months;
  • Became France’s champion of acrobatic rock aged 12 (1995);
  • Won the Star Academy (Paris, France) televised talent competition in 2004 with 80 per cent of the public vote;
  • Saw his debut single, Ecris l’histoire, reach No.2 in the French charts in 2005 and go platinum;
  • Saw his debut album, Je deviens moi, entered at No.1;
  • Won Breakthrough Artist of the Year (2005) at the NRJ Music Awards;
  • Completed his first solo nationwide tour in 2006, and a DVD of his performance at the Olympia was released;
  • Saw his French duet versions of the British singer Lucie Silvas’ hit single What You’re Made Of go to No.2 in the singles charts.

In 2007, Lemarchal announced that his doctors had ordered him to take a few months off to recuperate from illness. He was never to return to the stage: He died of complications from cystic fibrosis on the morning of April 30, 2007, waiting for an organ transplant.
