He won his first competition aged 14, singing Amsterdam by Jacques Brel. His main musical influences are said to be Florent Pagny, Il Divo and Josh Groban. He made quite a splash with his debut album Vincero, shifting 200,000 copies. He has also been awarded a platinum disc, his album reaching 5th position in the charts.
