THE INTERPRETER OF EDITH PIAF, THE FABULOUS NATHALIE LERMITTE!
Singing is certainly a true vocation for Nathalie Lermitte. Indeed, at the age of six, she started performing. The day she turned eighteen was also the day she released her first album «Tu es tout ce que j’aime», two singles of which sold over 400,000 copies. In 1995 she opened for Michel Leeb at the Olympia with Herbert Léonard. At the same time, Nathalie Lermitte also recorded numerous theme songs for television series and cartoons.
1989 marked her first steps in musical comedy: she was hired to play the role of Cristal in «Starmania», which she performed for three years at the Théâtre Marigny in Paris and then on a national tour, ending in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. This was followed by a succession of roles in musicals in which she often played the role of Edith Piaf.
In 2018, she joined Piaf! The show and has enjoyed worldwide success.
