Kendji Girac is a passionate singer known for his genre-bending mix of Latin-infused pop, dance music, and contemporary flamenco. Born in Bergerac, France in 1996, Girac was accepted for The Voice with his performance of Maître Gims' song "Bella." Competing as a member of singer (and The Voice coach) Mika's team, Girac became a fan favorite, eventually winning first place in January of 2014 with 51-percent of the public vote. After his win, Girac released his eponymous debut EP. In August of 2014, Girac returned with his full-length album debut, Kendji, featuring the singles "Color Gitano," "Andalouse," "Elle M'a Aimé," "Cool," and "Je M'abandonne." It spent ten weeks at number one in France during late 2014 and early 2015.
