Carla Bruni, the former First Lady of France, actress, and former model, is touring the USA once more in 2018 to promote her latest album, French Touch, a selection of nostalgic pop favorites imbued with her signature style and mischief.
Despite being born into a wealthy family, Carla Bruni always dreamed of making it as a musician when she was growing up. This was most likely due to the influence of her musical parents - her mother was a concert pianist and her adopted father a classical composer.
To add to her musical achievements, Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy was ranked as one of the world's highest paid supermodels during the 1990s, with a string of famous musician ex-boyfriends including Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger. She has continued to rub shoulders with household names in music, film and politics, and even sang for the late Nelson Mandela on his 91st birthday at New York City's Radio City Music Hall in 2009.
