The details (from wikipedia)


Aurélie Saada, born in Paris on August 4, 1978, is a singer, songwriter and actress. She is also known under the pseudonyms Mayane Delem and Aurélie Maggiori (used during her marriage to Mark Maggiori). In 2008 She and Sylvie Hoarau started Brigitte, an indie folk band. The duo won "Group or Artist Stage Révélation of the Year" at the 2012 Victoires de la musique.

Early life

Born in Paris on August 1978, Aurélie Saada discovered music through her mother, a psychoanalyst who would play Led Zeppelin and The Beatles for her. As a teenager she spent time at Bang-Bar, a piano bar owned by her uncle Jean Luc Bitbol. There she sang music by Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Prince. At 16 she joined the Yiddish band Adama. She took classes at l'École Sudden Théâtre the theater school of Raymond Acquaviva. She also took free courses at the drama school Cours Florent.


In 1995, she starred in the short film No more by Daniel Cotard.

In 1996, she performed for three months at the Bataclan in the musical Mayflower with Eric Charden and Guy Bontempelli. The following year she sang a duet with Renaud Hantson on his EP track "Chasseur solitaire". The track is on Hantson's 1997 album Seulement humain and the 2006 re-release of the album. Her track Mauvaise herbe was used on the soundtrack of the 1998 movie Les Kidnapeurs.  On February 12, 1999 at the Bataclan, Aurélie Saada played the role of The Colonel in Herbert Pagani's musical Megalopolis. She performed alongside Francis Lalanne, Dominique Guillo, Veronica Antico, Fabrice La Villehervé and Cachou. That same year the audio of the show was recorded and released on CD. Aurélie also performed in the 1999 production of Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov and in the 2001 production Becket or the Honour of God by Jean Anouilh.

She did some work in television films after working forming a film group named The Quiches.  It consisted of her, Benoît Petre, Deborah Saïag, Isabelle Vitari Mika Tard, Morgan Perez, Alexandre Brik and Vanessa Pivain. A writer and actress, Pivain met Aurélie in 1999 at Sudden Théâtre. Like Les Deschiens or Les Nuls, the collaboration deals with absurd humor. In 2001, after they made two short films with very little resources, the group created Quiche Production. They made 45 short films and have received several awards.

In 2001, at the age of 23, she was signed to the label Delabel under the pseudonym Mayane Delem (In Hebrew, Mayane means the source, the ground water that gushes to the surface). Her first single was released in stores, followed by her first album. Aurélie's first album was released on August 25, 2003 following the released of her single "Je pars avec toi", which reached number 55 in France.

In 2003, Aurélie was asked by Marc Esposito to compose an English version of his song "Le jour se leve" for his film Le Cœur des hommes. She came up with "Rising day", which can be found on the film’s soundtrack.  Aurélie also worked with Marc Esposito in the 2006 film Toute la beauté du monde.

In 2004 she released her single "The Locomotion" with the Columbia Records label. This was the original music for the Peugeot ludix scooter ads. Meanwhile, she continued to actively participate in Les Quiches. In 2005, they released the film Foon. The same year, they created the TV series Allo Quiche which was in the form of 17 sketches. The show aired on Canal+ from September 2005 to January 2006. The 2006 series Enterrement de vie de jeune fille, also made by Les Quiches, is along the same lines.

In 2006 and 2007, Aurélie worked closely with Pierre Guimard. After collaborating on Guimard's song "On tourne autour" they started songwriting for Aurélie's new album, Petites chansons domestiques dans ma chambre de disques. The self-produced album was released in September 2006 under the label Rue Stendhal. For this album she decided to drop the surname Delem to shorten her name to Mayane. By this time she had collaborated with Vendetta on the songs "Tout va bien", "Poupée de chiffon", and "Manon des fêtes". Mélanie Laurent and Julien Boisselier were involved in the music video for "Poupée de chiffon", the 11th track on the album.

In mid 2007, she formed the duo Brigitte with Sylvie Hoarau. 

In 2007 she sang the vocals for the track "Sortir de l'ombre" from Koxie's album of the same name. The same year, she played the role of Judith Merrien in the play Les riches reprennent confiance by Louis-Charles Sirjacq at the Théâtre de Poche Montparnasse. The play received the 2007 Theater Award from the Diana Foundation and received two nominations at the 2008 Molière Awards. Aurélie played the role of Julia in the 2008 TV series Doom-doom.

In 2015 she helped write the song "L'Amour me fusille" for Johnny Hallyday's album De l'amour.

Personal life

Aurélie married Marc Maggiori in 2000. They have two children together, Shalom and Scarlett. In 2012, she divorced Mark Maggiori and went back to using her maiden name.
