Alors je chante - Rika Zarai

Rika Zarai was born on February 19, 1938 in Jerusalem, Israel. She became famous in 1969 with this single, 'Alors je chante', a French cover version of the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest song 'Vivo cantando' by Salome, one of the four winners of that year's edition.

Interestingly, the original version did not chart in the Netherlands, but this version did. 'Alors je chante' peaked at number 10 in the Dutch Top 40.

My collection: 7" single no. 3652
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, April 18, 2009
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'Alors je chante' / 'Un mur a Jerusalem'

    Thanks,
