Biography

Vanessa Paradis was born in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, France, to interior designers André and Corinne Paradis. She began to develop her singing career at the age of eight when her uncle, record producer Didier Pain, helped her appear on the local television program L'École des fans, a talent show for child singers.

She recorded her first single, "La Magie des surprises-parties", in 1983 and performed it in an Italian festival in 1985. Although "La Magie des surprises-parties" was not a hit, it paved the way for the song with which she became internationally famous, "Joe le taxi", in 1987, when she was 14 years old. It was No. 1 in France for 11 weeks and, unusually for a song sung in French, was released in the United Kingdom year (25 January), where it reached No. 3. It was taken from her first album M&J (it stands for Marilyn & John) which, although it gained a number 13 placing in France, drew little attention in the UK and did not enter the chart.
