Anne Marie David
The 1973 contest crystallised into a titanic three-way battle between songs that have since established themselves as Eurovision classics: David's "Tu te reconnaîtras", the Spanish entry "Eres tú", and the United Kingdom's "Power to All Our Friends", performed by Cliff Richard, five years after he first represented his country with "Congratulations". Ultimately a mere six points separated third place from the winner, but it was David that had the edge, and she duly secured a second successive triumph for Luxembourg. After the contest, she started touring the world. She lived in Turkey for a while. She recorded two singles and one longplay in Turkey and got several awards there. She returned to Eurovision in the 1979 contest held in Jerusalem, this time representing her native France with the song "Je suis l'enfant soleil".
However, it was her turn to find herself on the wrong end of a tight three-way finish, with the Israeli entry "Hallelujah" edging to a home victory. She started to tour in France in 1980s. Between 1982-1983, she continued her musical career in Norway. Anne-Marie David gave a career-break in 90s but now she is singing songs in French clubs.
