Real Name:
Marie-France Garcia
Profile:
Marie-France Garcia (born 9 February 1946 in Oran) is a French singer and actress. She is a Parisian pop icon of the 1970s.

Marie-France was hired in 1969 by the Alcazar in the Latin Quarter, where she became as famous a celebrity as Marilyn Monroe. She remained one of the celebrities of that music-hall until 1987. She became a member of FHAR (Homosexual Front of Revolutionary Action), alongside Guy Hocquenghem. As a member of FHAR, she was interviewed in the magazine "Recherches" (special issue "Trois milliards de pervers" (3 billion perverts), 1973). She was a member of a small group, the Gazolines, with Hélène Hazera. The two performed in "Les Intrigues de Sylvia Couski" by Adolfo Arrieta (1974). Alain Z. Kan paid tribute to her by naming one of his songs "Marie-France" in 1976.

Marie-France was a transsexual, a word that she disliked, maybe because certain television hosts automatically questioned it. « When one has passed onto the other side, why do they keep this title?», she regrets.

She appeared as a singer in «Barocco» by Andre Techine in 1976, where she produced «On se voit se voir», a song written by Philippe Sarde. She pursued her acting career in theater, notably in "Le Navire Night" by Marguerite Duras in 1979.With the album "39 de Fièvre" (39°C Fever) in 1980, through several renditions of sixties pop (Gillian Hils, Johnny Hallyday, Sylvie Vartan, Rocky Volcano) and written Jean-William Thoury originals and composed by Dynamite Yan or Vincent Palmer, she captured the style of the rock group Bijou. She reappeared in the film "Les Innocents" (The Innocents), directed by Téchiné in 1987. In 1993, she recorded a revival of Édith Piaf, in a duet with Marc Almond, who rendered two songs to her. Daniel Darc and Mirwais collaborated on her eponymous 1997 album, for which she wrote the lyrics of a few songs herself. Dave then invited her on his album “Doux tam tam” in 2003. Frédéric Botton wrote several songs for her in 2005. At the end of 2006, Léonard Lasry invited Marie-France to sing a duet entitled "Du désir au bout des doigts" (Desire at the fingertips) as an homage. This song is featured on the first Léonard Lasry album, "Des Illusions" (Illusions) (29 Music).

Marie-France also published a duet with Hélèna Noguerra on the last album which is entitled "Fraise Vanille" (“Strawberry Vanilla”) (released in October 2007). In 2008, Marie France recorded a rock'n'roll garage album entirely written by Jacques Duvallet and composed by Miam Monster Miam. The album is called “Phantom feat Marie France” and reminds her fans of the rock n roll Marie France of the 80s.
