Just got me some tickets for her new tour.

She is one of the best live entertainers I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot of the biggest names.

I love Je T'aime and Tu Es Mon Autre

I remember her English song, I Will Love Again or whatever, it was cute for a week because it's a cheesy hit by numbers but it's a mess now :lol:

I still love I Will Love Again. The dance (album) version as well as the ballad version.

My favorite French songs have to be Je Suis Malade and Je T'Aime.

Je Suis Malade is one of my all time favorite songs but I'm not a huge fan of her version

I think her version is so full of emotion. Especially the live version from the 'Intimate' DVD.

I agree. Although I like all her three English albums, my favorite is still the first one.

Saw Lara Fabian last night in Brussels. Still amazing as ever. One of the best live voices ever!

And she really surprised us. Yes, she did sing most of her 'Le Secret' album, but also some of my favorite classics:
Je t'aime, Humana, J'y crois encore, Immortelle and... a song we never expected: I WILL LOVE AGAIN!!!!!!!!
Loved her for singing that song. :D

^ I prefer Adagio in English.

Her 'Le Secret' album will be re-released at the end of October, limited edition. :D

Got me the "Le Secret" collector's edition cd/dvd combi.
Really great. Especially the unplugged concert on the dvd.
She's not only singing some of her best known songs like Je Suis Malade and Je T'aime, but also other gems like Bridge Over Troubled Water and Imagine. One of the best live performers I've heard and seen.

Oh, people know she exists here? Technically, it's my favorite female voice ever, by far. I've even learned to enjoy most of her music just to listen to THAT voice (at first, I only really liked her covers, the rest was less interesting). I did really like her last album, "Le Secret". However, I think she could have done more with her concept for the tour. She's never been one to go with huge productions and she doesn't need them at all, but now it doesn't just feel intimate or "all about the music", it also feels like she (or whoever works with her) just wants to save money... Still an amazing voice. In this tour, her live performances of "Immortelle" and "Putain de Grand Amour", with the dancer, are my highlights, even if I'm just watching it all through my computer, not live.

Anyway, just to keep things fresh, her very last performance, an 8-min medley of songs from different periods of her career: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLpeK7EBncc

^ You should go and see her live in concert when you get the chance.
She's one of the best live performers I've ever seen!

I certainly wouldn't mind it, but the only two times she's come to Portugal, she performed in some obscure casino pretty far away from the capital and she never returned ever since. At the time, I was too young and I didn't even listen to her, but if she decided to come here now, I'd go. I just won't bother to travel just to listen to her, aha. But who knows? Scheduling some vacations for some period that overlaps with an upcoming tour would be a way.

I miss her so much! She was a mega smash here in Brazil with "Love By Grace" and "I Will Love Again". She recorded a single "Meu Grande Amor" in portuguese with a perfect brazilian accent.
That english song isn't the kind of work I could wait from her. :(

^ I Will Love Again sounds nothing like anythink by Celine Dion.
It's more in the vein of Believe by Cher.
And the ballad version is truely classic Lara IMO.

Her new English song is really great IMO. Love the Turkish vibe in the music. :D :D :D :D

One of the greatest vocalist ever.!!!!

Her "Phantom of the Opera" performance in 1993 gave me life and health.
