Since his film career did not continue after this, he returned to university, where he studied communication while working a number of part-time jobs, such as babysitting and helping in a theater. Pushed by his family and friends, he decided to try out for the 2006 edition of Nouvelle Star. With an initial audition performance of Strong Enough by Des'ree, he surprised the judges, who did not expect such a quality voice from an admittedly ungainly-looking man. Nicknamed "La Tortue" (The Turtle) by Nouvelle Star judge Marianne James, he proved to be a popular contestant, and on June 8th, was crowned the fourth Nouvelle Star. He has stated that he would like to record a duet on his debut album with second-place finalist Dominique Michalon. He joined artists such as Tears for Fears, Lara Fabian, and Murray Head on the Night of the Proms tour 2007. His debut album "Inventaire" was released on April 16th, 2007, while the first single, "Elu Produit De L'annee" premiered in March. the album "Inventaire" debuted at #1 on the french charts and has already sold more than 363 000 (double platinum) http://christophewillem.spaces.live.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
