"La voix est libre" ("The voice is free") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in French by Frédéric Etherlinck.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night (following Hungary's Csaba Szigeti with "Új név a régi ház falán" and preceding the United Kingdom's Love City Groove with "Love City Groove"). At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 20th in a field of 23.

The song is a motivational ballad, with the singer reminding his listeners that "the voice is free of everything" and that this can help them overcome the negative aspects of the world.

It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1996 Contest by Lisa del Bo singing "Liefde is een kaartspel".
