Tu te reconnaitras - Anne Marie David

Anne Marie David was born on May 23, 1952 in Arles, France. She moved to Paris when she was eighteen to get involved in musical theatre. In 1972, she was cast in the role of Mary Magdalene in the French version of 'Jesus Christ superstar'. A year later, she was selected to represent the country Luxembourg with the song 'Tu te reconnaitras'.

The 1973 edition of the Contest was a threeway battle between three legendary songs: 'Power to all our friends' by Cliff Richard (representing the UK), 'Eres tu' by Mocedades (representing Spain) and Anne Marie David's song, which was the one that won the Contest in the end. Anne Marie David secured a second successive triumph for Luxembourg. The single was bought for me by Puck, helping me to complete my collection of winning Eurovision Song Contest songs.
