French star Renan Luce is to marry his Lolita

Millions of French girls will this week be heartbroken at the news that popular singer Renan Luce is to wed.

The 29-year-old star has proposed to Lolita  Séchan – the stunning daughter of controversial French singer Renaud Séchan.

Renan’s massive hits include Les Voisines and La Lettre, showcasing his genius for clever lyrics and storytelling as well as catchy melodies and brilliant music videos.

News of the engagement was broken at the weekend by Lolita’s uncle.

Renan’s songs are inspired by the 20th century singer and songwriter Georges Brassens and depict everyday life with a dose of humour and poetry.

He was born in Paris but grew up in Plourin-les-Morlaix, Brittany (near Morlaix, in the Finistere).

He began his musical career with his brother Damien and his sister Claire in a choir; afterwards he debuted classical piano at the conservatory of Brest, then at Saint-Brieuc. He then mastered the saxophone and also taught himself the guitar by composing his first songs.

After two years of preparatory classes in Rennes (at Saint-Vincent), where he performed in bars and at a few festivals, he was admitted to a leading school of commerce in Toulouse, South West France.

In September 2006 Renan released his first album Repenti, comprising 13 tracks and three live versions.

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.
