"Je veux donner ma voix" ("I Want to Give My Voice") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in French by Nayah.

The song was performed tenth on the night, following Denmark's Michael Teschl & Trine Jepsen with "This Time I Mean It and preceding the Netherlands' Marlayne with "One Good Reason". At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 19th in a field of 23.

The song deals with Nayah's desire to give her voice to ensure that peace and harmony prevail in the world, even if it kills her to do so.

It was succeeded as French representative at the 2000 Contest by Sofia Mestari with "On aura le ciel".
