The 4 years-old girl who was taking modern-jazz dance classes in Ensues la Redonne has grown up. Her passion for singing too. When she started at age 16 to take singing classes, her family and friends are aware of her talent. Progressively, Virginie tames her vocal power, masters her breathing, deepens her technique and works on her choregraphies. It's the time for her first stages and associatives shows.
In 2006, the Marseillaise jumps into singing competitions. Fourth then second the next year to Marignane, she perseveres and is rewarded in 2007. The artist wins the prize Sylvie Andrieux, in Marseille, in front of a professional jury. This award offers her the opportunity to work with people in the show business and to record a song which belongs to her. Composed by Patrice Carmona and written by Bernard Di Domenico, the song “J'irai à New York” (I'll go to NY) is a real success.
Reinforced in her artistic calling, Virginie goes from concerts to open stages, assuring Patrice Carmona's first part. She also sings for the benefit of charities, in particular the fight against cancer, and occurs with the troop Âme d'artiste (dancing school in Sainte-Marthe in Marseille). Her voice, clear and pleasant, powerful and sensual, seduces and operates clearly a symbiosis with her jazzy universe.
« Jazz can make you laugh, happy but also you can
be melancholic. This is the one music style that passes
on all kind of emotions, and that was made for
my kind of voice. »
In California, where she lived for 2 years, Virginie Prim got some inspiration, improved her song writing skills and developed a complex musical knowledge going from blues to country music with also some gospel choir. This experience has persuaded her to deepen her passion.
Coming back for a while in the Mediterranean area, Virginie is now getting on stage in Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur. On stage, she sings the greatest french success (Brel, Piaf, Nougaro, Berger, Dion…) and also the actual english sounds (Christina Aguilera, Norah Jones, Pink, Fun, Imagine Dragons, …) where her soul pop rock influences are giving all their essence. And when she interprets songs by Bruno Mars, Sia, Polnareff, or even Keane… in the same show, everything's possible. Only her voice counts.
Virginie is giving a complete musical performance. The diversity in her songs' choices, her American-french musical culture, her tuneful and communicative energy is creating an alchemy with her audience.
