Carla Bruni

Carla Bruni, (born December 23, 1967) know now by Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, is a French-Italian singer, songwriter and former model born in Turin, Italy.

Bruni was legally born to the musically endowed concert pianist Marisa Borini and indistrialist and composer Alberto Bruni Tedeschi. On her biological father’s side she is the heiress to the fortune of the tire manufacturer CEAT. Prior to becoming a successful musician, Bruni became one of the highest-payed models of the era, however soon became resentful of the lack of creativity in the industry and only modelled at special events. Around the same time Bruni appeared in the films “Prêt-à-Porter” and “Unzipped” and had been romantically connected to the likes of Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Kevin Costner.

Carla Bruni’s move to the music world, started with the songwriter sending lyrics to Luien Clerc in 1999. The lyrics were arranged and composed into six tracks on his 2000 album “Si j’étais elle”. In 2003 Bruni released her debut album “Quelqu’un m’a dit”, produced by Louis Bertignac, the album’s delivery and style was similar to that of her idols Joni Mitchell and Serge Gainsbourg. The album became extremely popular extremely quickly in France, going on to sell over a million copies.

The singer-songwriter’s second studio album “No Promises” arrived in 2007 featuring poems by William Butler Yeats, Emily Dickinson and W.H. Auden. After marrying French President Nicolas Sarkozy and becoming the first lady of France in 2007, she released her third full-length album “Comme si de rien n’était” in July 2008. The album featured all original songs bar a rendition of “You Belong to Me” – all earnings from the album were donated to charity.

Following a period of limited music releases, in 2011 she performed a cameo role in the Woody Allen film “Midnight in Paris”. Husband Sarkozy failed to be re-elected in 2012 and Bruni returned to the recording studio and released “Little French Songs” in April 2013.
