Plastic Bertrand was bornon 24 February 1954 in Brussels, Belgian, is Musician. Plastic Bertrand is a musician, songwriter and a well-known television personality from Belgium, who remains one of the very few European musicians to have made it on the global stage without actually singing in English. Bertrand was a keen musician from an early age and he was no more than nine years old when he established a musical band with his friends from the boy scouts. However, it was later on with another band, The Pelican that he managed to get some recognition as the band was called to perform in radio programmes and at special nights at pubs or bars. Bertrand studied music at the Royal Conservatory of Music in his home town of Brussels and then created the band ‘Hubble Bubble’ with which he enjoyed some success before the band was disbanded. His most famous work was the solo, ‘Ca plane pour moi’ and although it was credited to him, the song was actually sung by someone else. Bertrand’s fame in music and the festival circuits quickly opened doors for television shows on French television and he even acted in a film. Bertrand is without doubt one of the most well-known French singers and has a worldwide following.
