Francine Jordi (born Francine Lehmann, 24 June 1977, in Worb, Canton of Bern) is a Swiss pop singer.

As a young child she was already singing songs for the Japanese tourists in Interlaken. With this musical background she won the German Grand Prix der Volksmusik in 1998 with the song Das Feuer der Sehnsucht. From that moment on Jordi became a real star in Switzerland with golden discs, successes in the charts and tours throughout the German speaking countries. She also hosted two TV shows at the ARD. In 2002, she represented Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tallinn with a French language song "Dans le jardin de mon âme".[1][2] In the autumn of that year she made a solo tour with her band throughout Switzerland.
