Biography

Claude Lombard (born 1945 in Brussels) is a Belgian singer, best known internationally for her participation in the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest.

Early career

Lombard studied at INSAS, a college of film, theatre and television studies in Brussels. She learned to play piano and guitar, and began composing music.

Eurovision Song Contest

In 1968, Lombard's song "Quand tu reviendras" ("When You Come Back") was chosen by jury voting from ten songs as the Belgian representative in the 13th Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 6 April in London. "Quand tu reviendras" finished in joint seventh place (with Monaco and Yugoslavia) of 17 entries.

Lombard returned to Eurovision in 1973, albeit as a backing singer, for that year's Belgian entry "Baby, Baby" performed by Nicole & Hugo. Although this finished in last place in the voting, the song, and particularly the performance, has since assumed iconic status in the Eurovision fan community.

Later career

Lombard moved to France in the 1970s. She co-wrote a successful musical called "Attention - fragile", and has gone on to enjoy a successful career as a musical voiceover artist in film and television, with many credits to her name. Films and shows she has worked on include Beauty and the Beast, The Prince of Egypt and Fraggle Rock. She also sang the French version of the Ai no Wakakusa Monogatari, Générique Les quatre filles du docteur March, theme song in 1988.
