obispo02.jpgHello everyone and welcome back to the 2nd edition of Tuesday’s Music! Today, I have a special treat for all of the French music lovers out there. For those of you who have never listened to French music before I am proud to introduce not only one of my favorite singers but truly one of the top singers in France, Pascal Obispo! His first album “Le long du fleuve (Along the river)“ came out in 1990 and ever since then there has been hit songs coming from his mouth.

American singer Lionel Richie copied Pascal’s song “L’important c’est d’aimer” (The Importance of Love) and turned it into a smash hit here in America. In 2001, Pascal was honored by winning meilleur artiste masculin francophone or simply put “Best Male Artist”.

Pascal’s office website (French only) is updated constantly with a lot of information from the singer. His newest album is titled “Les fleurs du bien” and I must give it two thumbs up! Even if you can not understand a word of French I am sure you will enjoy listening to this great album. Les fleurs du bien album pays a tribute to Rosa Park who died in 2005. This song is like no other as it pays homage to a brave young African American woman who paved the way for civil rights for all minorities here in America. The actual song les fleurs du bien on the album is also a wonderful song to listen too. This is a must have CD for your collection. So lets take a listen to Pascal’s first single “Rosa” off of his newest album “Les fleurs du bien.”
