Jenifer: Évidemment

The singer Jenifer has released another video promoting her Ma Proposition collection of covers of songs
originally performed by France Gall that came out in June this year.

This time it is the ballad Évidemment, a song that was a hit for France Gall in 1987, and was written by her husband Michel Berger. The song was written in homage to the French singer Daniel Balavoine, a friend of Berger's, who died in a helicopter crash.

Jenifer established herself as a singer after winning the first series of Star Academy in 2001/2002 and Ma déclaration, her collection of France Gall songs, is her sixth album.

There's been a lot of bad blood between the two artists since the collection came out, amid claims that Jenifer did not ask Gall for permission, and counter claims that she did

What's certain is that the work of France Gall been given a huge exposure to a new generation, the album reaching number two in France and number one in Belgium.

The video for Évidemment was filmed in Corsica, where Jenifer is from.

Jenifer is continuing in her role as a coach in the TV music show The Voice, la plus belle voix for the third year in a row alongsinde Mika, Florent Pagny and Garou.
