Amel Bent should certainly be taken seriously. From North African roots and under 30, Amel was brought up in the Parisian suburbs, and after winning la Nouvelle Star (French version of Pop Idol) she turned professional. She branched out by singing alongside Obispo and Charles Aznavour, and with her songs Ma philosophie and Le Droit à l’erreur she showed that she has really arrived on the scene! After Dancing with the Stars and taking part in the Génération Goldman Volume 2 album, she released Instinct in 2014, proving she was right to go her own way. She has put together a brand new show for the 15 planned Barrière Sessions.
