The first semi-final of France’s Destination Eurovision is less than one week away. The broadcaster is revealing the last few acts who will compete in the new national final. The next artist to be introduced is Jane Constance, the winner of The Voice Kids 2015. She will sing “Un jour j’ai rêvé” (One day I dreamed).

Jane Constance is originally from the island of Mauritius. While she is blind, she has said her disability hasn’t stopped her from achieving her goals as her parents taught her that anything is possible with hard work.

Jane got her break in 2015 on the second season of The Voice Kids. Her strong, mature and expressive voice impressed all three coaches. Jane made it to the grand final of the where her emotional performance of “The Prayer” ensured her victory as the winner of the series.

After The Voice Kids, Jane released her debut album À travers vos yeux (Through your eyes). In September she was named a UNESCO Artist for Peace, in recognition of her work promoting the rights of people with disabilities.

In her promo video, Jane talks about how music is a like a sixth sense for her. On the subject of Eurovision, she says it would be an honour to represent the country that launched her career as a singer. She also talks about how music can be used for positive change.

Jane will sing “Un jour j’ai rêvé” (One day I dreamed). While other artists in Destination Eurovision are delivering edgy, modern pop, Jane is keeping it simple and traditional.

“Un jour j’ai rêvé” is a classic ballad, with uplifting French lyrics that deliver a message of hope and inspiration.

Nice snippet. She’s really talented. Not so excited though. We’ll have to see her perform live.

Nice song, but not for Eurovision.That kind of song was modern in Eurovision in 70s,80s. Only one ballad similar like ballads from Eurovision 70s,80s worked good for France and other countries is song from France 2001 Natasha St Peir I was suprised that she was favorite number 1 for won that year with for me old dated ballad for that period, and get so many points that year from televote and finished 4th that year.

The worst entry for me. It sounds really dated.

I seriously can’t believe the line up they got for their national final, it’s incredible! Jane would kill it at Eurovision, she’s so charismatic and inspiring!

The song doesn’t seem that great though, but hopefully it gets better when we have the full version.
